    When the director of Oculus, Mike Flanagan, was offered the by-all-accounts useless Ouija franchise, my ears perked up. And indeed, Origin of Evil is a movie that has no business being so enjoyable! Flanagan turns back the clock 60 years to give us a 60s-esque experience (right down to the now useless cigarette burns) with a good creep factor and low jump scare count, some humor, and a very satisfying extrapolation of Ouija lore based on the original edition of the "game". I really loved Elizabeth Reaser's character, a single mom making ends meet with fortune telling, though arguably, her daughters are the real stars. This is a movie with excellent replay value, full of nice details to catch on subsequent viewings, from a directorial interest in door frames to the story's connection to the Apollo program, going through tributes to horror films of the era and the Franco-German origins of the Ouija brand. And if somehow you were a fan of the first one despite its apparent lack of quality, yes, there's a connection... stay until after the credits. 3 years 9 months ago
