Given Hasbro’s track record of making consistently cruddy movies out of their product line, low expectations are in order for this prequel to the wildly successful but insipid 2014 adaptation of their classic board game. But the toy giant handing the franchise keys over to Mike Flanagan is probably the most creatively sound decision they’ve made yet.

The rare horror sequel made with considerably more wit, craft, and imagination than its predecessor, "Ouija: Origin of Evil" feels less like the continuation of a budding franchise than an apology for what went wrong the first time.

Deliciously creepy, thanks largely to a terrific performance by the youngest of its stars.

Perhaps only the most lukewarm slumber party would truly need it. Yet if you were to ask whether Origin of Evil offers a better quality of timewasting than its predecessor, my finger would hover inexorably over YES.

It's unlikely to have you looking over your shoulder as you walk to your car on the way home, but it may well sell a few Ouija boards to teenagers intent on giving themselves a scare.

An entertaining and creepy ghost story that just might scratch that seasonal itch.

Both Reaser and Thomas provide unexpected depths to what could have been schematic roles, and the younger performers are even better.
