As a viewing option for the Halloween season you could do worse, but you could also do better.

Sadly, whilst Ouija: Origin of Evil has a couple of interesting moments, overall it's a messy disappointment.

I'm still a little confused about the Ouija board's motivation.

Tedious supernatural thriller based on the Hasbro game.

A lack of memorable moments or original components makes Ouija: Origin Of Evil feel completely forgettable
November 2, 2016
There is clearly a great deal of love and craftsmanship put into Ouija: Origin Of Evil, and that's what makes its flatness so frustrating.
October 24, 2016
[It's] a largely silly, disjointed construction of run-of-the-mill scares and awkward priest jokes, but at least director Mike Flanagan gives it his best shot, which is more than we can say of his predecessor.
October 24, 2016
The unsavory plot permutations of the final reel undercut the promise of the earlier ones....Though a cut above the usual horror fare, this is a step down from Flanagan's previous film, 'Oculus.'
October 21, 2016
A sappy subplot involving teenage daughter Paulina and her prom date is just a clich too far in a movie that makes rather too much of its references to The Exorcist, Poltergeist and Carrie.

If you're determined to head to the theater for a fright this Halloween, Origin of Evil will provide a scare or two. But you'd be a lot better off watching one of the real classics at home.

You don't have to ask a Ouija board about the quality of this failed attempt at horror. If you did, it would spell out S T I N K E R.

All attempts to make the film look like it was made shortly before The Exorcist - the non-period period clothing, the 1960s Universal logo - play as kitsch, not clever.
October 20, 2016
With so much going on, it is little wonder that the film seems so sprawling and unfocused.
October 20, 2016
Ouija: Origin of Evil is an interesting exercise in watching filmmakers try to mint a franchise out of basically nothing.
October 20, 2016
Ouija: Origin of Evil is sadly derivative, totally stupid, routinely cheeseball and ultimately disappointing.
October 20, 2016
It is the necessities of making a PG-13 (and excessively formulaic) horror movie that constantly undercuts the movie's intriguing ideas.
October 20, 2016
It's all stuff we've seen before, especially in Japanese ghost fare.
October 20, 2016
Ouija: Origin of Evil pales in comparison to some studio-scale horror we've seen this year, but for what it's worth, it is an improvement on the 2014 Ouija movie.
October 20, 2016
The movie never envelops us or the characters in palpable paranoia or edge-of-your-seat suspense. A series of well-timed, PG-13-rated shocks compensates.
October 20, 2016
You wait, hoping for a good, classic horror film. It begins to deliver, big. Then it disappoints a little. Then it comes back again, strong. Then it fails you again.
