The Trailer for Ouija Is Here and It’s Terrifying

The Hasbro game is getting its own horror movie

Are you ready to be terrified? If the answer is a resounding yes, then check out the trailer for the upcoming horror film Ouija.

The film is the latest in a rash of Hasbro-board-game-to-big-screen adaptations, though from the looks of the trailer, Ouija will have a decidedly different tone from Battleship, even the Transformers films. The movie stars Olivia Cooke, Daren Kagasoff, Douglas Smith and Bianca A. Santos as a group of friends who use the board to connect with their dead friend. With a team of producers who’ve collectively worked on certifiably chilling films like Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Unborn, The Purge, Friday the 13th and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the film is almost certain to be horrifying.

Of course, this isn’t the first time that Ouija has appeared in a horror movie — the board had key roles in The Exorcist and the Paranormal Activity films. But with the Oct. 24 release of Ouija, the terrifying, seance-conducting game will be getting the starring role it deserves.
