OUIJA is a US horror about teenagers who find an old Ouija board and use it to try to make contact with a dead friend.

Threat

There is strong horror and sustained threat, of a physical and psychological nature, as characters use the Ouija board and are terrorised by spirits. There is sight of a young girl whose lips have been sewn together, a girl who gets caught up in electric lights and is seen hanging from the ceiling, and a character who becomes possessed as her eyes go white and her head hits a bathroom sink. Several other characters are possessed or chased by spirits and there is threat from a female spirit with a disfigured face.

There is use of moderate and mild bad language ('bitch' and 'shit'), as well as a use of discriminatory language when a girl calls her friend a 'spaz'.
