I am the first to say that Ouija (2014) was hot garbage. So much so that I had completely forgot I had seen until I tried to watch it again and to my horror discovered that it was the same nonsense.
But, then this trailer for OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL happened:
And just like that, I got sucked right back in. Here are the deets on the new film:
Ouija: Origin of Evil is produced by Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Purge series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Blumhouse Productions' Jason Blum (The Purge and Insidious series), alongside Hasbro's Brian Goldner (Transformers and G.I. Joe series) and Stephen Davis (Ouija). Mike Flanagan directs from a screenplay he wrote with his Oculus and Before I Wake collaborator, Jeff Howard, and Universal will distribute the film worldwide.
I'd be lying if I said I was just cautiously optimistic about this. I'm actually kinda hyped. The vintage 1960s look of it, the possessed little (though Goodness knows this has been done to death), and the general creepiness of the whole thing. I am all the way in. I just hope I don't regret this life decision.
Se a few more images from the film before it opens on October 21:
