Spirit beyond the grave

'The Ouija Possession' drew me into seeing it, with a cool poster/cover, an intriguing if not particularly original premise and as someone with a general appreciation for horror. That it was low-budget, which from frequent personal experience is rarely a good sign due to that there are so many poor ones out there, made me though apprehensive as well as the low rating and poor reviews. It is sadly however yet another film seen recently, hence some reiteration because the exact same strengths and flaws those films have are present here, that to me was incredibly disappointing considering its potential which it doesn't do anywhere near enough with. 'The Ouija Possession' is terrible, with a plethora of problems (huge ones too) and doesn't do enough with its potential, which was hardly small. There is really nothing to recommend. 'The Ouija Possession' occasionally has some spooky scenery, though it goes too far on the simplicity. That's all there is that is remotely okay about it. Unfortunately, it's shot and edited so poorly, looking like a school project shot on a shaky camera or a phone by an unsteady hand, and the drab colour palette. It was very clear that the film was made in a rush with no care or enthusiasm. In particular, the camera work was a nauseous assault on the eyes with its excessive amateurish-ness, apparently the budget was less than £150 and that is hardly surprising and comes through loud and clear. Going on further to the negatives, the story does feel paper thin, disjointed and over-stretched and some of it feels vague, under-explained in the last third where the film especially became duller, more predictable, more senseless and less scary. Too many characters are too sketchy and with nowhere near enough to make one want to endear to them. Their annoying and illogical decision making and behaviours frustrates and are overdone. Making the film feel bland and forgettable with not enough heart put into it. The effects are ropy at best, the sound quality is obvious and utilised cheaply (being too loud in the build ups and people's reactions) and it's best not mentioning the uniformly lumbering and histrionic acting that shows a huge indifference to the situation and what is going on and extremely awkward prolonged pauses. Dialogue can be stilted and rambling, with lots of clichés, lots of unintentional humour that makes some of the film play like a really bad spoof and no depth whatsoever, while the pace goes to a standstill very quickly and drags on forever with very little going on worth caring about and useless padding, never recovering. Found too many the supposedly shocking moments not surprising or scary and the supposedly creepy atmosphere dreary, due to the excessive obviousness, a lot of dumb and vague moments and explanations and the lack of tension and suspense. Would not have minded the lack of originality (the film is extremely derivative and in a dumbed and watered down way) if the story and atmosphere were at least alright in execution, in reality they were both incredibly poorly done. A lot of 'The Ouija Possession' has underdeveloped plot elements and often nonsensical and confusing character motivations, while too many of the things to make you jump or shocked are far from creative or scary and are pretty tame. The ending makes the film finish on an incomplete and confused whimper and the film often fails to make sense, at worst it's incomprehensible. There is not enough threat, and what there is of it tends to be used poorly, it is completely unimaginative and more odd than creepy, completely failing to show any sense of horror or creativity. Everything here is neither creative, suspenseful or nail-biting. Some badly sagging momentum too. The direction is leaden and like their heart was not in it or ill at ease, with the chemistry between the characters and actors coming over as constantly random and aggressive with the subtlety of an axe. This is very dreary and amateurish stuff that fails to be scary, interesting or easy to follow. Concluding, a complete and utter mess. 1/10 Bethany Cox

You're moving it

"The Ouija Possession" and "Jonah Lives" are the same film. A group of bored kids playing games in the basement while adults are upstairs having a wild party. They end up raising Jonah from the dead, who was killed by his wife who was apparently Brinke Stevens the lone bright spot of the film and someone with a great agent. Now rather than avenge his death, he decides he must kill all the kids, and none too soon. Unfortunately it dragged out. The kids couldn't act. They had lousy lines. Jonah had irritating swagger music and looked like a rental costume. The horror effects bordered on cheesy. When you re-release a film under a new title, general rule of thumb is that is was lousy. This was filmed in Fall River, Mass. and I believe the large looming cooling towers in the background at the end, are those of Brayton Point Power Station, a coal-fire plant. The description is incorrect. The "wicked cool" Ouija board was not in the basement but upstairs and brought to the basement. Note the picture of Edgar Allan Poe on the wall in the upstairs living room. Why? I don't know. Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity. Film has some sacrilegious moments.

Ouija Rehash

In the credits they said that this film had a budget of 150 pound Euro. I believe it. The graphics are ridiculous. The plot it's just your typical kids are hanging out having a good time one of the friends brings out a Ouija board and gets the others to do it except for one person who says they don't want to do it for reasons. Spirit comes through the board makes them think that it's a good person when it's really not and that takes over. It's your typical story line. There's nothing new and worthwhile at all here. Don't waste your time and effort if you've seen the other Ouija board movies you've already seen this one. Or, there probably much better than this one.
