Product Description

Join Marnie (Kimberly J. Brown) and her grandmother Aggie (Debbie Reynolds) as they stir up a cauldron full of comedy and adventure in two Disney Channel classics -- HALLOWEENTOWN and HALLOWEENTOWN II: KALABAR'S REVENGE. 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. HALLOWEENTOWN Double Feature will charm pixies, trolls and families everywhere every day of the year.

In a place called Halloweentown, good and evil look very different than one might expect. Thanks to a visit from Grandmother Aggie (Debbie Reynolds), Marnie (Kimberly J. Brown) and her family's tradition of ignoring the Halloween holiday are about to change in the extreme. It seems that Marnie's mother Gwen (Judith Hoag) has been hiding a big secret from her three children--all of them possess supernatural powers. Now that it's Marnie's thirteenth birthday, she must begin her training as a witch or lose her powers forever. While Gwen wants nothing more than to see her children grow up as "normal" humans, Grandmother Aggie and Marnie have other ideas. A brewing crisis between good and evil in the alternate world Halloweentown soon pulls the entire family through a portal and into an intense battle against ghouls, goblins and the warlock Kalabar (Robin Thomas). Halloweentown II takes place two years after Halloweentown and finds Kalabar's son bent on revenge. Marnie has matured as a witch, but her powers are pushed to the limit in a desperate effort to triumph over an evil curse in order to save Halloweentown, her family and the human world. This is good Disney Halloween fun with nice costuming and special effects, a wholesome message about the power of family, cooperation and perseverance, and ghouls that, though creepy looking, aren't likely to inspire nightmares in younger family members. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Halloweentown is the Greatest September 13, 2005
My daughters and I just love the Halloween season and there's no better movie to watch than this one. We can watch it over and over and never get tired of it. We always say we'd love to live in Halloweentown year round.(Too bad it's not a real town...or is it?) We're so glad it finally came out on DVD so now we can watch it whenever we want and don't have to wait until the one time of year for The Disney Channel to show it. I can't say enough about this movie. If you love Halloween I know you will love this movie too. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT HALLOWEEN MOVIES FOR THE FAMILY September 15, 2005
I love a good family Halloween movie. Something that's not too scary for little ones, but still something absorbing enough for adults. There are actually three of these movies now as the third, "Halloweentown High" came out in 2004 and it's too bad that Disney didn't release all three together.

The basic premise is that there is an alternate world from our own where it is always Halloween called, of course, Halloweentown. Aggie Cromwell (the radiant Debbie Reynolds) is a powerful witch as is her daughter Gwen (Judith Hoag). Aggie wants to train Gwen's daughter Marnie (Kimberly Brown) to use her powers before she loses them when she turns 13. This results in a big argument between Aggy and Gwen. Aggy returns to Halloweentown but Marnie and her two siblings Dylan and Sophie secretly follow her. Once there they learn about a dark force threatening Halloween town and only the combined power of all the Cromwell women, including Mom Gwen can stop it.

In the sequel, virtually the entire Main cast returns as Marnie has now become more proficient with her powers and as we learned at the end of the first film it turns out that the younger siblings also have developing powers of their own. This time their old foe Kalabar is back to wreak havoc and try to turn the people of our normal world into monsters.

The special effects and makeup in these films are above average, especially for made-for-tv films. All of the denizens of Halloween town are monsters of some sort and could be a tad scary for little ones but probably not too much. Kimberly Brown really develops as an actress and holds her own with the veteran Debbie Reynolds. Judith Hoag gets to do a bit more in this sequel as well.

All in all these are pretty good films, good family fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE THESE MOVIES!!! September 12, 2005
I am sooo happy that these movies have finally been released on DVD! I have to admit, I love watching these with the kids! I love the costumes, backgrounds, music and really good child actors. The stories are great too! So much fun on a cool fall night! Buy this DVD, pop some corn and enjoy!

By the way, if your worried that they might be too scary, don't. My son watched these at 5 and was not afraid at all. There are villians, but they are done in a fun way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Halloween Treat October 2, 2005
These two (and the third) Halloweentown movies are really, surprisingly great. At first when they had first announced the original Halloweentown, I thought it would be a lame, cheap movie but I was shocked when I saw it, the special effects, visuals and acting were all excellent, the acting was superb and was very believable, the charectors are well thought out and you really feel like your with them wherever they go whether its in there home or in HalloweenTown. Not only are the visuals, Special Effects, and Acting excellent, but the premise is also very original as well and doesn't feel like a carbon copy of something else. The HalloweenTown movies are one of my favorite Halloween movies of all time. It just gets me into the holiday that will be coming up and I get so excited, it brings me into the spirit! You need to buy these on DVD or at least give it a watch because you will not be dissapointed. This goes for all three though I will say that the third film wasn't as great as the first two, but it was still great and enjoyable and will leave you with a smile on your face. Buy these on DVD and enjoy them every October.

The first one has Marny (Kimberly J. Brown), a normal, or so we thought, 13 year old girl who is shunned off from the Halloween holiday from her mom claiming she has reasons for this. But Marny just loves Halloween, like someone in the movie says, Halloween was like made for her. Her younger sister also enjoys the Holiday but isn't in the 'know' of how fun it can be because her mom has done a good job of making sure they don't celebrate it at all (which means no trick or treating, no decorations), the only one in the family who sides with there mom is Marny's brother who is a bit of a goody, smart too-shoes.

This DVD is a two-for package that includes the first two films of the Halloween Town series that aired on the Disney Channel. These two films kept all the major actors from the first film which helps give the series a bit of continuity.

In HALLOWEENTOWN, Marnie Cromwell (Kimberly J. Brown) is a thirteen-year-old girl who is slightly obsessed with what her friends call, "weird stuff", basically the occult: witches, vampires, werewolves, ancient writings, strange symbols, etc. Her mother, Gwen (Judith Hoag), doesn't approve of Marnie's pastime activities and also doesn't allow any of her children, Marnie, Dylan (Joey Zimmerman), and Sophie (Emily Roeske) to attend Halloween parties or go trick or treating. Dylan thinks it has something to do with the fact that their mother and late father met each other at Halloween and that the holiday has become sensitive for their mother. However, every year Gwen's mother, Aggie (Debbie Reynolds) stops by Gwen's home and brings gifts, candy, and costumes for the children. On her 13th Halloween, Marnie overhears her mother and grandmother discusses that their family is an old and famous witch family (the Cromwells) and that if Marnie doesn't begin practicing and studying before the end of the year, she will loose her powers. Marnie and her siblings follow Aggie back to her home in Halloweentown (a much more colorful place than the town of the same name in A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS) and help her in defeating a mysterious "dark thing" that is trying to rule Halloweentown and destroy humans.

HALLOWEENTOWN II: KALABAR'S REVENGE begins two years after HALLOWEENTOWN ended. Marnie has been practicing her magic under the tutelage of her mother and grandmother for almost two years.
