The whole month of October is my excuse to breeze by means of as many Halloween motion pictures as potential, and among the many tacky horror movies and really scary thrillers lies a heartwarming gem: Halloweentown. The primary in a four-part collection of Halloween classics, Halloweentown is definitely among the finest Disney Channel motion pictures. Whereas iconic strains like, “Mother, I am 13. I am virtually a grown-up,” have been caught at the back of my head for years, I noticed it has been over a decade since I really sat down and watched the film right through. So, armed with a bowl stuffed with sweet and a few festive childlike marvel, I got down to see if the movie actually holds as much as my reminiscences of it.
As an grownup, I am proud to announce that Grandma Aggie continues to be simply as badass as ever and the healthful nature of Halloweentown itself has solely gotten extra magical through the years. However together with the treats got here just a few tips, and I positively needed to look away from the TV for a second when Kalabar got here on display screen. (Do you keep in mind these glowing yellow eyes?!) Along with his completely monstrous look (sure, 3-year-old me had a sound purpose to be terrified), the warlock is bent on a mission to destroy all the human race and take over the world.
As somebody who’s idolized this film for years, this was a very haunting revelation, however there are such a lot of nostalgic elements of the film that make it worthy of watching on a crisp fall night with a heat cup of tea. Please get pleasure from my candid ideas whereas watching Halloweentown for the primary time in 10 years forward.
