The Ouija Board
On Friday 13th July 1984 a group of friends staying at The Cumberland Hotel decided to use a Ouija Board after a night of drinking. It was late, they lit candles in Room 13 and attempted to summon a spirit. Suddenly the candles were blown out, and a tray fell to the floor smashing the glasses on it.
In recent years members of the group have been dying in horrible circumstances, and always on a Friday 13th. Following the latest death the remaining friends have decided to retun to the hotel to summon the same spirit and help it to find peace, hoping to end the curse.
Dare you join them?
