Hot on the heels of that insanely cool trailer comes this TV spot for Ouija: Origin of Evil, which is directed by genre darling Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Hush).
2014’s Ouija may have made a stack of cash for Universal but it received justifiably terrible reviews across the board and thankfully, the studio decided to change tack for part 2, hiring a respected horror director and putting their trust in him.
Set in LA in 1965, Origin of Evil follows a charlatan medium who finds a new tool of deception when she brings a Ouija board home, planning to use it in her phoney séances. The board however, brings through a genuine evil entity that possesses her youngest daughter Doris, and the family must battle to save her, and send the malevolent spirit back to the other side.
Ouija: Origin of Evil stars Twilight’s Elizabeth Reaser, Sam Anderson (Devil’s Due, Lost), Kate Siegel (Oculus, Hush), Doug Jones (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy), Parker Mack (Divergent) and Lulu Wilson (Deliver Us from Evil) as young Doris.
Expect screams, nightmares and decent box-office returns when Ouija: Origin of Evil opens on October 21st.
