The synopsis from IMDb reads In 1965 Los Angeles, a widowed mother and her two daughters add a new stunt to bolster their seance scam business and unwittingly invite authentic evil into their home. When the youngest daughter is overtaken by a merciless spirit, the family confronts unthinkable fears to save her and send her possessor back to the other side.
Doris is the youngest daughter and watching her transform from a lovable and innocent little girl to a monster filled with evil was frightening. It also made me wonder why the mother didn't step in sooner, she had see what was happening to her daughter. The elder daughter, Lina, is trying to have a normal teenage life when both her mother and sister start believing that the death father/husband is talking to them through the Ouija board. Now the Ouija board is not in itself evil, no one follows the rules of the game. They don't say goodbye to close the door, they do play alone, and they do play in a graveyard.
I really enjoyed how this movie stayed in the story built in the first movie, and this really did outshine the first movie. There were more frightening moments in this movie, one especially poignant one when Doris is attacked by a spirit who wants to use her abilities for itself. Another moment, which is frightening and eerie in it's simplicity, involves Doris and Lina's soon to be boyfriend. It is a scene you will remember even at the end of the book.
The ending is predictable, especially if you have seen the original movie, but it was still pretty well done. I would have liked a little more back story on the house and the spiritual inhabitants, but overall this was not a bad movie at all.
