When ITN Distribution and Millman Productions released the first photos from their supernatural thriller Ouija House, I joked about the film’s obnoxiously stupid title. Well, the joke’s on me. We got our hands on the first trailer for the haunter that stars Tara Reid (Sharknado), Mischa Barton (The Sixth Sense), and Dee Wallace (Cujo, The Howling, E.T.), and it looks pretty great. No, really! It’s sort of a shame that it reveals that the house is, yes, an actual Ouija board, but they do some other cool stuff like create a board on someone’s stomach. While this looks insanely indie, it appears to be quite creative and I like that.
Ouija House concerns a graduate student who, trying to finish the last of her research on a book project she hopes will help her down-on-her-luck mother, brings friends to a house with a dark past, where they soon unwittingly summon an evil entity who makes the house part of its game.
Ben Demaree (Hansel vs. Gretel) directs from a screenplay by Justin Hawkins and Jeff Miller, based on a story by Miller.
In addition to Reid, Barton, and Wallace, the film also stars Carly Schroeder, Chris Mulkey, Mark Grossman, Grace Demarco, and Derrick A. King, with appearances by scream queens Tiffany Shepis, Eva Hamilton, Sarah French, and Susan Slaughter.
Stuart Alson of ITN, David Coppa, Felix McNulty, Tom Hillery, and Ray Young are other Executive Producers. Dylan Matlock, Tom Nagel, and Carly Schroeder are Co-Producers. Maytal Mizrahi is Associate Producer.
