Storyline

At a party, a guest brings out a Ouija board, and they attempt to contact a spirit he knows. The spirit does appear, but it becomes apparent to the one who brought the Ouija board that this is an evil spirit that is impersonating his spirit, and despite warnings not to use the board alone, a woman uses it alone, and becomes harassed by the evil spirit, his goal to possess her so he can walk the earth again.

Ooo Ooo Witchy Woman
16 April 2005 | by (Gulfport, FL) – See all my reviews

Centered around Ouija Board usage, "Witchboard" is a solid quasi-horror 80s flick. There are a handful of cheap effect scares but this movie lives more on that "what if" feeling. An OK rental for a boring rainy night. IF you plan to experiment with a Ouija of your own, make sure you do your homework first!!! Kitaen does a decent job as the female lead Linda. Given, not award winning material but believable enough. There isn't a lot of gore, not a lot of suspense, but its an interesting topic nonetheless. This movie probably could do reasonably well in a modern remake because the subject hasn't been touched on in quite a while. I would go see it for sure, interesting if not controversial subject.

5/10
