Fav Halloween Movies 6 of 7

Now that we are winding down and getting to the end of the Fav Halloween movies I'm saving the best ones for last Movies 6 - 7 in my opinion are the best of all time Halloween movies. (And yes I know both photos are of Halloweentown 2, just use your imagination here people)



Rating: PG           Length: 84 mins.               Year: 1998

Cast: Debbie Reynolds, Judith Hoag, Kimberly J. Brown

Movie Description

A Disney Channel Original Movie that's become a Halloween-season standard, 1998's Halloweentown stars screen legend Debbie Reynolds as the matriarch of what turns out to be a family of witches.

When Aggie (Reynolds) unexpectedly drops in for a visit, her daughter (Gwen) isn't as thrilled as her three children about the surprise appearance. Aggie's drop-in coincides with an argument between Gwen and the children regarding why they aren't allowed to celebrate Halloween. To Gwen's displeasure, the grandmother supports her grandchildren's desires, and Gwen is soon fighting a losing battle.

Against Gwen's wishes, Aggie begins training Marnie, the 13-year old, to be a witch. A huge argument ensues, but Aggie (as always) convinces Gwen that Marnie is needed to help solve a string of mysterious disappearances that only a fresh, novice witch can help with.

From there, the film takes off on an other-worldly adventure filled with spells and teen romance, highlighted by the three siblings discovering and using their previously untapped powers to save their town from an evil demon who ironically was once Gwen's boyfriend.


Halloweentown 2

Rating: PG           Length: 81 mins.               Year: 2001

Cast: Debbie Reynolds, Judith Hoag, Kimberly J. Brown

Movie Description

Screen legend Debbie Reynolds portrays the grandmother of a teenage witch in the Disney Channel Original Movie, Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge. The film is the first sequel in a series of four films adapted from the original Disney production of Halloweentown.

The grand-daughter, Marnie (Kimberly J. Brown), has unknowingly allowed her grandmother's book of magical spells to fall into the hands of Kal (Daniel Kountz), who turns out to be the warlock son of Kalabar, a fearsome demon. When Aggie, the grandmother, begins noticing unusual magical activity, she becomes suspicious and, with Marnie in tow, depart for Halloweentown to investigate and try to rectify the situation. Upon arrival, they discover that the town has been transformed (via black magic) into a nightmarish version of all things "Halloween."

The film is directed by Mary Lambert, whose resume includes music videos and television as well as feature films, primarily in the horror genre.
