The trailer has been playing in theaters for nearly a month now, and with the release of The Purge: Anarchy coming this weekend, Universal Pictures has finally decided to unleash the trailer for their next horror venture Ouija. Inspired by the creepy, supernatural "board game" of the same name, the film follows a group of friends who get caught up in the dark powers of this mystical board, forcing each of them to confront unimaginable horrors. Actually, by the looks of this trailer, the horrors are pretty basic, and don't really offer anything in the vein of a promising story. It just hits every cliche in the book pretty hard. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Stiles White's Oujia, from the "Pretty Little Liars" Facebook page:
Ouija is directed by Stiles White, director of Boogeyman, The Possession and Knowing, who co-wrote the script with Juliet Snowden, the co-writer of all those films. The horror adventure follows a group of friends who must confront their most terrifying fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board. Olivia Cooke, Douglas Smith, Bianca Santos and more star in the film Universal releases on October 31st.
