Fav Halloween Movies 4 of 7

I have to be honest, these two movies are not my top Favs but they still deserve to make the list. Both are filled with mystery, not knowing what's really going on until the very end, and yes, very entertaining.


 Phantom Of The Megaplex

Rating: G           Length: 89 mins.               Year: 2000

Cast: Taylor Handley, Corinne Bohrer and Caitlin Wachs

Movie Description

Adapted rather loosely on the classic Phantom of the Opera, the Disney Channel Original Movie, The Phantom of the Megaplex takes viewers behind the scenes of a theater where mysterious goings-on are occurring.

Pete Riley is the 17-year old assistant manager of the Grand Megaplex who's busily preparing for the premiere of "Midnight Mayhem." Rumor has it that the millionaire owner of the theater is planning to attend the much-anticipated screening, and the employees are working frantically to make certain that everything is ready.

Pete's agenda is complicated by his having to "babysit" his younger brother and sister, and just as that situation appears resolved, every other imaginable snafu occurs, making his "sibling" predicament an afterthought.

Taylor Handley, Jacob Smith and Caitlin Wachs as the siblings turn in fine performances, while screen legend Mickey Rooney, portraying an eccentric who believes he is employed by the theater, adds a nice touch.


Mom's Got a Date With A Vampire

Rating: PG           Length: 85 mins.               Year: 2000

Cast: Matt O'Leary, Laura Vandervoort and Myles Jeffrey

Movie Description

A few years ahead of its' time, the Disney Channel Original Movie, Mom's Got a Date With a Vampire deals with the (now) mega-popular subject of vampires and their interaction with the living.

The three children of a single mother each have their motivations for getting their mother out of the house, but when the youngest, Taylor, who happens to be engrossed in all things "vampire"-related, meets his mom's blind date, he is convinced that the handsome stranger is actually a vampire. His efforts, both to convince his older siblings of his suspicions, as well as desperately trying to nip the date in the bud, make for an entertaining hour-and-a-half of classic Disney fare.

Myles Jeffrey as the perceptive Taylor nearly steals the show with his performance, while Matt O'Leary, Laura Vandervoort, Caroline Rhea and Charles Shaughnessy also turn in admirable performances. Steve Boyum directed, a role he also performed in another Disney Channel production, Stepsister From Planet Weird.
