Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Deliciously creepy, thanks largely to a terrific performance by the youngest of its stars.
Rotten: Ouija: Origin of Evil is an interesting exercise in watching filmmakers try to mint a franchise out of basically nothing.
Fresh: An entertaining and creepy ghost story that just might scratch that seasonal itch.
Fresh: Both Reaser and Thomas provide unexpected depths to what could have been schematic roles, and the younger performers are even better.
I was hoping this movie was what others claimed was great, but it was not. I can't believe I wasted money on this.
This movie lacks any originality. At a painstakingly slow pace, the first hour tries to build something. Then, like a child trying to inflate a balloon that slips out of its fingers, the story quickly deflates. The plot, the ending, it is just laughable. If Apple offered refunds for this rental, I would be asking for my money back.
"Ouija: Origin of Evil" is the film we needed after the box office flip that is Ouija (2014). The overall acting and plot line are great, which is a bonus since horror movies today commonly have a lack of those things. High production value was clearly shown throughout. But of course, and most importantly, it was scary. Well, that's an understatement. IT WAS TERRIFYING. Origin of Evil is one of the few horror films that will make you want to sleep with the lights on. Great flick. 10/10
