In Ouija, a group of friends must confront their most terrifying fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board. Stiles White directs the supernatural thriller that is produced by Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller (The Purge, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th) alongside Blumhouse Productions' Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity and Insidious series, The Purge), Bennett Schneir (Battleship) and Hasbro. Juliet Snowden and Stiles White wrote the script for Ouija, and Universal will distribute the film worldwide.

About the Film

"Yes." "No." "Goodbye." These words that are printed on a classic Ouija board seem so innocent.

This Halloween, find out what happens when a deadly presence refuses to say "Goodbye."

Platinum Dunes partners MICHAEL BAY (Transformers franchise, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Pain & Gain), BRAD FULLER (The Purge series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, A Nightmare on Elm Street) and ANDREW FORM (The Purge series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) join Blumhouse Productions' JASON BLUM (Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Insidious series) and producer BENNETT SCHNEIR (Battleship, upcoming Jem and the Holograms) to bring to the screen Ouija, a supernatural thriller in which a group of friends must confront their most terrifying fears when they unwittingly make contact with a dark power from the other side.

What started as a game will unleash an evil only they can stop.

After Laine's (OLIVIA COOKE of TV's Bates Motel) childhood friend, Debbie (SHELLEY HENNIG of TV's Teen Wolf ), suddenly dies, Laine, alongside Debbie's boyfriend, Pete (DOUGLAS SMITH of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), discovers an antique Ouija board in Debbie's room and tries to use it to say "Goodbye" to her best friend.

When the curious teen begins asking questions and stumbles upon the mystery of Debbie's death, Laine discovers that the board's resident spirit calls itself DZ and doesn't want these sessions to end.

As stranger and stranger things start happening, Laine enlists her younger sister, Sarah (ANA COTO of TV's DISconnected), to fall down the rabbit hole alongside her and help discover who DZ is and what it wants from them. Joining the sisters in their dangerous game are Laine's friend Isabelle (BIANCA SANTOS of TV's The Fosters) and Laine's boyfriend, Trevor (DAREN KAGASOFF of TV's The Secret Life of the American Teenager).

As the five friends dig deeper into the history of Debbie's house, they find that Debbie wasn't the first victim and won't be the last. And if they don't figure out how to close the portal they've opened, they will meet the same fate as the friend who introduced them to the game...

STILES WHITE (writer of The Possession, Knowing) makes his directorial debut with the supernatural thriller that is written by White and JULIET SNOWDEN (The Possession, Knowing). Joining their talented creative team are director of photography DAVID EMMERICHS (X-Men: First Class, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), product ion designer BARRY ROBISON (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Wedding Crashers), costume designer MARY JANE FORT (TV's Do No Harm, Shark) and editor KEN BLACKWELL (The Cell, The Expendables). The music is composed by ANTON SANKO (The Possession, upcoming Visions), and Academy Award® nominee MIKE SMITHSON (Avatar, Thor: The Dark World) provides the special-effects makeup for the dark spirit who has been waiting for years to be discovered.

Ouija is executive produced by Snowden, COUPER SAMUELSON (upcoming The Boy Next Door), JEANETTE VOLTURNO-BRILL (The Purge) and Hasbro's BRIAN GOLDNER (Transformers franchise) and STEPHEN DAVIS (upcoming Jem and the Holograms).
