Ouija Bored

People need to get over this Ouija Board nonsense. There is not one documented case that proves playing with a Ouija Board summons demons.

The Ouija Board scare can be tracked down to one movie which came out in 1973. So long ago, that current Ouija Board fear mongerers’ PARENTS weren’t even born yet. That movie was The Exorcist

In the movie, Regan plays with a Ouija Board, and contacts “Captain Howdy”, which leads to her being possessed by the demon Pazuzu.

This is the genesis of the legend that Ouija Boards are dangerous. Most people spouting this crap don’t even realize that this nonsense originated with a movie. When The Exorcist came out, people were scared out of their minds. It made such a cultural impact that people have forgotten about the Ouija Board scene in the film, and just keep repeating the myth.
