‘Ouija’ is a 2014 spine-chilling supernatural horror movie that marks Stiles White’s directorial debut. It follows the story of five friends who attempt to communicate with the spirit of their dead friend, Debbie (Shelley Hennig), who allegedly died by suicide. But how far would they go to talk to her? After Debbie’s death, Laine (Olivia Cooke) brings her sister Sarah (Ana Coto) and convinces her friends Trevor (Daren Kagasoff), Isabelle (Bianca Santos), and Pete (Douglas Smith) to perform a séance using an Ouija board.
However, the call made to the other world does not quite reach the person the five friends intend to contact, and they end up unleashing something far more sinister that wants them dead. While the horror and sinister elements of the narrative keep the viewers on the edge of their seats, the backdrop of Debbie’s spooky-looking house is one wonder where ‘Ouija’ was shot.
