The Bock’s Office: ‘Ouija’ sequel summons spookiness

Nobody thinks of the term “toy movie” as anything other than pejorative, but just because the name Hasbro is attached doesn’t mean a film can’t rise above “Transformers,” “G.I. Joe” and “Battleship.” Sometimes, such as in “Ouija: Origin of Evil,” there actually is more than meets the eye.

Seemingly small mistakes early on can lead to misfortune later on and derail your hopes of a fantasy championship.
