We discuss “Ouija” and ask for spirit guidance to determine if this widely panned film is really that bad or secretly a spooky delight.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE: “OUIJA” WITH GUEST NICHOLAS PAYNE SANTOS
Alongside NHE host Scott Murphy to dive into this one, we have a great former guest in the form of It Cuts Deep director Nicholas Payne Santos.
Over the course of the episode, Scott and Nick talk about whether the film deserved its vociferous critical reaction, how the film is wackier than it first appears, and some of the most convenient plotting you are likely to see in a film.
Plus, they ask important questions like: “Why do all these movies have to feature a wise old Italian lady?” “Does anybody know what the supernatural rules are supposed to be in this film?” And most important of all, “How much does Stiles White hate Mike Flanagan?”
You can check out It Cuts Deep on most VOD platforms, including Shudder.
