Elizabeth talked about Ouija with Den of Geek and you can read some of it here! To read the full interview click on the link! 🙂
Den of Geek: Did you watch the first movie and were you aware of the back history set up there?
Elizabeth Reaser: I was aware of it, but because it was a very different movie, a different filmmaker, almost such a different world, it was more important for me to invest in our world and in the ’60s and the relationships with the kids and with Henry. That was really the real focus.
How far did you go in terms of the physical stuff you did?
There was a stunt woman, thank god, that helped me, because I really can’t go flying across the room and land on my tailbone at this age. It’s just not a good idea. It was intensely physical and just exhausting. Plus all the crying and the high, high intensity emotional stuff is really exhausting.
Did you do any research into mediums? Have you ever been to one yourself?
I did and I have. Some of the stuff is weird and some of it’s really believable and even scary. I think psychics, there are some people that really are psychic and it doesn’t make sense, but why should it make sense? To me there’s so much we don’t understand about our world and I think it’s really fascinating to see these people come up with the stuff that they come up with. Some of it is BS, but a lot of it isn’t, from what I’m seeing.
Did you ever go to one where you felt like it was the real thing?
Yeah, I did. I went to someone who knew things that they shouldn’t have known or that they couldn’t have known and predicted things that ended up being true. It unnerved me because I think I’m suggestible to begin with. It’s interesting.
