The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
I AM ZOZO is a psychological horror film about five young people who play with a Ouija board and attract the attention of the malevolent Ouija demon ZoZo. The film is based on widely reported real experiences with this ancient and malevolent spirit that attaches itself to people exclusively through the Ouija board.
On paper I AM ZOZO sounds like a good little horror film so I was excited to check it out. The film starts off good enough as it introduces us the story and to the five main characters but it goes down hill from there.
I understand that the film was done on a limited budget and I appreciate that it was shot on Super8 but in the end it fails to do what it set out to do, scare people. After a while I became bored because there really was nothing going on besides some dialogue. I have to give credit to the cast, everyone did a very good job playing their roles considering what they had to work with here. I also thought the film had heart but it was let down by lack of story, I just did not see anything about the film besides the actors that was good.
Like I said I liked the whole idea that this spirit named ZoZo has appeared to people over the years, it was a great idea to put to film but it just never gets to the point where it is scary at all. So, I am going to end this review because there really is no reason to continue beating up the film here, it was a nice premise that ultimately fails to delivery any thrills. I would recommend a rental if you think you still want to see the film but if you want you can order the DVD HERE.
