The Ouija Experiment (2011)
This is a documentary style movie. To be honest I am not a big fan of this production style. It is over used in the horror genre.
This movie started out slow but luckily the characters started playing with the Ouija board in the first 10 or so minutes and the weirdness (not terror) ensued. I had high hopes the movie would get better at this point but was disappointed with how the writers painfully drug out the boredom.
Nothing really happening until about the 50 minute mark. After that the movie got a little interesting, causing me to jump a few times with the use of standard scare tactics, as the ghosts interacted with the characters.
The spirit’s story did not improve the plot at all when the sinister truth is revealed surrounding their deaths. In fact, it made this already ridiculous movie worse. I didn’t think it was possible but they achieved it.
For some reason the writers had to make it evolve around the characters birthdays correlating with the deaths instead of just leaving it at the spirits died in the house they used the Ouija board in. I still can’t figure out why. If you have watched this movie, or are brave enough to do so after this review, and can explain please do.
I didn’t care for the characters at all! The characters felt very shallow and under developed throughout the whole movie. The couple arguing the whole time was very annoying. SPOILER: I was glad when this couple died to be honest. I just wish the deaths made up for their terrible dynamic.
The acting was terrible by all actors involved. It reminded me of student projects I was involved with in high school. I will admit that they didn’t have much to work with between the plot and dialogue lacking.
I don’t recommend this movie at all. Just don’t even waste your time.
Remember this Halloween, the Rules of the Ouija board:
1. Always take it serious because it is not a game.
2. Always say good-bye at the end.
3. Never use the Ouija board in your own home.
Is this a drinking movie? You might as well get so drunk before watching it that you black out and don’t recall subjecting yourself to this painful movie.
