(Family Friendly) Halloween Horror: Halloweentown High

Hello, hello!
Welcome to my review of part III in the Halloweentown franchise. After this, we have one more movie to go and that’ll conclude my family-friendly alternatives for Halloween.

The Plot (as found on Rotten Tomatoes):

Marnie and her friends from Halloweentown are back in this made-for-cable feature. Marnie (Kimberly J. Brown) is a teenage witch living with her family of supernatural beings in the village of Halloweentown. Marnie and her pals are interested in attending high school in the nearby mortal community, where they’ll be able to spend more time with kids their age, and with the help of her grandmother Aggie (Debbie Reynolds), she’s able to convince the town council to go along with the suggestion. However, there’s a catch — if anything dangerous happens as a result of their presence in the mortal school, Marnie and her friends will lose their magical talents. Trouble does make its way to the school, but not in a way anyone expected — the Knight of the Iron Dagger comes to the mortal world determined to wipe out Marnie and her magical companions. 

The Rating:

FINN WITTROCK is in this film and I completely forgot about it.
I thought this is some important info all of you should have. Now back to the review.

I actually quite enjoyed the story of Halloweentown High and we’re finally getting somewhere. The number of plotholes is decreasing and this movie was slightly less cringe-worthy than the last one!

However, there are still some very irritating moments. I need to describe one of those to you and please tell whether I’m the only one who thought this was weird!
So, Marnie’s brother kind of has a crush on one of the girls from Halloweentown. Until it turns out she’s a troll aka pink and super hairy. When he has a weird reaction she tells him that she’s beautiful and he’s an asshole for treating her differently now and blablabla. They seem to have overcome that and are about to kiss at the end when eventually they both decide against ’cause it would just be too weird and disgusting. Ahm, excuse me?!

Anyway, that being said the costumes still looked rather cheap and somewhat tacky but I’m not even expecting anything better at this point.

This is an improvement from the last film! Although it’s still no masterpiece it’s a decent flick to watch and actually makes sense!

Did you watch this film? Let me know in the comments!
