When a young girl living with her good-witch grandmother learns she too is a witch, she must help her grandmother save Halloweentown from evil forces.


Awww this movie series had been a favorite of mine when I was a youth. It was nice revisiting this world and these characters X amount of years later. 

The story follows Marnie, Dylan, and Sophie Pipe. Marnie loves Halloween and wants so much more. Their mysterious granny comes over for her yearly visit which always ends with a fight. While granny and mom are fighting, Marnie witnesses granny use magic. The three kids follow their granny and find there is another world out there that is magical and Halloween every day. However, there is a darkness hiding. 

Soooo cheesy, but soooooooo fun. This is fun for not only the kids for the adults. It has humor and serious moments too. 

Oooo that baddie was easy to pinpoint, but it was fun. I am still bummed the baddie was the baddie. The character was very sweet. A touch creepy....but sweet. 

I really want to watch the rest now! I watched this twice already haha. I watched it during a girl's night and this week. I wonder if I con BF to watch the others with me since it is Halloween after all. ;)

In the end, a cute and fun Halloween movie for all ages. I'll give it 4 stars.

I don't recall this one, but I was in college at the time, so not the target audience! I just watched Hocus Pocus for the first time.
