A college girl with mommy issues. A creepy old house in the woods. A hidden room containing a Ouija board. All of these elements are found in Ouija Séance: The Final Game.
In Ouija Séance: The Final Game, Sarah (Katharina Sporrer) is a college art student finishing up her last semester studying in Italy. There is some foreshadowing implying she has issues with her mother… Sarah’s restoration on a painting of a mother and child and her intense staring at a mother and child pass her on the street.
Sarah is eager to go on a last adventure with her friends before she heads back to the United States, but it is disclosed that she is in the process of selling a home that she inherited from a maternal grandmother, for whom she has never met and there is a hiccup with the sale that requires her to take paperwork to this old house. She is disappointed that she has to put her plans on hold, but her friends, Barb (Holly Mumford), Rico (Gianfranco Quero), and Guillaume (Alan Cappelli Goetz), agree to ride along with her as she drops off this required paperwork.
When they arrive at the house, they are approached by the caretaker (Andrea Fachinetti) who starts shouting warnings at them, shotgun in hand, telling them to stay out of a particular room of the house. Of course, they don’t, and discover a unique Ouija board, as well as other macabre items in this room. This leads to evil being released, and info on why Sarah’s mother kept her past a secret, eventually taking her own life.
Final Thoughts on Ouija Séance: The Final Game:
I went into this movie thinking, “Really? Another Ouija movie?” I was pleasantly surprised, Director Andrea Mugnaini’s Ouija Séance: The Final Game was actually quite different. The script wasn’t necessarily focused on the Ouija itself, but more on Sarah discovering the evil secrets that her mother tried to keep hidden, as well as her strained relationships with her friends. It works, and overall, I enjoyed the film.
