Eagerly the game is played and soon they make contact with the tormented Spirit of Jonah. They begin to ask questions and soon learn how, when, and why Jonah was murdered in his lifetime. Mocking Tony, who warns them that it is a dangerous game to play, they make the choice of their young lives when they participate together in summoning Jonah beseeching him to come to them through the spirit board, What starts as a joke soon turns into a nightmare of garish ...

Great movie
29 May 2013 | by (02914) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie! I rarely watch horror movies as many of them are disturbing. This movie was very well written. The music in the film was fantastic & the characters were all characters that many of us can relate to. The church that was shown in the beginning I have been to many times so I thought that was great. This film made for good conversation between me & my friends that were watching it with me when it was over regarding the game the kids were playing that got them in trouble! I really hope that there will be a Jonah Lives part II. I won't give away the ending, but possibly, Jonah still might not be done with what he has to do!
