KEEP TELLING YOURSELF IT’S JUST A GAME.
After a friend’s suicide, Laine (Olivia Cooke) tries to contact her with help from an Ouija board. The filmmakers returned to the same theme as in an earlier horror movie they made, The Possession (2012), this time employing a classic tool to get in touch with the spirit world. Mediocre in every aspect, including how the horror is staged, how Cooke’s friends are decimated one by one and how the survivors slowly learn their supernatural enemy’s background story. Still, Lin Shaye is effective in a small but important role.
2014-U.S. 89 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Stiles White. Cast: Olivia Cooke (Laine Morris), Ana Coto (Sarah Morris), Daren Kagasoff (Trevor), Bianca Santos, Douglas Smith, Shelley Hennig… Lin Shaye.
