Classic for all the right reasons
This movie captures the innocence of being a child on Halloween.
Not very good. Started strong but then the plot spiraled out of control. Only watch for nostalgia.
‘Halloweentown' is a family-Halloween film directed by Duwayne Dunham.
So, this might not be the best quality film in the sense that it is a Made-for-TV movie and was only ever shown on the Disney Channel. Though the movie has a beautiful story that I strongly believe everybody who watches it can get behind.
The film focuses on Marnie (Kimberly J. Brown) a 13-year-old learns she's a witch, discovers a secret portal, and is transported to Halloweentown with her grandmother (Debbie Reynolds). A magical place where ghosts and ghouls, witches and werewolves live apart from the human world. But she soon finds herself battling wicked warlocks, evil curses, and endless surprises.
The child acting in this movie is horrid, yes, and the acting all around really isn't bringing any standout performances. Although I do think that Kimberly J. Brown does play a great Marnie and brings a lot of heart to the movie.
The story has a lot of potential, revolving around a secret world, family drama about an ancient lineage of witches, and more. Unfortunately, the movie doesn't even run for a full 90 minutes and most of it is spent introducing our characters, their relationships, and showing off Halloweentown itself. We don't get a whole lot of incite on the villain and what his motives are to go back to the mortal world aside form him being bored with Halloweentown, which I didn't buy into.
Overall, this is a movie I watch every Halloween with my family. It has something for everybody with it being heart, humor and maybe some scares if you're a young child.
A good classic Halloween movie that deserves more popularity.
A fun movie for kids to watch during halloween season. I remember as a kid this playing on the disney channel every year in october.
I love this movie so much, i grew up with it, and it is the best halloween movie ever
Marnie dating Kal from Halloweentown 2 we all know we should have a sequel to it if they make a Halloweentown 5 it would be amazing it would be an amazing story how Kal came backto Halloweentown to take over but how did he end up with Marnie
the best movie ive ever seen that was made for tv
A great classic Halloween family friendly movie you need to watch!
