As the release date continues to draw nigh, we are seeing a steady stream of promotional material roll in for the upcoming supernatural horror picture Ouija. Another TV spot was just released and we have it for you to check out after the jump. So come inside and have a look.
In Ouija, a group of close friends reeling from the death of one of their comrades attempt to make contact with the other side. Instead of reaching their fallen friend, the group instead gets ahold of a vengeful spirit that wreaks havoc on the lives of those who have awakened it. Check out the latest TV spot below.
The road to the big screen has been a tumultuous one for Ouija. The film was originally slated for a November 2012 release but has been pushed back several times due to budgetary disagreements. The film also went through several potential screenwriters and directors before finally landing the creative team that made the film. Universal was originally planning on a budget of $80 to $100 million but reportedly later became opposed to the high dollar amount the film was going to require to make. After Universal pulled out and the project was thought to be dead in the water, a plan to make the picture on a lower budget was hatched. Blumhouse productions became involved and Universal later re-committed to the film.
This upcoming spirit board horror-thriller is directed by Stiles White. Previously an effects man, Ouija is White’s first time in the director’s chair. In addition to directing, White also co-penned the script with Juliet Snowden (The Possession). Ouija will star Olivia Cooke (The Quiet Ones) and relative newcomers Ana Coto and Daren Kagasoff. It is set to see release October 24, 2014.
