Holds Up Well
A woman (Tawny Kitaen) finds an interest in her friend Brandon’s Ouija Board when he brings the occult tool by her party.
This was the beginning for much of the crew. Writer-director Kevin Tenney had never written or directed before, Kenney’s college friend Gerald Geoffray had never produced before, nor had executive producer Walter Josten. Indeed, much of this came out of Tenney’s film school classes.
Tawny Kitaen was cast because guys in the office were “drooling” during casting when they saw her. Tenney had actually favored another actress, but went with Kitaen because of this perceived charisma. (This casting also was a lucky break, because between filming and release, Kitaen blew up thanks to her infamous Whitesnake videos.) As a side note, O. J. Simpson was dating Kitaen at the time and would visit the set with his red-dyed poodle.
While not the greatest of the 1980s horror films, one has to admit this still holds up well. In some ways, it is more amusing now (2014) than it ever was originally because of all the 1980s hair and clothing. For example, just look at Zarabeth (Kathleen Wilhoite)… that is some weird 1980s style.
But really, this is something of a modern classic because what other horror film really captures the danger of the Ouija? None come to mind for me, and it seems like such an obvious choice… well played Kevin Tenney for going with this.
The Scream Factory disc contains a wealth of bonus features, including two audio commentaries. One of them features Tenney, Gerald Geoffray and Walter Josten, and is excellent, featuring many fine stories, including how much craft services loves doughnuts.
Not a bad effort at all.
Witchboard is set in the LOs Angeles town of Fairfields & starts at a party thrown by Jim Morar (Todd Allen) & his girlfriend Linda Brewster (Twny Kitaen), one of their friends Brandon Sinclair (Stephen Nichols) decides to demonstrate the use of a Ouija Board (as you do) that he has in his back pocket (as you would), he contacts the spirit of a young boy named David. Linda becomes intrigued by the Ouija Board & gives it a go herself the next day while alone, Linda contacts David & he seems pleasant enough despite being dead. However David’s helpfulness soon changes & Linda is soon terrorised by the spirit, Linda’s guy Jim doesn’t fair any better as his best mate is killed & suspicion falls on him. Supernatural expert Brandon realises that an evil spirit is using the inexperienced & weak willed Linda to enter our world…
This British American co-production was written & directed by Kevin Tenney & one has to say that Witchboard is a fairly slick, competent & enjoyable supernatural horror film that isn’t outstanding or original or brilliant but is a perfectly entertaining way to pass 90 odd minutes especially if your a fan of the horror genre in general. Everything about Witchboard is a cut above the average low budget horror film, from the surprisingly decent character’s & dialogue to a script that tries to do something a bit different with somewhat routine inspiration & as such there’s a couple of reasonable twist’s at the end although in fairness they don’t really affect the story that much but it is nice to have them there all the same just to keep the interest levels going. Of course Witchboard is far from perfect, there’s a couple of plot-holes like if the axe murderer needed to possess someone who killed Zarabeth & Brandon? Also I think Jim needs to choose his friends more carefully, I mean I am not being funny here but anyone who will purposely throw a hatchet towards you witch misses you by inches & then laughs probably isn’t worth knowing…
Witchboard looks surprisingly slick, there’s some nice photography including a great shot at the end as the camera follows Jim as he falls through a second storey window right down onto a car roof & there’s also one or two other very impressive shots that give Witchboard quite a nice visual style. The one area where Witchboard doesn’t quite stand up is in the horror & gore department, over the course of 90 odd minutes there are only three kills in it & apart from a cool shot of an axe going into someones head there’s little in the way of blood or gore. The distinctive house used in Witchboard has featured in many films & telly show’s including Willard (1971) & the excellent Waxwork (1988).
With a supposed budget of about $2,000,000 this has good production values & looks better than the budget might suggest. The acting is also better than one might expect, Todd Allen appears in the sequel in a completely different role while Kathleen Wilhoite as Zarabeth is equally both annoying & amusing at the same time.
Witchboard is a lot better than you might expect & while I would stop short of calling it an absolute classic it’s definitely an enjoyable slice of 80’s supernatural horror that actually holds up very well. Followed by two less successful sequels Witchboard 2: The Devil’s Doorway (1993) & Witchboard III: The Possession (1995).
