Ever imagine a world that was full to the brim with pumpkins, werewolves and ghosts? Where everyday was a celebration of Halloween all of the elements that go with it? Well, then you most certainly have heard of Disney’s HALLOWEENTOWN, a cult classic that turns the ripe old age of 18 today. The film is written by Paul Bernbaum, John Cooksey and Ali Matheson, directed by Dwayne Dunham.
The film was released on the Disney Channel and was followed by four different sequels: HALLOWEENTOWN II, KALABAR’S REVENGE, HALLOWEENTOWN HIGH, AND RETURN TO HALLOWEENTOWN.
The synopsis of the film is as follows: On her 13th birthday, Marnie learns she’s a witch, discovers a secret portal, and is transported to Halloweentown — 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 movie is a hilarious look into a young witches’ plight as she attempts to save a town that she indirectly becomes part of. Intermixed with ghosts, goblins, werewolves and vampires, this is the perfect movie to set the tone for the Halloween spirit. HALLOWEENTOWN airs often on the Disney Channel, so keep those peepers peeled, grab some popcorn and a warm fuzzy blanket and enjoy a night in.
