Decent Disney Halloween Movie

  • Dec 6, 2007
Rating:
+3
Pros: Family friendly with decent special effects

Cons: Lacks extras on the DVD

The Bottom Line: Great family movie to watch in October, although makes no difference if you catch it on the Disney Channel or actually get the DVD.

Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot.

This movie is based on a book, however it does not seem to connect the story in the book exactly, but then again maybe that is just my distorted memory of the book that I read years before I saw the movie. I did enjoy the movie, though, however it does have some slow parts and seemingly pointless fluff to make it longer. The basic plot is about two twins meeting each other for the first time on their 21st birthday and learning that they are from another dimension. It then begins there quest together to save their original world and restore peace. I thought the special effects were pretty good for being a television movie and then DVD release. It is definitely a good family film, although it may not be appropriate for some young ones as it does have some scary moments. The DVD edition does not have all that many extras, which is kind of disappointing. They do at least have a fun alternate ending that makes the second Twitches movie seem more appropriate. They also have a decent behind the magic thing that explains some of the special effects, however it is not entirely new, as it appears that they originally were specials shorts on the Disney Channel.

About this movie

Wiki

This Disney-channel original movie stars Tia and Tamara Towry of SISTER, SISTER as identical twin sisters separated at birth. Being twins isn't all that makes these two special, however: they're also witches. Growing up without each another, the two were always confused by their powers. It's only on their 21st birthday when the girls reunite that those powers are able to take full form.
