There is something very unique and quirky about the Disney Channel original Halloween Movies—fun—do not pretend to be anything else but kooky and never take themselves seriously. And the Halloween Town movies with Debbie Reynolds are so very special now that she is gone. As an adult, I am not ashamed to admit I own all the Halloween town movies, The Scream Team, Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire, Now You See it, Hocus Pocus and others. They are fit the scare bill more often than the “slasher-gore films” now being produced. A bit a of a laugh, a bit of a scare, and all comes out fun in the end. I wish Disney would produce a lot more of these films. Adults need to find the “inner-child“ again—and with these movies, you do not need a child with you to discover what you left behind---you just need to let go of the adult. Go, find these movies and enjoy.
I love this silly, over-the-top movie. It’s super cheesy and cute and I was so glad to finally see it available for purchase after so long. I love all the Phantom adaptations and this one is really light hearted and has no mean-spirited humor. Just cheesy and fun.
