#953 Halloween 2018: Witchtrap (1989)

Another horror movie from the creator of Witchboard and Night of the Demons? No doubt I was looking forward to seeing Witchtrap and rightfully expecting quite a lot out of it.

I was puzzled how amateurish this movie plays out, especially after Night of the demons had just delivered some state of the art, best in class horror of the eighties. Witchtrap was shot in three weeks, which might contribute to how unfinished the film seems, but even that doesn’t explain the poor manuscript or the wooden acting.

The only delight here is Tony, a disgruntled and sarcastic other half of the security team, who delivers plenty of epic one-liners so bad they’re good. Otherwise Witchtrap is on the dull side, below average haunted house movie that has been done better many times before.

Even by the director Kevin S. Tenney himself.
