Ouija: Ori­gin of Evil

The Sun (Malaysia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The spir­its be­come an­gry that some­one wants to take Doris away from them, and so be­gins an epic bat­tle be­tween good and evil.

This film got some rave re­views from pre­vi­ous screen­ings in the US. A few even found it to be an ab­so­lute shocker. But I find the plot to be tame and pre­dictable.

The fa­mil­iar old for­mula is be­ing used to cre­ate fear – a child be­ing pos­sessed by an evil spirit, and a fright­ened priest. I can al­most pre­dict what the next scene will be.

Hol­ly­wood re­ally needs to put its think­ing cap on and find fresher plots, and bet­ter twists to its sto­ries.

The only good thing from Ouija: Ori­gin of Evil is that the ac­tors churn out some con­vinc­ing per­for­mances.
