This week’s feature attraction at the Lamoni Coliseum is Ouija: Origin of Evil. Inviting audiences again into the lore of the spirit board, Ouija: Origin of Evil tells a terrifying new tale as the follow-up to 2014’s sleeper hit that opened at number one. In 1967 Los Angeles, a widowed mother, Alice Zander (Elizabeth Reaser), and her two daughters add a new stunt to bolster their séance scam business and unwittingly invite authentic evil into their home. When youngest daughter Doris (Lulu Wilson) is overtaken by the merciless spirit, this small family confronts unthinkable fears to save her and send her possessor back to the other side. Mike Flanagan directs from a screenplay he wrote with his Oculus and Before I Wake collaborator, Jeff Howard.
Critic Comments: “Ouija: Origin of Evil is deliciously creepy ….” (The New York Times) “The rare horror sequel made with considerably more wit, craft, and imagination than its predecessor …” (Variety) “Unlike too many horror directors, Flanagan understands the role of restraint in generating dread.” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) “The director, Mike Flanagan, who with Jeff Howard also wrote the script, demonstrates rare patience for horror fare as he builds toward the macabre.” (The New York Times) “Equal parts horror masterclass and internal home-invasion thriller, Ouija is as chilling and nerve-racking as they come. It’s a sort of cinematic heart attack — irreparably damaging to the body and mind, with a slow recovery time.” (TheWrap)
