I first saw this in the movie theatre circa 1987, and it has always been one of my favorite movies. Watching it again 20 years later, I can see that it hasn't lost any of its magic. The DVD contains a "making of" feature that's interesting, as well as commentary by the director/writer and producer.

The plot is pretty simple. The opening scene is a party, where someone suggests playing with a Ouija board. Not surprisingly, a spirit is contacted, and strange things began to happen. Tawny Kitaen, the main character, becomes "addicted" to the board and is soon possessed by an evil spirit. The ending is well-done and really cool. The acting from all of the characters is top-notch, and the effects are good. One of the best things about the movie is the actors make it work, making you care about the characters. Also, there are numerous "jumps" or "scares" that keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the movie.

Definitely a must-see for any horror fan, especially of supernatural-themed horror.

"Witchboard" is better than many people think. Is it a classic? Well, maybe not, but if it's not in the elite of the horror movie genre, it's clearly one of the better ones. You've got: some great/fantastic kills, a witchboard which is a transmitter to ghosts and demons and ultimately a window for possession of one of the main characters by a demon named Malfador.

The acting in this movie is pretty good for a horror flick and I really thought the movie was well directed too. The characters are dynamic and there is good character development evident throughout the movie which is more than I can say for about 100% of today's trash coming out in theaters. Also, I really liked the plot and storyline. "Witchboard" is an imaginitive and creative horror movie which is based in large part upon a supernatural element involving an evil force is which is released through a Quija board.

It's much more difficult for a horror movie to be successful and effective based on supernatural subject matter as opposed to real life horror...the problem is that as a screenplay writer and director, you have to be able to sell this supernatural element to the audience or the movie is a total joke...in short, it's got to make sense at least as far as the imagination is concerned because even in the metaphysical, there has to be some rules, some logic that makes the story work and stimulate the viewer's mind. The directers and writers of "Witchboard" were successful in this area and that makes the movie scary, interesting and good.

The movie starts out at a party in which Linda's friend named Brandon brings a Quija board and they obviously have no idea what they are dealing with.

I think a good number of people have tried a Ouija (a combination of the French and German words for yes, Oui - Ja) board at least once in their lives, most likely when they were younger, as we're generally more open and accepting in believing in the supernatural possibilities inherent within the game. For those of you unfamiliar with it, it's a board inscribed with all the letters of the alphabet, numbers from 0 to 9, and the words yes, no, maybe, and good-bye. There's also a piece called a planchette, which is a movable three-legged device people would put their fingertips on, and then pose questions that would be answered by whatever supernatural elements may be around at the time, spelling out words or pointing to the words printed on the board. Do spirits actually move the planchette, sending messages from beyond the grave? No...the movements are really caused by unnoticeable, and usually unintentional, forces of the persons whose hands are on the planchette, and usually end up spelling out gibberish and unintellible words.

Witchboard (1985), written and directed by Kevin Tenney, presents the notion that the Ouija board is actually a link to supernatural, even a portal at times, and what happens when a particularly nasty spirit decides to try and make use of the portal. The film stars Tawny Kitaen (yes, the girl from the Whitesnake video), Todd Allen, who appeared in the very excellent western Silverado in the same year, and soap opera regular Stephen Nichols. As the film begins, we are in the midst of a party, hosted by Linda (Kitaen), and her boyfriend Jim (Allen). It seems to be going alright, although it seemed like there was something lacking from your typical 80's party, namely the cocainia...

This is and will always be one of my most favorite movies of all time! My best friend John and I used to watch this movie when we were teenagers. "Mom Tina", who was John's Mom, worked at a local video store in Sturtevant, WI when we were growing up. Back then, mom and pop video stores were all the hype before the blockbusters and hollywood video stores came into being. John and I use to use the ouija board in his Mom's basement, strange things occurred...the TV shut off by itself, the lights flickered... it was a little scary, but yet we thought it was cool.

Watching Tawney Kitaen, in the Heavy Metal, Whitesnake videos, and knowing Stephen Nichols who played "Patch" on Days of our lives in the 80's...made it cool... For a long time Witchboard was not available at all, it was out of print, and I'm so glad that it has finally been made available on DVD. No matter how old or young you are, I highly recommend the movie! Witchboard 2 isn't bad either, a good sequel... There is also a Witchboard part 3, which isn't the best, but not a bad film... The original, of course, is by far the best!

Also, no one can get over Kathleen Wilhoite, who plays the cool, and layed back, "Zarabeth" the medium who tries to exorcise the spirits from "Jim and Linda's" apt. I could go on... but, I'll stop here... and say...

TTFN...

watch the movie and you'll know what I mean...

Don't play it alone!

haha ha... evil wicked laughter echoes in the distance...Malfeitor is waiting for you you to play!
