First Trailer for ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’ has Dropped

Universal Pictures has officially released the first trailer for it’s upcoming horror prequel Ouija: Origin of Evil, starring Elizabeth Reaser, Henry Thomas, and Doug Jones.

Also starring Parker Mack, Sam Anderson, Kate Siegel, Annalise Basso, and Lulu Wilson, the new film follows a widowed mother and her two daughters who add a new stunt to bolster their seance scam business, only to be faced with something truly evil they’ve only been pretending exists.

Directed by Mike Flanagan, the horror extravaganza arrives October 21st, just in time for Halloween. Check out the Ouija: Origin of Evil trailer after the jump.

I just hope the jump-scariness of the trailer doesn’t translate to the film.
