In this horror film, the spirit of a young boy named David reaches out to Linda Brewster (Tawny Kitaen) while she participates in an Ouija board session at a party. However, when Linda unwisely uses the board alone to attempt to communicate with David, she summons the spirit of a brutal murderer, who begins to hunt down and kill her friends. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi

On the surface, Witchboard looks like a campy, cheesy horror film that most would shrug off pretty quickly, but it's those qualities that make it more enjoyable than most of the same ilk.
[Blu-ray Review] Cheesy goodness in all the right ways. The "Witchboard" Blu-ray is worthy of an unequivocal recommendation. Buy it.
While by no means top-tier horror, it's nonetheless original and amusing.
Simple, trashy, and fun -- and I'm not just talking about Tawny Kitaen...
Good, eeevil fun for everyone.

Audience Reviews for Witchboard
- Jim Morar: Damn I hate talking to ghosts with plaque on my teeth. (Brandon and Jim start laughing) A little psychic humor.
- Brandon Sinclair: God why are we laughing?
- Jim Morar: It helps us forget how scared we are.
- Jim Morar: (at the cemetery with Brandon) Look nobody's home. The place is locked up.
- Brandon Sinclair: Oh damn it. I guess we're just gonna have to come back tomorrow.
- Jim Morar: Yeah, as long as we're here, I'm gonna check out David's grave.
- Brandon Sinclair: Why?
- Jim Morar: (turns around) Why not?!
- Jim Morar: (while driving in the car with Brandon) What's our first move when we get there?
- Brandon Sinclair: The big bad public library.
- Jim Morar: Why?
- Brandon Sinclair: Why not?
- Jim Morar: (thinking for a moment in silence) Oh well, as long as you got a reason.
- Brandon Sinclair: (talking to Jim about Sarabeth's death) She suspected something about David. She was gonna check on it. I think David killed her.
- Jim Morar: Wait a minute, the spirit killer her?
- Brandon Sinclair: Yes, and I think he cut your phone line too so I couldn't warn Linda about the Ouija. And he probably killed Lloyd. By that time I think he was after you!
- Jim Morar: Man, are you listening to yourself? You're telling me that there's a ten year old ghost flying around Fairfield killing people.
- Sarabeth: You ever heard of the word 'Malfeitor' before?
- Brandon Sinclair: Malfeitor? It's Portuguese; it means 'someone evil'. Why?
- Sarabeth: (asking about the spirit) Was David Portuguese?
- Brandon Sinclair: No, I don't think so.
- Sarabeth: And he was only ten years old?
- Brandon Sinclair: Yeah.
- Sarabeth: Whoa, he must've taken some mega vitamin 'cause he was a real toughie.
- Brandon Sinclair: Something's bothering you, what is it?
- Sarabeth: (looks frightened) I see danger ahead!
- Brandon Sinclair: For Linda?
- Sarabeth: For you, if you miss my house. (Starts laughing hysterically) Ha-ha-ha-ha It's coming up on the right.
- Brandon Sinclair: (smiles) A little more psychic humor, huh?
- Sarabeth: (gets scared) I see a vision!
- Brandon Sinclair: What is it?
- Sarabeth: Me! In your car, GOING HOME! (Turns around, laughing hysterically) Ha-ha-ha-ha Just some more psychic humor! Ha-ha Come on Brandi, let's hit the musky dusky. TTFN.
- Jim Morar: (looks at Brandon confused) TTFN?
- Brandon Sinclair: Uh, Ta-Ta for Now. (About the psychic) Uh, thanks for letting me bring her.
- Jim Morar: Don't mention it, to anybody!
