By and large, Witchboard is a movie I enjoy, but mostly for the nostalgia factor and the fact that Tenney was taking some risks at that particular time in the genre.

[Blu-ray Review] Cheesy goodness in all the right ways. The "Witchboard" Blu-ray is worthy of an unequivocal recommendation. Buy it.

Simple, trashy, and fun -- and I'm not just talking about Tawny Kitaen...
