Ouija: Origin of Evil – Trailer

Contrary to what some people say 2014’s Ouija–based on the Hasbro board ‘game‘; And before you say it, Yes. that spooky-ass thing is an actual game–wasn’t a bad movie more than it was a ‘Meh’ movie.

And that’s coming from someone who had the misfortune of paying to see it.

It took what should have been terrifying–Ouija, or spirit boards are that all on their lonesome–and turned it into bland, horror-by-the-numbers schlock.

Despite that being the case the movie cost $5 million to produce and earned over $100 million worldwide; which is another way of saying that there’s no way that there wasn’t going to be a sequel.

Though this time around I think that the producers have keyed into how poorly the first movie was received (despite how much it earned).

Because this time around they hired Mike Flanagan, who helmed the far superior Oculus, to direct.

They also increased its budget–from $5 to 6 million for the sequel–so this time around Oculus: Origina of Evil should at least make an impression.

Something the original can’t claim to do.
