Of course, with such an obvious title like "Ouija" - I'll bet you could never guess what this little tale of terror is gonna be about. Never.

And, because "Ouija" has a PG-13 rating you can be sure that both its level of horror and its visuals of gore are gonna be toned down, big-time.

And, you can also be sure that (as the story progresses) there's never gonna be any good that ever comes out of playing with an Ouija Board. Never. (even if it's strictly for laughs)

Yes. "Ouija" did have some good production values. And, yes, there were some fairly eerie moments, throughout.

But, overall - Ouija's suspense-factor was sustained for far too long which reduced its story to a purely predictable level that (ho-hum!) ended on one of the most cliched notes imaginable.

Ouija is definitely a horror movie. It has some really good intense scenes and may even push you out of your seat. This is not recommended for children!

Did NOT care much for this film. The first 1/2 hr was alright then it felt fake & boring after that: a lesser copy-cat, version of the great 'Exorcist' film in ideology and scope. Many films in this past decade and genre, have or are copying the Exorcist theme and style of filming. One good mimic that does some justice was - "The Conjuring", which was worth watching and gave it some justice.
