Director Reveals Hidden Connection Between ‘Oculus’ and ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’

Was it the board or was it… the mirror?

One of the big reasons Ouija: Origin of Evil was so superior to the 2014 film is because it was directed by Mike Flanagan, who has become a force to reckoned with thanks to films like Absentia, Oculus, and Hush. Flanagan is one of the most exciting directors working in horror today, and he just revealed a fun connection between his latest film and earlier work.

Over on Twitter, @FlanaganFilm spilled the beans about an Easter egg placed in the basement of the Zander home in Ouija: Origin of Evil, and though it’s likely nothing more than an homage, it’s nevertheless fun to imagine the implications of it. Remember the possessed Lasser Glass from Oculus? Yup, it shows up in the Ouija prequel.

Flanagan tweeted:

A few people have asked… the answer is yes, that IS the Lasser Glass in the basement in Ouija: Origin of Evil.

Tweeting with our own @TracedThurman, Flanagan even hinted that it was perhaps the mirror that resulted in so much horror being invited into the Zander home, rather than the actual Ouija board. Surely he was just having some fun and not being serious, but again, it’s at least fun to pretend that the Ouija and Oculus franchises exist in the same universe.

So keep your eyes peeled next time you watch Ouija: Origin of Evil!

    I could easily see these being in the same universe. I haven’t seen either Ouija movie yet, but I can tell by the trailers alone that the second one looks better.

      It was. FAR better.

    I’m gonna trust everyone and watch Ouija 2… Even more if it has a connection to one of my favorite contemporary horror movies. 😀

    Mike Flanagan is an excellent director and he clearly showed his talent in this creepy horror film, the performances were great and the visuals were pretty well done, I actually liked the third act I don’t know why many people complained about it.
