This movie starts with the sudden death of Debbie. Debbie's best friend, Laine, finds an antique Ouija board in Debbie's room and tries to use it to say goodbye.This of course isn't what happens, because if it was the movie would have been a lot shorter, yet maybe not as dull. If you know anything about horror movies you already know two things about this one. The first thing is that when someone uses a Ouija board to contact someone (or spirit ball, or video camera and electrical equipment) they never contact the person they are seeking out. The second thing you know is that the living characters will be tormented and killed one by one until the last one either survives by outsmarting the evil spirit, or until the end of the movie where a cliff hanger lets the audience know that it's not over.
Laine is a dull character with one thing on her mind, but the real problem isn't that her grief makes her behave like an idiot, it's that she doesn't care when all of her other friends start dying. There is no grief for anyone but Debbie. The characters are not interesting and honestly I almost wanted them to all die, because none of them did anything to help themselves and they were just so stupid in what they were doing.
The plot of evil in this movie didn't make sense. There was a subplot with a horrible mother/daughter relationship but none of it was explained well enough to make sense. I wouldn't recommend this movie, partly because it just wasn't good, if I don't care about any of the characters why should I care if they live or die? I also don't recommend this movie because it just isn't scary. It relies too much on sudden sounds and people appearing in glass and a fake ghost yelling in a young girls face. Sorry, Ouija just didn't do it for me.
