OUIJA: DICING WITH DEATH – FREE

DICINGPI
FIRST: THE WARNING
You are about to watch a documentary which experiments with the practice of Ouija Boards. Some people believe that Ouija boards can open portals to demonic and dark entities that can have a negative impact on your life and the lives of those around you. We strongly advise that anyone watching does not
recreate anything that is shown in this documentary. We will not be held accountable for anyone choosing to ignore this advice.
FADE TO BLACK…

NOW THE BLURB FROM
PARANORMAL TRUTH’S YOUTUBE CHANNEL:
In this three part documentary, Dale Makin and Justin Cowell, along with some special guests, investigate the practice of Ouija boards. We take the use of Ouija boards to some of the most haunted locations throughout the UK to determine if Ouija boards are a genuine means of spirit communication or if it is nothing more than a board game which has inherited a negative stigma.

Justin Cowell, Paranormal Truth team member, sets the stage for these three ghost hunting episodes. These Ouija Board investigations will be conducted in nine of England’s most haunted locations.

RATING:  5 Charley’s
Paranormal Truth consists of two open-minded, skeptical paranormal investigators, Justin Cowell and Dale Makin, who travel the globe to some of the most haunted locations and document everything with their cameras.

DALEM
Dale Makin, the other dedicated
member of Paranormal Truth.

In this series, they have challenged themselves to fore go the usual ghost hunting equipment and use a Ouija Board instead. In each one of the investigations, Makin and Colwell try to make contact with various ghosts and paranormal entities across the U.K., but, from a skeptical point of view. Which is refreshing to see in the “Ghost hunting, reality TV genera. I gave the series 5 Charley’s because of their open-minded approach in the investigations.

Eventually, the patented and trademarked “Ouija Board” was classified as a “novelty toy” used for entertainment purposes.

Overall, the show has excellent production values. The only complaint I have is that I was not too familiar with the reputed hauntings they investigated as well as the experts who appear throughout the series. Short backstories would have helped overall. In the reference section below, I have included links
to the hauntings and personalities that appeared in the first episode.

The Ancient Ram Inn – Wotton-under-Edge
“The Ram Inn has been called the most haunted house in Britain… though how exactly one might measure, rank or quantify such a thing is beyond me. Nevertheless, there are countless stories of ghostly sightings at The Ancient Ram Inn; and worse still are the tales of forceful interference, physical assault and even intense demonic activity is reported at this little old Gloucestershire pub.”

Talking Boards, as they were called, became all the rage during the early 19th century when Spiritualism swept America. Mediums believed that the dead could contact the living through these boards.

OFFICIAL TRAILER

OGH#1
The Ouija board is used as a communication portal during a séance in a haunted house.
FFAM
Great-grand daughters of William Fuld who was running Kennard Novelty in 1890. The company that manufactured and marketed the “talking board” that was patented by Elijah Bond, a Baltimore attorney.
EXPER
During the Oujiacon, Investigator Sommer Jonez takes part in an eye-tracking experiment while using a Ouija board. These experiments were conducted by a visiting team of investigators from Denmark. (To learn the results of this experiment, scroll down.)

RATING: 3 Charley’s
This documentary sets out to address the two big hot-potato questions regarding Ouija boards. Do they work and are they dangerous to use? In several attempts to answer these question, the investigators, Sommer Jonez, Alejandro Dominguez and Josh Heard hold a series of séances in some famously haunted places where their experiments yield some surprising results.
Sorry, no spoiler alerts here.

Witches
A séance conducted by a Coven of Wiccans in a library results in scratching noises, whistling and a disembodied voice saying “Hello.”

The only reason there weren’t more Charley’s bestowed upon this feature was because of the production quality, basically the continually floating camera work and uneven recordings. Their investigative techniques were also a little loose here and there, but they will surely improve with more practice. A minor point, the use of strong language. Don’t get me wrong, I grew up in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen, so such “Bon Mots” are nothing new to me. But they do tend to draw attention away from the situation at hand.

BMARY
Bloody Mary, Voo Doo/New Orleans Historian ritually cleanses a Ouija board with fire for investigators Josh Heard and Sommer Jonez.

I also would have liked to have learned a little more about the background stories of the haunted locations they visited. Over all, you’ll enjoy this video, just as many of us have enjoyed using the Ouija board in the past.

NEWSALD
Another Séance, this time before a reportedly haunted mirror in a haunted house. In this instance, investigator Alejandro Dominguez’s (foreground) deceased Grandmother came though the board. This experience so unnerved Dominguez that he quit the production.

BUNING B
After the Planchette flies off the board, the crew decides to get rid of the board by burning it. Most practitioners of the Ouija strongly recommend against doing this as it will often cause worse problems.
Burying it or conducting an “industrial strength” cleansing is a better way to go.
