This 2011 supernatural horror [aka: The Ouija Experiment] sees four individuals brought together to use a Ouija board, while a fifth, Brandon tries to film it all. Not taking things seriously, the board soon reveals hidden things about the protagonists which causes tensions and confrontations which ultimately lead to mistakes being made, but exactly what is the danger of the Ouija and what is it’s secret?
Filmed through the lens of a hand held camera, this pretends to be based on a true story to gain effect [lose a *] and while this may not be the most original plot, the main problem is the film is made by people who ‘play’ with the supernatural to make a movie but have no ‘feel’ for the subject and make basic errors [lose a *], thus creating trite characters who all act like spoilt 10 year olds [lose a *]. As a result we simply don’t care about them which weakens the fear factor. The sequences focusing on the board thus fail to convince as the characters lack any connection to it and the plot soon devolves into a simple cheating love triangle exposé. It’s only halfway in that this really picks up but the juvenile antics and dialogue really let it down.
The single disc features only play and scene selection. Rated 15 this does have some good things going for it such as the ‘growling’ of the entity and a few ‘jumpy’ scenes, whilst much of the tension relies on the camera picking up sudden indistinct movements which works well in this genre [gain a*] where gore soaked mayhem would have been misplaced. Filmed on a very low budget [allegedly $1,200] it’s a good effort [gain a *] while the revelation toward the end is a clever twist but it’s let down by the obvious ending. Despite the many faults, this is entertaining and for a 15 rating is well worth a try.

Five people experiment with a ouija board and don't follow the rules that they are advised will keep them safe. The result is all sorts of mayhem and the uncovering of a story none of them was aware of.

Firstly, you have to be prepared to watch a found footage film and like this type of thing. If you don't, don't bother. This film is shot in dark locations with lots of shake and is light on picture definition. But in the story department this film excels. We do get a half-decent introduction to the characters and the story is built logically with the accompanying building of tension. But although this is a story about spirits on-the-loose, it also cleverly provides the back story of the spirits, then draws it all together skillfully for an ending that you might not have predicted.

Some of the acting is good but one of the characters is very weak, however the strength of the story lets me forgive this.

And if you like to see the entities you do get to see them in the film (this isn't always the case in low budget supernatural horror). There are also a few scares thrown in which work reasonably well.

supposed to be a true story.calvin,chaye,michael,brandon and the camera man.decide to play with the ouji board,not knowing the consequences.as they are hoping to talk and think its just fun,then for get to SAY GOODBYE,to stop evil getting through the doorway they opened.as one does and things start to go wrong.one couple leave followed shortly fter by the othercouple.after a couple of days they all come back to use the board.
they keep forgetting to SAY GOODBYE,to the spirits (ghosts) to any child thinking of playing this.as they don't say goodbye to the spirit on the board at the end of the séance (talk).they all get haunted in their own apartments,calvin I killed by the evil spirit,a child is heard laughing in all thei homes and a growling noise.and a childis seen playing too as the story unfolds.to children that play this game these boards are evil,only people with knowledge should be in charge as you use one as evil is ALWAYS waiting to get out.a god film,recommend...........warning;dont by from dvds r us as they make slanderouse remarks to you

Decent found footage style film where most of the characters are kinda likeable, the decide to use a spirit board for some reason, that inevitably leads to disaster, all caught on camera.
Really its what u expect ive seen it 3 times now and cant really remember it. What I can remember is enjoying spooky ghost bits, that have escaped to our realm. Its a decent but not great. 6.5/10

Although I liked it I was a bit disappointed in this film. It's not too bad but I was expecting more, but will still have you on the edge of your seat.
