Movie Review- Halloweentown

Movie Review: Taylor Smith

"You can't tell what's in a monster's heart just by looking at 'em. I mean, sometimes, some of the slimiest, raunchiest, ugliest little monsters turn out to be the nicest." This is my absolute favorite quote from the movie Halloweentown. I chose to do a review over this movie because Halloween festivities are just beginning, and this movie teaches an amazing overall lesson.

Halloweentown became a hit with its Disney premiere in 1998. Audiences of all ages fell in love with this movie, making it a Halloween classic. Throughout the movie ,Marnie Cromwell discovers she is a witch. The Cromwell family line, as it turns out, is the most powerful clan of witches in Halloweentown-- a world that lies in a different realm and has served as home to the creatures of Halloween since their split from Earth centuries prior. After a disastrous event, Marie ends up saving Halloweentown. This movie teaches a very valuable lesson shown in the previously mentioned quote. It does not matter how someone looks on the outside, it only matters what is on the inside. To me I think this is something everyone needs to learn. Halloweentown is definitely a movie I recommend.
