Length:- 1 hr. 29 min.
"Ouija" is a horror film which involves calling of a ghost or evil spirits by the usual techniques. The cinematography is just looks average to me. The characters are mostly teenagers and the film's execution is slow."Ouija" is pretty much like a TV Series rather than a film. On the auspicious occasion of Halloween there isn't something good offered here. It's just a pretty simple story with a handful of guys and girls. I was thinking that this film could not create some kind of interest or curiosity. Also, after a while I thought what's going on here?It sounds like we are watching a film of probably 80's. The budget of "Ouija" also seems to be a concern.
We see Oliva Cooke playing a girl who for almost half hour does somethings which would not make much sense.After a while I thought what does the filmmaker wants to convey.Finally after half an hour of close to preposterous events we see something happening. A bunch of guys and girl about five of them started talking to spirit. This is where first time it was believable that it's an horror film.
Some kind of Ghost do contact these guys the next day on few of them were contacted by a ghost by writing "Hi Friend".Slowly the movie gets a little scary. The guys and girls trying to get some of the answers by calling the ghost in yes or no for the most part. Rest is being answered by the help of an instrument.A warning has been given by anonymous ghost that they should run and a mother is coming.
Laine (Oliva Cooke) tries to understand what went wrong with the evil spirit. She mets Paula (Li Shayne) who tells in brief how her mother turns into evil spirit. Actually that's not too much of help.Finally, Laine realizes that she needs to figure out something by herself.What she does to control the evil mother's ghost, is the part of climax.
