Has Hollywood started running out of original ideas???

This came in mind when I saw the trailer for this upcoming horror film:

US trailer

UK/international trailer

Then it came into mind that Universal is releasing a teen-oriented thriller called Ouija just in time for the Halloween season.


Which brings in mind a similar film that was produced and released locally in 2007.  This film (also named Ouija) stars Philippine box-office draws Judy Ann Santos and Jolina Magdangal as unwitting participants in a similar spirit summoning ritual also involving said board.

I am generally dismissive of most horror movies, particularly locally-made ones (in spite of some of our very own talent benefiting from the recent Asian horror boom) but a film that can knock down a Disney/Pixar release like Ratatouille in the local box-office should have to have that special something.

Maybe enough to have Hollywood rip it off???

Attention Star Cinema/Viva Entertainment – better call your lawyers!!!
