The ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’ Blu-ray Will Have Tons of Extra Features

The prequel to the horror hit invites audiences again into the lore of the spirit board when Ouija: Original Evil (read our review) arrives on on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on  January 17th, 2017 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

A two movie collection including both the original Ouija and Ouija: Origin of Evil will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on the same date.

“Set 50 years prior to the events that took place in Ouija, director and writer Mike Flanagan (OculusBefore I Wake) tells a terrifying new tale as a grieving spiritualist mother and her young daughters discover the buried dangers of an ancient game. With exclusive bonus content including deleted scenes, a character spotlight, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, and more, Ouija: Origin of Evil delivers spine-tingling chills to viewers.”

In 1967 Los Angeles, Alice (Elizabeth Reaser, The Twilight Series, Young Adult), a widowed mother and her daughters Paulina (Annalise Basso, Captain Fantastic) and Doris (Lulu Wilson, “The Millers”), add a new stunt to bolster their séance scam business when Alice brings home a sinister Ouija board. Breaking a cardinal rule of the game while desiring to communicate with their deceased father, the family inadvertently conjures a malevolent force, unleashing a terror to be reckoned with. As the youngest daughter is overtaken by the merciless spirit, this small family confronts unthinkable fears with the help of a priest (Henry Thomas, E.T The Extraterrestrial) to save her and send her possessor back to the other side.

“Collaborating with Flanagan on Ouija: Origin of Evil are Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Purge series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum (The Purge and Insidious series) alongside Hasbro’s Brian Goldner (Transformers and G.I. Joe series) and Stephen Davis (Ouija), with a screenplay by Flanagan and his writing partner Jeff Howard (OculusBefore I Wake).”

  • Simon Allen

    It sucks .

    • J Jett

      i agree Simon.

      • Simon Allen

        Sad thing is i really like Flanagans other movies including “Before i Wake” but this was so much worse than i imagined ….and my hopes weren’t high.
        Towards the end i just wondered what the hell was supposed to be going on and lost interest completely .

        • J Jett

          Simon, i completely agree. did he write the story/screenplay for OUIJA? the final 20 minutes (once the priest crawls out of the secret room) the entire movie turns to utter crap. oh and i definitely very much liked BEFORE I WAKE too! 🙂

          • Simon Allen

            Yeah he did but there are a few other credits so who knows what happened ?
            Studio interference ? Rewrites ?Temporary talent lapse ?

  • J Jett

    i’m about half way through the film right now and it’s actually pretty decent! i’m enjoying it thus far (although THE CONJURING 2 is much better i think).

    • Private s baldrick

      That’s a shame, I was really looking forward to seeing this. I hate it when an ending ruins what could have been a good film.

      • J Jett

        Private, yeah, IMO the last 20 minutes of the film are a huge mess/disappointment story-wise. i was surprised it turned into such a lame cluster fuck since what came before that final 20 minutes was pretty decent.

    I’m ready for Ouija 3: Dawn Of The Dookie Balls.

  • Maxime C
