Ouija use goes wrong in [REC] co-creator Paco Plaza’s Veronica

From THE EXORCIST to WITCHBOARD to OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL, the talking board patented by Elijah Bond in 1890 has been at the center of many horror films, and a board is about to cause trouble for yet another batch of characters in the film VERONICA, directed by Spanish filmmaker Paco Plaza, co-creator of the [REC] franchise.

VERONICA stars newcomer Sandra Escacena and tells the story of 

a young woman who must protect her younger brother and sister after she attempts to bring back the spirit of their dead father through a Ouija ritual.

Co-starring with Escacena are Ana Torrent (pictured above), Consuelo Trujillo, and Plaza's [REC] 3 star Leticia Dolera (pictured below).

The filmmakers claim that VERONICA is based on a true story, "the only unexplained supernatural case in the annals of the Spanish police."

The film sounds interesting and I enjoyed Plaza's work on the [REC] series, but I have a feeling that my favorite movie about a young woman reaching out to the spirit of her dead father will remain FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VII: THE NEW BLOOD. Ouija board spirits just can't compete with Jason Voorhees.

VERONICA will be released in Spain this fall.
