Ouija (2014)

Episode 8,   May 17, 12:00 PM

Embark on a spectral journey with Movies R Us as we dissect the hauntingly disappointing "Ouija" (2014) 🎲👻 – a film that attempts to turn a childhood game into a conduit for terror, but ends up rolling snake eyes on the scare scale.In this episode, our hosts Desmond, Justin, and Jeremy wrestle with their mixed emotions about a movie that leaves much to be desired. From milky-eyed spirits to unexplained phenomena, the film's lack of rules and logic leaves our trio scratching their heads in confusion rather than shaking in fear.As we navigate the murky plot, we encounter a group of attractive 20-somethings who must confront a malevolent force unleashed by a Ouija board. But with a narrative as flimsy as the game's planchette, the only true horror is the film's wasted potential.

For those who dare to explore the realm of better horror offerings, our hosts share recommendations that promise genuine chills. From the unsettling "The Visit" to the subversive "Don't Breathe," there's hope for fright-seekers yet.Will "Ouija" make contact with your fear factor, or will it be banished back to the board game closet? Tune in to Movies R Us and find out if this film is a ghostly gem or just a spiritless flop.
