The movies starts off really well. The acting is good and the story line is initially captivating. Half way through the movie it's seems like everything goes downhill, the story gets more and more far fetched, the acting starts to get hokie, it's like the director got to a point where he rushed to the end as fast as possible without regards to the viewer. It could have been done so much better.
Far superior to the previous film, it's unfortunately let down by the nature of being a prequel; we know where the pieces are all going to end up which takes away much of the tension.
I most certainly enjoyed this one. Terrifying as it is beautiful. Top notch!!
Very good Horror movies recommended!!!
Much better than the first film, more of a storyline to it. The actresses are good, especially the girl who plays Doris (who is also one of the stars of the most recent Annabelle film!)
Good movie. Nothing new but still good. The movie has its moments. Btw I strongly suggest watching this one prior to Ouija (2014) which would make the latter one even more interesting. Go for it. 7/10
This is a pretty good one compared to the first movie and i really wonder why this one wasnt the start of this ouija series. It gave off a feeling like conjuring.
Started off ok, but ended up relying entirely on the same few (weak) jump scares, possession tropes and massive plot holes. Weak acting and writing. Decent direction and cinematography.The more you think about this movie, the less sense it makes.
A lot of the "scares" involved CGI that just looked hilarious.
A good movie fun to watch..Nothing more nothing less!
ONE OF THE BEST HORROR FILMS OF 2016
The first movie was garbage, so this movie didn't have to do much to be an improvement. It's better, certainly, but no classic in the horror genre. Still, if anything, the film acts as another reminder to anybody the least bit tempted... don't mess with ouija boards, evil exists, and it shouldn't be messed with! Stick to Monopoly, seriously!
This is a well crafted supernatural horror flick, with some fantastic cinematography that loses its way slightly in the end. Could this be because of the fact it's a prequel? I haven't seen the first one so I'm not so sure?
Excellent! No jump scare at all (THANK GOD!) it gave me a chill down my spine, sometimes.The plot is great, the acting is great too. the length of the movie it is precise, the movie flows naturally AND FINALLY some "smart" people on a horror movie: the older sister suggest that they "split" to search for the demon girl it's wrong (almost stupid)nothing to complain in this first run. on a second watch, maybe I catch one or two "slips".
Nada mal si señor, para pasar un buen rato dando saltos en el sofá, la interpretación de Lulu Wilson es espectacular, que miradas echa la criatura. No se puede decir que sea de lo mejor del género pero si es suficiente para pasar un buen rato. Todo hay que decirlo y esta noche me ha hecho mirar varias veces a la esquina oscura de la habitación. Un 6 un poquito exigente pero es que soy un amante de este género y hay mucho bueno donde poder elegir. ( Sígueme en Twitter @Lexord si quieres estar al día de mis comentarios )
Origin of Evil is certainly a clever movie. I'm half-convinced that in the case of generically circumscribed horror films, that's all one can hope for. Let's review what this film gets right. First, it upsets the entire look of the horror film. The lighting throughout this movie is tremendous. And significant because it builds tension and delivers scares, even in daylight! The masterful casting of shadows and the not-quite-right yellow shade of the light within the confines of the house blew me away. Furthermore, it delivers scares in at least one unconventional way. The young daughter's monologue about strangulation is a sight to behold. Her delivery is ferocious and the sensation in the viewer is utter terror. There's no unsettling imagery or ambient sound that accompanies this hybrid scare and tension builder. The plot does unfold far too quickly leading into and through the climax. And the film gives up a couple great ending scenes in exchange for one last cheap scare. But, ultimately, this is a thoroughly enjoyable film. It might even be deserving of more analysis! After all, the repetition of the disappearing and sewn-shut mouth as an image and plot point is a fascinating one. This film gets a solid recommendation from me.
I didn't enjoy it. i didn't feel the tense and the horror. Very light
This was such a surprise. I haven't even seen the first Ouija movie because of all the terrible reviews and this prequel is very solid. There are a few clichés but the characters are built up enough that it keeps you engaged for the whole runtime. There are a few scary moments but I really appreciate the direction.
Surprisingly more terrifying and insane than both Conjuring films.
I was going to review this movie on IMDB but you have to write at least 1000 words & i can't write 1000 words about this movie because although its not the worst paranormal/horror ive seen its not the best by a long long way but theres 1 thing that really got up my nose about this movie & its when the elder sisters boyfriend hangs himself right in front of her she was upset for all of 20 seconds & then even made a joke of them all splitting up!
We i try to stream this movie it is not the new Ouija movie at all.
