The Ouija (2014) Movie Trailer! Finally!

I don’t know how many of you are experiencing the beautiful weather that we’ve been having here in Missouri, but I’ve been desperately trying to find someone with a pumpkin, because this weather almost requires a jack-o-lantern, and you KNOW I love it!

So along with the weather and the fact that The Big Séance Podcast was listed as a “New and Noteworthy” podcast on iTunes this week, what could possibly make things better? The Ouija (2014) movie that I blogged about over a month ago, after having seen the preview in the theatre, has finally released the trailer and poster! Let me say that again… FINALLY!

I don’t know all the details, but the movie seems to have a horrible promotion plan, which has left early fans waiting for a trailer completely frustrated, and the film’s official website seems to continually change, as if constantly “under construction”. The film’s release date has now moved to October 24th, according to the Facebook page (which has had a considerably low number of “likes”). The trailer, which seems to show the old artwork from the website, simply says “Coming Soon”. This morning the official website had the new artwork and stated the film was coming this Halloween, however, if you go to the site at this moment, all the artwork is gone and it’s a blank Blumhouse Productions page that simply says “about the film”.

Will we actually get to see the film in October? Who knows! But I’m excited! My goal is to get into an advanced screening of this film, so stay tuned! The trailer looks great, which is why all their dysfunction surprises me. Surely they have more than 2 people on staff to work on promotion.

 

 


Ouija: A New Movie Coming In October!

 

There’s a new movie about the famous talking board that is due to be released in October! If you’re like me, you’re surprised that you didn’t even know this was a thing. And unless you had a date at a movie theater this last weekend, it’s likely you haven’t seen the trailer, since it hasn’t been released online.

Appropriately named, Ouija was directed by Stiles White and stars Olivia Cooke (who is fantastic in Bates Motel), Ana Coto, Daren Kagasoff (The Secret Life of the American Teenager), Bianca A. Santos, Douglas Smith (Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), Matthew Settle (Gossip Girl), Vivis Colombettie (Paranormal Activity 2, Patch Adams), and Robyn Lively (The Karate Kid, Part III, Teen Witch), according to IMDb.

Hasbro, the owner and manufacturer of the board, has been working since 2008 to get this movie produced, according to Wikipedia. Remember that if you see the film. The Wikipedia page also describes it as a “low-budget film” and mentions that it only started production seven months ago. Currently, the film’s website seems to be… well, a little under construction, and you won’t find much more on their certified Facebook page, either, other than the lovely banner I’ve included above. That, of course, could change by the time you see this.  

I happened to catch the trailer before watching the painfully sad The Fault In Our Stars on Saturday. It did look spooky and exciting. But where’s the trailer online? According to ShockTillYouDrop.com, this is “an unusual move these days”. In this trending social media age, it seems very bizarre to me that they haven’t already made it available for tweens (and nerds like me) all over the country to “like” and “share”. Clearly, the trailer exists. When it is released, I’ll do my best to embed it right below this paragraph. 

UPDATE! The trailer is here and embedded below! Also, check out my most recent post on the film HERE

 
I’m not going to lie, I’m very excited about this movie (duh!), but I have mixed feelings. Most likely, this will once again make “experts” out of people who will say it’s an evil tool. And how will they know? Because they saw this movie, or because they used a Ouija board “one night at a party when I was a kid.” As I’ve mentioned several times recently, over the past two years I’ve experimented off and on with the Ouija board under several different conditions, and it’s so very exciting to stare at a piece of cardboard and a chunk of plastic that does nothing.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Will I see you at the theater?
