Los Angeles, 1965. Over at Chavez Ravine, Vin Scully is calling Dodgers games as the team heads toward a World Series title. But elsewhere in the city, things aren’t so rosy — despite the cheery strains of Herman’s Hermits. A widow and her two daughters add a Ouija board to their scam séance business, and wouldn’t you know, things go south. The younger child is possessed by something of pure evil that makes a Slinky out of her spine. It’s up to Mom and Sis to send that spirit back from whence it came.
Here’s the first trailer for Ouija: Origin of Evil, the freshly retitled sequel to 2014 horror sleeper from Blumhouse Productions based on the creepy board game. The original Ouija was a microbudget hit in 2014, scooping $19.8M in its opening weekend to bow the No. 1 spot and cuming $50.8 million domestically and $100 million worldwide. Mike Flanagan directed the new pic, which he co-wrote with Jeff Howard. It stars Henry Thomas, Elizabeth Reaser, Doug Jones, Parker Mack, Sam Anderson, Kate Siegel, Annalise Basso and Lulu Wilson.
Universal Pictures has carved out a juicy pre-Halloween release for the pic, which will invade theaters October. Check out the trailer above, and tell us what you think.
