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.

The set only contains one disc which contains both movies and bonus features titled "The Magic of the Halloweentown Movies" (a behind the scenes peek at Halloweentown, Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge, and Halloweentown High), and "Twitches" (where twins Tia and Tamera Mowry from "Sister, Sister" chat about their Disney Channel Original Movie, "Twitches".
The story centers around a young girl, Marnie (Kimberley J. Brown) who on her 13th birthday, discovers she is descended from a line of witches including her eccentric grandmother Aggie (Debbie Reynolds). Grrandma brings her through a secret portal to Halloweentown, a place where ghosts, ghouls, witches, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures live in a world set apart from the world of the humans. Before long, Marnie and her grandmother as well as a group of friends find themselves battling the powers of darkness, led by an evil warlock named Kalabar. In the second installment, Kalabar's son returns to seek vengeance and his target is Marnie, her family, and the rest of the citizens of Halloweentown.
Halloweentown's running time is approx. 84 minutes (color) and Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge runs approx. 81 minutes (in color). There is no subtitle option on both movies. This is family friendly viewing but due to some scary images of supernatural creatures, I would recommend the viewing age be at least 7 and up.
