The UK Summons Demons Via Ouija Board
While we continue to spin our wheels here in the States waiting for the "family adventure" that will be Ouija, based upon the Hasbro game which lets you contact the dead, our friends across the pond have a far more appropriate and sinister usage for the talking board cooking.
We've got a still and some early artwork for Ouija, written and directed by indie filmmaker Darren Lynch and starring Jessica Gaucher-Thompson, Conner Lynch, Ekua Ghansah, Mark Heap, and Roxy Freeman.
"Ouija is something different than any other horror; firstly there isn't a film about a Ouija board that has ever been a huge success," says director Lynch. "Until now. This film has everything a horror fanatic is looking for. Scare factors, gore, lots of jumpy bits, and of course ... a great storyline. I was inspired by the Ouija board to write this story. I have done a few in my time but never come across anything spooky. But I have been told not to mess with the arts of Ouija so I wrote this story in other people's eyes, how they have come across evil on the board."
Lynch continues, "We have finished filming now after a hard working 5 weeks, and the film has now gone into post-production. The film is looking really good. We have been filming in a woods around the area of Shelton Lock in Derby. I am aiming for cinema release on this one next Halloween."
Look for more soon. In the interim you can listen to a radio interview with Lynch and a couple of the movie's stars, Ekua Ghansah and Mark Heap, below via YouTube.
Ouija is centered around 9 friends who go out for the night in the woods, drinking and smoking. One of them decides to bring along the Ouija board, summoning a demon that then begins to stalk the camp, killing them one by one.
