Directed by Thomas Doran, Brendan Faulkner, Eugenie Joseph
After their car breaks down, a group of travelers find themselves stranded in a remote part of New England. After taking shelter in a spooky old mansion, complete with a graveyard, they discover a ouija board and decide to spend the night attempting to summon some spirits. But the group soon learns that playing with the forces of black magic isn't fun and games, and it's not long before they're head-to-head with all sorts of demonic creatures, shape shifters, and other forms of evil, all of whom are more than happy to pick them off in the most gruesome of ways.

I haven't watched this one yet. I'm just here to give five skulls to the beautiful Richard Corben promotional art used on the poster and on the preview page! I'd recognize that colored pencil made to resemble watercolor and airbrush style ANYWHERE!
A decent movie, has that stupid dumb kind of charm too it. Fun and worth a watch.
Boring but hard to pull away from. So classic LOL
This head-slappingly moronic film was stitched together from two incomplete ones, and it shows, but this hodgepodging does give the film a dreamlike charm -- AND THEN THERE'S A NEW CRAZY RUBBER MONSTER EVERY FEW MINUTES! I saw Spookies 32 years ago on USA as a six-year-old, and I've looked ever since for the bizarre flick that set my young imagination on fire (you can totally see how the radioactive grim reaper and fluid sucking spider chick would leave such an impression on a young boy). For the longest time, part of me thought it was a misremembering of Witchboard, and sometimes I thought I'd just dreamed it all -- but here it is! It's real! If you watch Spookies without Joe Bob, you are doing yourselves a vast disservice.
If you give this movie less than 4 stars I seriously do not think you should be a genre film fan. Is it a great film? Nope. Is it a fun, campy, classic? Absolutely.
