Ouija boards in films are nothing new. Take a look at 1944’s The Uninvited. It may not be the Hasbro version we all know and love, but the same concept is there. And this scene is particularly important as this is one of the first uses of the ouija game on the screen to depict some horror elements. Over the years we get other examples such as 13 Ghosts and The Exorcist, but it wasn’t until 1986’s Witchboard where the Ouija was the central focus of the plot.
Originally it was going to be called Ouija, but there was fear of copyright infringement so the title was changed to Witchboard, which I actually like a lot better. So being the first film solely focused on this board, how does it fair?
