Growing up, this film got me in the spirit even more than trick-or-treating. So, I decided to celebrate the spooky season by watching my favorite Halloween movie for the first time as an adult!
Here are all the thoughts that flew through my head while I was watching it:
Wow! Marnie is starting us off with some SASS.
But I am definitely digging her sheer, yellow button-up and colorful scrunchie. How ’90s!
If you don’t like Halloween, you can’t be my friend. Sorry, Marnie’s brother, those are the rules.
Marnie’s sister is such a mood here.
So the mom was just gonna hide Marnie’s powers until they went away forever? I suspect that would have led to a lifetime of trust issues once her daughter found out.
Ayyy, we made it to Halloweentown! But I kinda wish Marnie left Dylan at home. He’s dragging down the vibe.
LOL, this joke flew over my head as a kid.
Call me old-fashioned, but I am not a fan of witches making potions in the microwave.
Ohhhh, sick burn, Marnie.
I’m legit gonna start calling everyone I don’t like wieners from now on.
I feel like keeping a caged crow in the corner of your office is a good indicator that you’re low-key a creep.
Does Kalabar always keep a single dead rose on his desk in case a pretty lady comes by?
Nooo, don’t fall for it, Grandma!!
Can I just say how much I love this nickname?
HA! Monster-Kalabar telling Luke to shut up is so satisfying.
Ooh la la! This hairdresser is welcome to trim my shrub anytime.
Sophie lets the dog off his leash to chase away the skeleton?! This girl is a GENIUS.
Wow, Soph saves the day again! No offense, Marnie, but your little sister is really stealing the show right now.
Hell yeah! Marnie’s out here taking a stand against fuckboys everywhere!
How come Monster-Kalabar can chill in the sunlight now when it hurt him before? This should have been explained.
Why is he acting like he’s such a prize? Honestly confused here.
Marnie, you are a queen, but your insults need some work, girl.
Ummm, excuse me. How did I never notice Grandma casually strolling up to the jack-o’-lantern and plopping Merlin’s talisman in? Are you telling me Marnie crawled up there and fainted on top of the pumpkin for nothing?!!
Nooo, Marnie! Don’t give in! Luke doesn’t deserve your magical kisses!
Remembering my VHS collection is making me feel really old, guys.
Okay, this kid has been a good guy for like two seconds. Why are we trusting him to safely transport dozens of people across worlds?
And Grandma’s moving to the mortal world so my favorite Cromwell witches can stay together! What a ~magical~ ending.
Well, this movie was even better than I remembered! After all these years, Marnie is still a boss ass witch.
