Trivia

The first trailer for the film was released with the theatrical release of The Fault in our Stars (2014) containing alternate footage. A new trailer was released in the summer containing new scenes. In an interview, Olivia Cooke stated that about 50% of the film was reshot due to a negative reaction from test audiences, as a result Universal ordered a week's worth of re-shoots during the summer 4 months before it's theatrical release which drastically altered the original plot. The original cut contained a different assortment of footage including an alternate death scene for Debbie where she instead falls to her death instead of hanging herself (which is why the chandelier is swinging when Pete sees it because she struck it while falling) along with the most advertised scene where Sarah's eyes roll back and she says "it's not even real okay? It's just a game". Nona was also supposed to have a more prominent role in the film as it implied she becomes possessed in the promotional material. See more »

Goofs

When Laine goes up in the attic through the small ceiling hatch, there are very large objects in the attic that would never have fit through the hatch, including an easy chair and a barrel. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
[young Laine and young Debbie play with the Quija board]
Young Laine: I don't know if I want to do this.
Young Debbie: Relax, Laine, it's fun.
Young Debbie: First, the rules.
Young Debbie: You can never, ever play alone. You can never play in a graveyard. And you always have to say goodbye. To start, you circle the board once for each player. Then we say, as friends we gather, hearts are true.
Young Laine: [repeats] As friends we gather, hearts are true.
Young Debbie: Spirits near we call to you.
Young Laine: [repeats] Spirits near we call to you.
Young Debbie: Is someone here with us?

One of the worst...
18 September 2015 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I usually don't introduce posts in that manner but on this special occasion, it really has to be. And, what really made the deception bigger was the fact that I remember that I paid $10 to watch this movie in a cinema in Puerto Rico (I can't remember if it was Halloween or not, but anyways) when I could have saved myself from such a struggle. Ouija is the pinnacle of the type of movie one would watch while doing something on a side and certainly not pay 100% of his attention towards it -- something well, which is not easy to do in a cinema. Then, you can always leave [...]

What bothers me primarily is the extreme simplicity that resides into the movie. Secondly, the fact that I was able to anticipate 80 to 90% of the times when the scare was going to fall. At last, the fact that when the scary part DID fall, they were not as scary as I would have expected them to be.

All I learned after Ouija was that it is the perfect movie to introduce somebody who hates horror movies to the genre but certainly not for intermediate/advanced spectators who love it.

I remember my reaction at the end of the session and I was like 'what did I just watch' and it seemed like my friends had the same reactions. Unfortunately, I really do not know what to say and don't have much to say from a pure technical standpoint because it's just too simple minded and too predictable to really have anything of note and my post would be filled with unnecessary negatives. I'll just let the my note speak for itself then.
