Who can forget the sleepover game of choice, that often scared and thrilled simultaneously?
Director Michael Bay and Hasbro are in the works to make a film out of the prophetic board game Ouija, promising that it will be no less frightening than the intensity of the game. The first Ouija game, where players put their hands on a planchette, or heart-shaped piece of wood that would magically move to letters and numbers conveying messages from spirits of another world, was patented in 1890. Hasbro began selling the supernatural-themed game in 1966, and it has been a hit ever since.
"Half of the people that play Ouija as a seance think it's just a game," executive producer of the film Brian Goldner told MTV News. "The other half thinks it's much more serious than that. So that idea, is this real or is this just sort of imagined? Is this something that's done by the participants or is this something that's really from beyond?"
