Trailer: Ouija Origin of Evil

It’s been known for awhile that Mike Flanagan was set to direct the sequel to 2014’s Ouija, and that it would not be very connected to the first film. Ouija was not very well liked, so the news that the sequel would be a different story, and be made by a man who’s previous work  they did like,such as Oculus, and Hush, was exciting.

Other than that, not much was known about the sequel, until yesterday when the poster and synopsis were revealed, and we learned that the sequel is actually a prequel.

The official synopsis released by universal Studio’s reads

 In 1965 Los Angeles, a widowed mother and her two daughters add a new stunt to bolster their séance scam business and unwittingly invite authentic evil into their home. When the youngest daughter is overtaken by the merciless spirit, this small family confronts unthinkable fears to save her and send her possessor back to the other side.

The poster gives us a glimpse at this youngest daughter.


That’s not all the new information we got about this movie either. The trailer finally premiered today! I for one, am glad it was finally released because I got to see it a week ago before my advanced screening of The Purge Anarchy, but had no one to share my excitement with, but now I do. In the trailer below you’ll get to see some familiar faces, like Elizabeth Reaser as the mother, Annalise Basso (Oculus), Parker Mack (The Darkness), and Lin Shaye who is returning to the series. It turns out that that the family the film follows is hers that we learned about in the first movie.

Ouija Origin of Evil is set to premiere October 21, 2016. Just in time for you to see it for Halloween.


About Morgan Jewel Sawan 84 Articles
Graduate from Oregon State University, with a Bachelor's of Science in Liberal Studies, a self made degree plan, that focused on media, writing, film, and women, gender and sexuality studies, aptly titled "Writing for and about film with a feminist perspective". I inherited my love of halloween and horror movies from my mom. My favorite horror movie is Scream, which is highly ironic considering I was deathly afraid of Ghostface, who I had very vivid nightmares about that I still remember perfectly, as a child. Some of my other favorites are Hereditary, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Beetlejuice, The Shining, The Conjuring, and much more! Even though I’ve pretty much been a life long fan of horror I still have a lot of catching up to do when it comes to the classics, ergo my Millennial Morgan Plays Catch Up reviews, which I plan to bring back soon. My passion project for the site is our digital zine, called Fright Like A Girl that's all about women in horror, made by women who love horror! In my free time, besides writing for the site, and working on my dream of becoming an actress and film maker, I enjoy making youtube videos (MJ Sawan on youtube), playing video games, going to conventions like Texas Frightmare, and Horror Hound, and cosplaying! I've cosplayed as Nancy Thompson from A Nightmare On Elm Street, Ripley from Aliens, and more. You can follow me on twitter, @frightlikeagirl, where I tweet A LOT about movies of all types, and the people in them.
