The Austin premiere of The Ouija Experiment was at midnight tonight. And even thought I still smelled like the theater's kitchen, I waited for a ticket & then a seat.

The director introduced four members of the cast, and then the film, and had a Q&A afterwards.

The movie is pretty simple - four friends use an Ouija board to contact spirits while a fifth friend films it, and they neglect to follow the rules of the board (don't ask a spirit how it died, don't ask how you will die, and always say goodbye before you leave the board). Due to their lack of respect, they are haunted by the spirits they contacted.

While the movie had more than a few issues (how did they find all this info online about the three spirits with just first names & general info about how they died?), it wasn't bad for an indie horror. And it was certainly better than The Innkeepers, as far as paranormal stuff goes...

The director is currently tourin' with the film, skippin' the film festivals to get direct audience feedback. Durin' the Q&A, I asked about On Demand/pay per view or Netflix options, and turns out Fangoria has already made an offer to put The Ouija Experiment on their website's "on demand" list after the tour.

So, that's good news for them, I suppose.

Afterwards, I took the flyers (I was told they were passes when I picked 'em up), and got signatures from the four cast members & the director. Nice folks...hope the movie does well for 'em. Kind of a bummer, though, that it played in the smallest of the Drafthouse's theaters, due to lack of advance ticket sales.
