OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL is a horror about a widowed woman and her two young daughters whose psychic reading business takes a turn when they acquire a Ouija board.

Threat

There is a strong sense of foreboding and supernatural threat throughout. Characters attempt to make contact with the spirits of dead people and a child character becomes possessed by a malevolent spirit. Images of horror include: black demon monsters with fiery eyes; a hanging; bloody injury detail; and characters' mouth being sewn up and sealed.

There are scenes of violence and use of weapons, including knives, hooks and a slingshot.

There is some use of moderate bad language ('bitch') as well as milder bad language ('crap', 'asshole', 'hell').
