I don’t do many product reviews here, but it’s October and I’m feeling like getting into the DVDs.


    There are always the classics . . . I like to keep my collection family friendly . . . and I’m in my second childhood.

    This double feature set of Halloweentown and Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge is a great adventure for Marnie and her family. They delve into a world of ghosts, ghouls, witches, warlocks, werewolves, evil curses and so very much more.

    This Disney classic gives a wholesome message regarding the power of family, cooperation and perseverance.

    Halloweentown/Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge Double Feature is for ages 5 years and older. It is a must have for your family Halloween viewing. And don’t forget Halloweentown High and Return to Halloweentown.

    Next up is Twitches with Tia and Tamera Mowry.


    This is truly an enchanting story. Two ordinary girls who discover they are powerful witches from another dimension separated at birth. This was a Disney Channel Original Movie, so it is suitable for the whole family.

    I’m not usually into scifi, but this gives just the right blend . . . it is a bit quirky, but it is made for children ages 7 years and older. Parental Guidance is suggested.

    Don’t forget to check out Twitches Too.

    Then there’s another classic that comes to mind this time of year . . . You may not need a hint, but I’ll give you not one, but three — Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.

    Yes, indeed, it is none other than Hocus Pocus!!

    These three outlandish witches return from 17th-century Salem, actually by accident from some unsuspecting pranksters, but since the trio of witches are back they’re determined to cast a spell on the town and reclaim their youth. The foes in this are three kids and a talking cat.

    This is fun and crazy Halloween entertainment recommended for ages 7 years and up. It’s also from Disney, which means family friendly.

    Now, where do I want to take you next . . . I was thinking of continuing with the “sister” theme . . . Does any Halloween movie come to mind?

    Are you thinking?

    How about Practical Magic with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman!!


    And we can’t forget the doting aunts played by Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest.

    This is witchcraft at its best . . . This story involves two sisters who live with their aunts and are all believed to be witches. Yet, the Owen women have been cursed . . . This is a movie worth seeing and watching each and every Halloween . . . It’s great to show at your Halloween party!!!

    I do like this one!!

    I have a few more I’ll link to below . . .

    I know I forgot many of your favorites and mine, too, but this is enough for now.

    And you can always explore on your own. You may prefer something more frightening . . .

    Thanks for stopping by!
