Though there are many other horror movies about Ouija boards - some with the same title - this film is not officially a remake of any of them and tells its own story revolving around the titular game. See more »
Near the beginning of the movie, Debbie walks up the stairs prior to hanging herself. Part way up the stair, the top she is wearing reveals her bra-strap and bared right shoulder, in contrast to how the top is shown during the rest of the opening scenes. See more »
Okay...so. Normally when you see a PG-13 horror movie come out, it's either going to totally suck, or rock. This movie was actually, in the middle. It did not suck and it did not rock. *It was basically a mixture of Insidious and Final Destination.* The scares in the movie were typically those corny jump-scares, but I have to say, they weren't bad. (Or really that good, either.) The thing about PG-13 horror movies is that they aren't really that scary at all. This movie was alright, I wouldn't say scary, but it would be enough to scare a little kid because of the loud noises and scary images. The story is okay. It kind of gets better and worse and better and worse. In the beginning, the story is declining, getting worse and worse, because of all the cliché and disappointing climaxes. Then, it sort of gets better... and then back down to really bad. Then, in the second half of the movie, it starts to get really, really, intense and actually good. When you think it's over, it isn't. But when it is over, you wouldn't think that was the end. The acting was.. okay? In the beginning the acting totally STANK! I mean, it was really fake. But it got better and better as the movie progressed. The main character, Laine (Olivia Cooke) did an okay job of acting. She was the type in the movie that was sort of dumb, but in the end turned out to be a bit clever. All the things in the movie that happen are mostly things that you'd expect to happen. The special effects really were disappointing, when the monster/entity (not revealing any more than that) is shown, WOW are the effects SO FAKE.
Lastly, don't let reviews change your mind about a movie. They are simply opinions. Just because this movie has under average ratings doesn't mean that you will automatically think this movie will and always will stink. Don't always look at the negative sides of a movie. :) And also, be careful. On my trip for watching this movie, there was a young delinquent cracking jokes to his "encouraging" friends, disrupting the full experience, so I may have missed some good parts of the movie.
