Horror movies have been using creepy kids to good effect for years, dating back at least to Patty McCormack in The Bad Seed. In the case of the upcoming Ouija: Origin Of Evil, the evil kid in question is The Millers’ Lulu Wilson, who gets top billing in the latest trailer for Mike Flanagan’s surprisingly scary-looking sequel to the 2014 hit. The trailer shows off some standard horror movie CGI—expect milky eyes and uncannily wide mouths galore—but the most extended scare comes from the last minute or so, when Wilson gives a matter-of-fact description of death by strangulation that’s legitimately chilling in its sing-song sweetness.

Ouija: Origin Of Evil hits theaters on October 21.
