Although this is the first film theatrically released starring Shelley Hennig, she filmed this after completing her work on Unfriended (2014) which was previously released as Cybernatural making it her proper film debut (technically). It would be theatrically released about 6 months after the release of this film. See more »

[young Laine and young Debbie play with the Quija board]
I don't know if I want to do this.
Relax, Laine, it's fun.
First, the rules.
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.

A completely different version of the film was shown to a test audience. After negative feedback, the film was partially re-shot with several story and cast changes. Scenes from this version appear in some trailers, but has otherwise not been shown in it's entirety since. See more »
This movie was by no means a cinematic masterpiece, however can you really expect something of such high quality when the entire premise is based around a Ouija board that wreaks havoc upon a group of close friends.
Watching this film, my desire to watch a somewhat corny and predictable horror/thriller was achieved with ease. As someone who has been warned time and time again about the dangers of using supernatural means to attempt to contact the dead, I found this movie to be highly entertaining in a cheap-thrills kind of way.
If you are looking for a simple, cliché supernatural themed movie to watch with close friends for a movie night, I'd definitely recommend. This movie is neither terribly unbearable nor disgustingly gory, and as such I feel is relatively inoffensive to those who enjoy these themes in their movies.
