From beyond the grave! Ouija returns!

3 years agoby:

Ok, Universal, we get it! You really want to make board games into movies. The problem with adapting the Ouija board for film is that 3 out of 4 other horror movies already use it as a plot device. It's going to be very hard to adapt this product without copying PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, or JUMANJI.

So, here's is my idea: Do something completely outside of the box! Do an animated film, and get the guy who did the animated sequence for HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 1. Something out-there that will blow our minds. You have no where to go but up!

The film was considered dead last summer, but was reported today that OUIJA is back on track with Universal. It seems that it will become a much smaller film than originally planned. Somewhere in the $5 million range. And it is possible that the film will be a “found footage” genre picture.

Critics of the project would have already seen that coming a mile away. The greatest horror/thriller films are those that can redefine the genre, or spin a worn-out cliché into something we haven't seen before.

So the question remains. Can you make a movie about a Oujia board and still surprise an audience?

not really looking forward to it

but I never saw why this one went into dev hell so quickly, and it's nice to see it's back because honestly, sure it has a good chance at sucking, but year after year it's 'oh look a new Paranormal Activity' and that's about it, so it's nice to see a new property out there, especially one that has POTENTIAL like this one, because come on -- it truly does (even if the chances of that potential being capitalized is slim) fingers crossed!

A documentary about Ouija boards would be more interesting. I'm sure we've all heard stories from people that have used them. Convinced that the supernatural event they experienced was real.

Jumanji, a horror movie?

As for this Ouija bullshit; too much fuss for what's undoubtedly gonna be a terrible to mediocre horror film.

Anyone remember the movie Witchboard? I remember watching it like ten years ago, and I seem to recall that it was awesome... but like I said, ten years has done a lot to my memory.

Challenge Accepted

Here's my plot: A couple of teens find a board with mystical symbols with instructions carved on the back. They use it and an evil spirit named Ouija starts hunting the teens down one by one. Some remaining teens bring the board to an old mystic who claims that the symbols on the board give it it's true power. Whether or not they choose to destroy the board will not alter the fact that the evil spirit will come for them. However the mystic tells them that each time the board is used it

However the mystic tells them that each time the board is used it actually hurts the spirit thus aggravating him. The remaining teen gets the board mass produced and it becomes a worldwide phenomenon while eternally torturing Ouija.
