In 2012, a movie called Battleship was released, loosely based on "the classic board game." When Hollywood is willing to mine board games for movie ideas, you know something's wrong, but the notion was enthusiastically received among some of the suits, and rumors of movies based on such games as Monopoly and Candy Land began to circle. (It was only because common sense prevailed that no one mentioned Scrabble: The Quest For the Triple Word Score.) Horror movies, however, don't really have anything except... the Ouija board. So, cue short history lesson:
|"Weird" William Fuld and his equally weird sister Katherine|
Neither the MonsterGrrls nor the Monster Shop advocate use of Ouija boards (Punkin has stated that they "don't even make a good cheese-cuttin' board"), and this movie is, in part, a whole series of reasons why. Opening with a flashback of best friends Debbie (Shelley Hening) and Laine (Olivia Cooke) playing with an Ouija, we learn Rule One of Ouija Use: do not play alone.
|Debbie, who is sweet but stupid|
Again, like Stay Alive (which we previously reviewed here), Ouija involves college-age protagonists rather
|Debbie's stupid friends, trying to contact stupid dead Debbie|
