Forgettable Plaigerized Nonsense
5 October 2020 | by trnjamesbondSee all my reviews

Lets get one thing clear this is not a Blumhouse Ouija franchise production. It is a stand alone film mimicking the Blumhouse title/idea Ouija. Just so it attracts an audience. Why the film is branded as Ouija is beyond my logic, it had many factors not just about a Ouija board. but there are a million examples of this throughout film history, especially when it comes to horror, where producers/writers/directors copy popular titles such as Ouija.

This film is done in a found footage style. Three people set out to debunk ghost rituals such as Bloody Mary, Ouija boards, and so forth. The acting is mediocre, the story is very weak, and to put it bluntly, it is a forgettable film. Reason being, it has nothing to offer. It copies core elements from other popular films, such as Sinister, Lights Out, and last but not least The Blair Witch Project. We've all been here before.

Most of this film consists of bad writing, what I mean by that is, one of the scenes after the main female protagonist was asked a question after doing a ritual where she was locked in a freezer, her partner goes on to say "What did it feel like"? She responded "dark". Of course it's dark the door is closed!

Sorry folks saying that it was "dark" is not a feeling, it's an observation of the environment your in. This is one of the reasons this film is awful, it tends to copy as I said key scenes from other films in a plagiarized sort of way. Some scenes are highly irritating as far as camera work goes, what I mean is shaky cam syndrome, It was like shaky cam on crack in parts of the film. At least it has good cover art.

(Note to directors/producers shaky cam does not make a scene more enticing, it actually annoys your viewer, please stop trying to be Spielberg in Saving Private Ryan, because that's where that effect originated from.)

In closing, I must say watch anything else. But if you want to waste your time go for it. I do not recommend this film.
