Trivia

Ami Dolenz had a no-nudity clause in her contract. However, Republic Pictures' foreign sales department decided after she was cast that nudity was crucial for international sales and pressured director Kevin Tenney to talk Ami into waiving the clause. Thinking it unethical, Tenney refused and later stated in an interview that it may have been the reason Republic tried to keep him from returning for Witchboard III: The Possession (1995).

"Witchboard 2: The Devil's Doorway"- 8/10. Not scary but entertaining nonetheless.
11 February 2004 | by movies2uSee all my reviews

Witchboard 2

This movie has plenty of entertainment stuffed into it's 90 minute running time, but it isn't too scary. Witchboard 2 is about Paige, who moves into an artist loft apartment after leaving her boyfriend. While moving in, she finds a Oujia board inside a closet, and just for fun, begins to play around with it. But you can't play with a Witchboard as Paige soon learns, when she contacts the spirit who claims to be a former tennant of the apartment complex who was murdered. Then, people in the complex begin dying in weird ways, and Paige must uncover the spirit's true identity before it destroys her.

The actors here aren't too bad, and Laraine Newman is hilarious as the eccentric landlord. This film has some 'jump' sequences that jolt you, but no real horror to scare you with. The movie also has a good mystery to it. Good for horror fans, and not cheesy at all. Don't expect a super-cheapy movie, it isn't that bad. 8/10.
