Sometimes, the most terrifying experiences come from childhood games. One such case is that of the Ouija board - a board game designed for communicating with the dead. Debbie (Shelley Hennig) choses to stay in one night and not go out on the town with her friends. While at home, she discovers a mysterious Ouija board in an upstairs room and is later found dead. Her friends decide that, as they miss her, they want to contact her in the afterlife via an Ouija board that they also discover. After making a connection with the afterlife, the friends soon realise that the board is linked to them and bringing them into conflict with an old spectre that seems hell-bent on tormenting them. The Ouija board is not a game for them anymore - it is a newfound level of ultimate terror.

You don't need a ouija board to join this horror movie's 'social séance'.
In what could be one of the most unique interactive ideas for a horror movie yet, Kendall Schmidt will take part in a 'social séance' on October 10th alongside a special screening of upcoming ghost flick 'Ouija'.
(L-R) Douglas Smith, Olivia Cooke and Ana Coto star in 'Ouija'
From the producers of 'Paranormal Activity' and 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', and starring Olivia Cooke from 'Bates Motel', 'The Secret Life of the American Teenager' actor Daren Kagasoff and up-and-coming star Ana Coto, the movie is set in a spooky old house where a girl is killed after apparently awakening a malevolent spirit when she stumbled across a lost ouija board. In a bid to make contact once again, her beloved sister decides to set up a séance with their friends using the same spirit board. However, it soon becomes clear that this chilling game is a lot more real (and dangerous) than they could ever have anticipated. The film serves as the directorial debut of Stiles White, who co-wrote the screenplay alongside Juliet Snowden, with whom he previously worked on 'The Possession' and 'Knowing'.
Fifty years ago, the students of a small Massachusetts school buried a time capsule filled with their drawings of the future. In 2009, it's opened, and what's inside will change the fate of MIT Professor John Koestler (Cage), his son Caleb (Chandler Canterbury), and the actual world as we know it. Seems the boy gets a weird list of numbers, scribbled by a troubled child five decades ago. Now, Koestler sees a pattern in the randomness -- they appear to be predicting cataclysmic events, providing the date and the actual number of casualties. Luckily, most of the tragedies have already occurred. Unfortunately, there are three remaining. With the help of Diana Wayland (Rose Byrne) and her daughter Abby (Lara Robinson), our hero will try to understand the omens before life as we "know" it no longer exists.

This Boogeyman's favorite victim is Tim (Barry Watson), and a childhood encounter leaves Tim's dad dead -- but Tim, somewhat inexplicably, still alive. Years later, Tim is living in "the city" (very similar to "a city") terrified of closets and the dark, though surprisingly at ease with an insufferable and oblivious girlfriend Jessica (Tory Mussett). When a family tragedy brings Tim home again, he must confront his frighteningly literal demons. He also gets to spend some quality time with childhood love Kate (Emily Deschanel).
