Ouija 2: Origin of Evil trailer drops

So, yet another film based on a board game from Universal? Well, we all remember what happened with BATTLESHIP, right?  Well it seems history won't repeat itself this time. OUJIA 2: ORIGIN OF EVIL is, in fact, a sequel to the succesful OUIJA movie that came out a couple years ago (and that we all promptly forgot existed). I guess it helps that...
