SF2016: Ouija

Ouija: Origin of Evil – Sun, Oct. 16 @ 8p

(Free Sneak Peek!)

A new iteration of the sweet-child-becomes-vessel-for-our-deepest-fears schtick, this prequel to 2014’s Ouija transports us to a ‘60s Los Angeles-set scam-scéance turned too real. We encounter the titular spirit board from the 2014 film in much earlier use, for a widowed housewife’s kitchen table phony-clairvoyant moneymaking scheme. But when she invites her two young daughters to check out the prop, it becomes clear that the board is no toy…

Dir. Mike Flanagan, 2016, DCP, 93 min.
