Review: Ouija House

DVD: Ouija House (2018)

When using a ouija board there are certain words that you probably wouldn’t want it to spell out. Examples being D.E.A.T.H. or K.I.L.L.

Unfortunately, the board used in Ouija House should really have spelt D.U.L.L. at the very beginning of the movie and spared everyone watching 95 minutes of a ‘by the numbers’ horror story that eventually makes you think that D.E.A.T.H. may well have been the preferable option.

The obvious low budget of Ouija House did not deter me from watching at all, in fact regular readers of this website (and listeners to our podcast too) will know that low budget movies are very often the ‘bread and butter’ of my cinematic viewing. It’s just a shame that this particular piece of bread is stale and curled up at the edges.

For the horror fans out there that will watch this no matter what anyone says, I shall give nothing away of the narrative. Suffice it to say that you will not come away with many surprises.

Enticed by the name of Dee Wallace on the cover, it is a shame to find that her part is nothing more than a cameo appearance, and the rest of the actors are largely forgettable, spouting terrible dialogue while trying to look scared.

One for horror completists only.
