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?

Ouija embodies everything wrong with horror movies these days.
5 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie never had a chance of being good. It's a modern horror movie based on a board game - was anyone optimistic about this? Anyway, it still could have been campy fun; after all, it is about a board game. But it's not fun. It's boring as hell. Everything about this movie fails on so many different levels. The writing is horrendous and doesn't even make sense, literally, the plot holes are glaring. The acting is excruciatingly boring; it's like they wanted to blurt out their lines with no emotion whatsoever to get the production of this terrible movie over with as quickly as possible. The directing is abysmal - scares anyone? Nope, not a one. They try to throw in fake out jump scares every once in a while but they make you laugh more than anything at how pathetically unscary they are. The entire movie is pathetic really.

What saves Ouija from the dreaded 1 rating is the fact that it isn't a remake or rehash. They actually tried to make something original, with the premise at least - the execution is as generic and awful as you can imagine. So there, an extra point for Ouija, congratulations. If you look at it as a comedy you can get a few laughs out of it, but that's only because Ouija is so blatantly horrendous that it embodies everything wrong with the horror genre these days. If you're looking for authentic scares and genuine thrills, then stay as far away from Ouija as you possibly can.
