Horror: Following the apparent suicide death of their friend, a group of high school students try to contact her with a Ouija board, unaware of what they're about to unleash.
High school students Laine Morris (OLIVIA COOKE) and Debbie Galardi (SHELLEY HENNIG) have been friends since they were kids and used to play with Debbie's Ouija board. When Debbie finds another one of those in her attic and then hangs herself in her home, Laine, along with Debbie's boyfriend, Pete (DOUGLAS SMITH), are devastated. Feeling guilty that she didn't stay with her friend the night before, and desperately needing answers, Laine proposes that she, her boyfriend Trevor (DAREN KAGASOFF), her younger sister Sarah (ANA COTO), and their waitress friend Isabelle (BIANCA SANTOS) use the board to try to contact Debbie.

Joined by Pete in Debbie's home that Laine is house-sitting while her grieving family is away, they use the Ouija board and are shocked to see that it apparently works. But they're terrified to learn that rather than having contacted Debbie's spirit, they've connected with another.

After doing some research, Laine ends up visiting Paulina Zander (LIN SHAYE), a long-institutionalized older woman who formerly lived in Debbie's home with her sister and mother. Hearing what they've done, Paulina informs Laine that evil has been released, a point proved by the unexpected deaths of some of those in their small group. From that point on, Laine tries to resolve the matter before it's too late for her and the rest.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
