Ouija 2 Will Set Up The Franchise For An Anthology

Director Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Hush) were recently interviewed by Bloody Disgusting and spilled some beans on the upcoming horror flick Ouija 2, which is expected to be coming out this Halloween season.

“It’s a lot of fun, and it’s not the movie people expect,” Flanagan told the site. “I know there’s some skepticism about it, and I think that’s appropriate – I was skeptical too. But I got to do something really cool and I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised.”

“It’s a whole new thing,” he added. “I actually can’t talk about that. But a Ouija board does factor into it.”

On weather the Ouija will franchise will be come an anthology series.

“It’d be kind of cool to see how the franchise does with new voices coming in for later installments,” said Flanagan. “There’s just so many places you can go, narratively, with the board itself… it’s been around for 100 years, and the story possibilities are endless. It could be a real anthology franchise, with a different filmmaker helming each new entry. That could be lots of fun.”

Ouija 2 will be hitting theaters on October 21st.
