Halloweentown High, just premiering last week on the Disney Channel was a lighthearted family feature. Watching it, anyone would realize that this film was not out to grab a best picture nomination at the Oscars. However, for what it's supposed to be, Halloweentown High proves to be a film that children will enjoy to watch. With a wide fan base of children of all ages from the first two films, you can see why the Disney Channel is playing the movie several times all month.
While I read over a few of the comments made on the movie, I was perplexed at how some young girls went completely crazy over it, while others took out enough time to write a full essay on how horrible it was. As a movie for children, it's supposed to be cheesy; so expect that and you will find yourself pleasantly surprised.
