A fun filled weekend turns deadly when a group of unsuspecting theater goers is trapped inside after a ravenous spirit is resurrected and released from an ouija board. They must confront their most terrifying fears and destroy the spirit before it finds and kills them first.
The Ouija Resurrection is actually The Ouija Experiment 2 and they toss both those titles on the box perhaps making it on the longer titles for a movie you’ll find out there right now. I liked The Ouija Experiment enough. I believe it had good characters even if the found footage stuff was a little played out. Here we have that movie being just that, a movie. The movie is being shown at a place haunted and this leaves the door open for some of the older cast to return as themselves, but we also have new people added to the mix as well. This one is played off in the traditional movie form but it hampered up by some very bad performances and some even worse CGI moments. The people coming back from the first movie are by far the best part of this, but the new faces, new elements, and effects do not do this one any favors at all. It also doesn’t help when the plot fails to make the most sense. The first film had an okay plot. We get a bit of a mess here.
Originally titled The Ouija Experiment 2: Theatre of Death, the movie does offer up some funny moments above all else from time to time. This almost always seems to come involving characters from the first film. More of them and less of everyone else would have probably made this one better, but it would have had to do something with that bad CGI to have fully got my seal of approval. The plot offers up some twists and turns with the whole Ouija angle just being here for the sake of being there more or less. All in all, it doesn’t make it to the level of The Ouija Experiment and that’s a shame because you can tell the original cast was willing to make it as good as they could. Everything else is either played too straight to just doesn’t really make the most sense. Still, if you want to dive into these Ouija movies that are out there you’ll soon see you could do much worse. It does go for a few scenes that are takes on other popular horror movie moments. Those are nice to spot.
