Plot : After three centuries, three witch sisters are resurrected in Salem Massachusetts on Halloween night, and it is up to two teenagers, a young girl, and an immortal cat to put an end to the witches’ reign of terror once and for all.
Review : One of my all time favorite Halloween films to ever be created. This horror/comedy delivers in almost every way possible. It’s an enjoyable film that you can watch with your family to spread the Halloween spirit. When I was younger I used to watch this movie multiple times in one week during the Halloween season. I may not be able to watch it as much anymore, but I still make sure I watch it at least once before Halloween. This is a movie that you and your family will love.
The story was great, it was unique and once again targeted younger children, which is rarely done. In order to remain young the witches must absorb all the life forces of the young children. The witches start chasing the children that resurrected them in hopes of obtaining the young girl Dani’s life force, the catch is they only have till midnight. Will the kids be able to stop these witches? The story does a great job with creeping us out and gives us some great comedy. How was the acting? The acting performance was great, was filled with some talented actors. Bette Midler and Sarah Jessica Parker were fantastic in this movie and they honestly fit the role nicely, sorry ladies. Omri Katz, Vinessa Shaw, and Thora Birch were all highly enjoyable to watch as well, they delivered some great performances. The rest of the supporting cast did a good job with their roles as well, this was a great all around acting performance.
Now the movie really wasn’t that scary, but it can still creep you out. The only person this film may scare is an 8 year old, but don’t get me wrong it can still creep you out a little. That was my only problem with the film was that it wasn’t completely scary, but you can expect that from a family movie, so you just have to overlook the scares in this film. Although, the adventurous/supernatural vibe made this movie a great one. You will be entertained just don’t expect to be scared out of your mind. Overall I loved this movie and thought it was highly enjoyable. The story was unique and highly entertaining. The acting was fantastic, all of the cast members did an outstanding job with their roles. The movie isn’t all that scary, but it can still creep you out at times, just don’t expect to be scared the whole time. The supernatural/adventurous vibe and the comedy made this movie highly enjoyable too watch, you won’t get bored with this one. If you haven’t seen this movie yet I absolutely recommend you go watch it, you won’t regret it! This a perfect movie for Halloween, this is one that the family can enjoy!
