Following the box office success of Ouija (2014), which conjured up $102.5 million off the back of a small budget, comes the sequel Ouija: Origin Of Evil, though the film is perhaps more accurately described as a prequel.
Mike Flanagan, who had success with Oculus (2013) and Before I Wake, takes over the directorial reins, co-writing the script with occasional collaborator Jeff Howard. Ouija: Origin Of Evil spins the clock back to 1965, to find Elizabeth Reaser (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) as a widowed mother running a scam seance business with her two daughters. But when they add a new ouija board to their bag of tricks, they unwittingly invite something very real and very evil into their lives, channelled through youngest daughter Doris (Lulu Wilson).
Soon, aided by a man of faith (Henry Thomas), they are locked in a battle to send the spirit back to the other side. With Doug Jones (Pan's Labyrinth) helping out on the scare front, Ouija: Origin Of Evil will be lurking in our cinemas from 21 October.
