Pretending to Contact Spirits Spells Real Evil in Ouija: Origin of Evil

In Ouija: Origin of Evila brand new cast makes up the sequel to the surprise 2014 hit. This time around, we're fifty years prior to the events in the first film, in 1967's Los Angeles, where a widowed mother and her two daughters are using a Ouija board and a whole bunch of tricks to bilk money out of paying customers in their scam seancé business. Naturally, this type of messing around with the occult can't go unpunished, and sure enough, a legitimate spirit enters their house, using the youngest daughter, Doris, as its vessel. Now the family must confront the very real spirits the Ouija board can access, and try to send the evil spirit invading their daughter back to the other side.

Annalise Basso, Henry Thomas, Doug Jones, and Elizabeth Reaser star. Mike Flanagan directs.

Ouija: Origin of Evil hits theaters on October 21.
