This is one of my favorite movies. I love watching it. I think Kathleen Beller is perfectly cast as the naive heroine.
The basic plot is that Laura Daniels, a young, single girl living with her lawyer boyfriend in converted hotel apartment building -- one day discovers an old Ouija board on the top shelf of a closet by accident. She decides to start asking it questions. And she starts getting strange messages from the board.
It appears, however, that the Ouija board's previous owner was murdered - and messages from beyond warn Laura that she may be next. All around her are quite dubious of her supposed messages from the beyond.
The movie captures your attention instantly. And there are wonderful character actors who later went on to greater TV fame playing roles in the movie.
I love that the wind howls, branches fall on cars and there are spooky odd characters along the way. And you can't go wrong with a mental hospital playing a role in a thriller! And I especially enjoyed the owners of the motel! Deadly Messages is a fun way to spend a lazy afternoon.
