Joblo Review: Ouija: Origin of Evil


I'm not necessarily all in on the Mike Flanagan bandwagon just yet, but it's hard not to want to flag it down after seeing Ouija: Origin of Evil, a prequel with almost literally no right to be as effective as it is. Coming two years after the woefully uninteresting Ouija (which is everything wrong with PG-13 horror movies), Origin of Evil shakes up the burgeoning franchise with an atmospheric 60s aesthetic, sympathetic characters and some seriously nerve-jangling scares. It's not high art, nor is it a modern classic, but as far as an enjoyable haunted house experience goes, Ouija: Origin of Evil gets the job done, and well.

The story is too old to be commented.
