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.
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.Read more ›
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...Read more ›
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...
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!
