First Full Trailer for Board Game Horror Prequel 'Ouija: Origin of Evil'
It was never just a game. Universal has unveiled a trailer for the upcoming horror prequel Ouija: Origin of Evil, the follow-up to the Ouija movie from 2014. Did anyone even want a sequel to the first one? The film has quite a cast: Henry Thomas, Elizabeth Reaser, Doug Jones, Parker Mack, Sam Anderson, Kate Siegel, Annalise Basso, and Lulu Wilson. The plot for this one involves a young daughter of a family being taken over by a malevolent spirit, and things get increasingly freaky from there. I can't help but say this looks fairly generic, with some bland scares and the usual horror tropes, nothing unique. Oh well.
Here's the first official trailer for Mike Flanagan's Ouija: Origin of Evil, direct from YouTube:
Inviting audiences again into the lore of the spirit board, Ouija: Origin of Evil tells a terrifying new tale as the follow-up to 2014’s sleeper hit. In 1965 Los Angeles, a widowed mother and her two daughters add a new stunt to bolster their séance scam business and unwittingly invite authentic evil into their home. When the youngest daughter is overtaken by the merciless spirit, this small family confronts unthinkable fears to save her and send her possessor back to the other side. Ouija: Origin of Evil is directed by filmmaker Mike Flanagan, of Absentia, Oculus, Hush and Before I Wake previously. The screenplay is by Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard. Universal opens Ouija: Origin of Evil in theaters starting October 21st.
