This ambitious horror film rejects graphic violence and instead spins a spooky tale of the supernatural. In it Linda Brewster (Tawny Kitaen) becomes obsessed with a Ouija board that has a direct line to the spirit of David, a friendly 10-year-old who died 30 years previously. Linda ignores

the rule never to use the board alone and gets tricked by the evil spirit of a savage axe-murderer, who pretends to be David. Instead of simply depicting a series of deaths of cardboard cutouts, WITCHBOARD takes the high road and actually tries to develop relatively complex relationships between

the main characters. While the movie suffers at times from some clumsy scripting, weak (but not bad) acting, and a cliched presentation, it still tries to be something more than just a thrill ride. Its gore and violence are definitely deemphasized. First-time feature director-writer Kevin S.

Tenney imbues his picture with a surprisingly slick sense of style and employs some clever camerawork when the narrative warrants it, refusing to bore the viewer with the endless evil-point-of-view shots favored by so many other horror directors.
