24 Jun – Universal Pictures has announced the official title as well as the confirmed release date for the upcoming "Ouija" prequel, which was previously titled as "Ouija 2".
Now officially called "Ouija: Origin of Evil", the prequel will hit the cinemas in North America on 21 October 2016.
The story follows a widowed mother and her two daughters who decide to add a new stunt to boost their séance scam business, but everything goes awry when they unknowingly invite an evil spirit into their home.
Even when produced on a small budget, most good horror movies tend to make money at the box office, making horror a profitable genre in the movie industry, as proven by recent successful box office hits like "Conjuring", "Annabelle", and "The Conjuring 2".
Even the first "Ouija" film is a huge success as it managed to garner over USD103 million on a USD5 million budget.
"Ouija: Origin of Evil" is directed by Mike Flanagan, starring Elizabeth Reaser, Annalise Basso, Lulu Wilson, Henry Thomas, and Parker Mack.
