Get your popcorn ready. It’s time for a scary movie! But did you know that, despite the box office success of this genre, only half of us confess to enjoying horror movies?
If that’s you, read on. One of the most popular props in spooky movies is the Ouija board. So we’ve put together this definitive list of the best scary ouija board movies for you to download for your next horror film night with friends.
Let’s start with the classics. And what creepy spirit-based movie list is complete without at least one mention of The Exorcist? This movie, released in 1973, caused such a stir that some people fainted in the cinema.
The Exorcist writer based the tale on a real-life story from Maryland of a boy possessed by evil spirits after dabbling with his aunt’s ouija board. After the controversy of the film, ouija board sales skyrocketed.
Are you brave enough to rewatch one of the best horror movies in history on your next movie night? Why not grab Ouija Board: The Creepy Game to add to the atmosphere?
What Lies Beneath
This oft-forgotten film at the turn of the century is well worth a watch for the slow-creeping terror.
Starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Harrison Ford, and directed by Robert Zemeckis, the story starts with a couple using an ouija talking board to find out what’s haunting the female protagonist, Claire, in their beautiful lakeside house.
This edge-of-your-seat film will leave you guessing until the end.
Paranormal Activity was one of the surprise hits of 2007. That’s probably due to the creepy wobbly-camera trailer that scared so many of us back then (but made this film irresistible).
Paranormal Activity plots the experience of an ordinary suburban couple who find increasingly strange and unexplained things happening in their home.
The ouija board makes a memorable appearance in the movie after the couple leaves the room.
Yes, there’s a film so famous for using an Ouija board that it’s part of the movie title!
In Oujia, teenage girls attempt to contact their dead best friend, Debbie. However, another presence connects with them via the board, and the girls slowly discover, to their horror, that it’s not Debbie.
The Conjuring 2
The conjuring 2 may be a recent film, but it’s set during the class 70s era so familiar for horror movies, giving it an authentic, hide-behind-the-cushion scary movie feel.
Like the Exorcist, this movie also features a possessed daughter. The family soon finds themselves fighting the demonic forces that occupy the girl and their home.
