Incosequential but mindlessly enjoyable silliness
31 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing adverts on the TV for this film, way back 98' or so and thinking, wow that looks like an awesome film. I never saw it back then even thought it was on the Sci-Fi Channel a lot and finally caught it a few nights back. Its a fun, mildly diverting affair that never impresses too much but has enough to keep from being boring. The plot has an unemployed stock market guy using a ouija board he has received from his landlord and becoming possessed as a result. The film suffers from a flat script and watchable but never terribly interesting acting, with David Nerman just about handling his shifts in character, Elizabeth Lambert pretty likable as his wife and Cedric Smith playing the landlord with a faint menace. Fortunately, things move fairly fast, there are some fun deaths, including one really weird and possibly unique offing that is pretty memorable. There is also some sex, with mild nudity as well as fun special effects, monster effects and such that range from quite nifty to somewhat lousy. Its a shame Kevin Tenney didn't come back for this one, because whilst Peter Svatek does an alright job, keeps the pace tight and stops the interest from ever from drying up, the film suffers from the noticeable lack of the same flair as the original Witchboard or Night Of The Demons. Its only has a little gore as well, though it doesn't need too much anyway. All in all, I thought this was a fun, somewhat nostalgic ride. If I had seen it when I was younger, I would probably have thought it was ace, but as it is, I dug it but not too much. Worth a look if this sort of thing appeals, but not essential.
