Nothing to Be Scared Of
26 October 2014 | by Vincent_BSee all my reviews

I was "abducted" by my friends to go see the movie a few hours ago and I am just getting back. I told them that I own an Ouija Board™ and have never been able to get it to function. The funniest thing about this item is its history. They were called "spirit boards" and regarded as a harmless parlor game unrelated to the occult until American Spiritualist Church founder Pearl Curran popularized its use to speak to the dead. So in effect, a Christian church made them popular. In the past, I have spoken to several members of the Spiritualist Church and they seem to have no clue about the history of their church and the board. They still practice speaking with the dead but reject the board due to popular beliefs.

Later in the mid 1960's, Parker Brothers took the trade name Ouija, which is French for yes and German for yes. They sold a few before the more popular horror movie "The Exorcist" came to the screen. After that event, churches and uninformed people began burning them and making up urban legends about the game board. So I find it ironic that a mere fictional movie caused all the hysteria and hype about this parlor game.

Now as to the movie, the board itself was no more than a prop for this movie. Much like the VHS tape was for "The Ring". It was more about a mentally disturbed mother who tortured her daughter. The movie was basically a jump scare film and only one caught me off guard, but it didn't scare me.

This week I have been watching some old 1980's horror movies like "Hell Raiser" now that is classic and very scary. They depend on old school effects and not computer generated ones. They used great makeup and well dress props besides having an original plots. I tried very hard to get my friends to stay at my house and watch some old classic horror movies on Netflix. In the end, they paid for my ticket and I would have had more fun staying home.
