_YesYes: UnOriginal of Evil_ is a **much**, much better film than its predecessor, Ouija. But, seeing as the first _Ouija_ was far and away the worst film of 2014, that's not much of an achievement. _Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
**So this is where it all began!** It is a decent horror film, but surely better than the first. The previous part was an usual teen themed horror where everything started as a playful. But this one was a prequel and it focused on the origins. A single mother with two daughters is making money helping the people who want to contact their beloved dead ones. The things changes when her little daughter started to communicate the spirits of her own. The chaos unleashes, the house becomes haunted and the family begins to fall apart. Keeping it simple is what worked out well for the film, despite thematically borrowed from others, scenes were kind of familiar and characters intentionally developed. Particularly the priest role was the most overused in any horror film. Followed by the twist. That turning point was good, but not a new. Nice performances and well shot film. Ouija is a fine concept for a horror theme and with this film's somewhat success, I hope the next one would only get better. So it is worth a watch, if you're not anticipating a something special. _6/10_
