The new Geico commercial stresses that people in horror movies make dumb decisions, because it’s what they do. Well, “Ouija” seems to make every possible attempt to prove that wrong.

The movie is about a girl named Laine, who mysteriously loses her best friend in an apparent suicide, but is suspicious when she can “feel” her presence. Of course, she takes initiative to communicate to her friend with a Ouija board, but in the process, unravels a frightening backstory to her home and falls victim to a great plot twist.

The movie was better than most horror movies, limiting the cliché moments of ill-timed curiosity and a plot easy to anticipate and predict. It contained incredibly fluid graphics and humorous moments of false paranormal activity. The movie did overshoot with its musical background and had holes in its plot.

I would give “Ouija” three stars out of five. The movie is suitable for young teenagers and older.

If you’re looking for an engaging adventure, this is not your movie. But it is certainly an enjoyable ride with a few friends looking for a couple casual laughs, scares, and easy-to-follow entertainment.
