Three sentence movie reviews: Teen Witch

teen witch

I was watching this 1989 feature for period details, of which there were many.  However, unless you also are interested in period details, I cannot recommend this movie, as the plot is insipid and the soundtrack is horrendous.*  And someone could probably write a thesis about movies portraying witches that end with them giving up their powers.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home.

*Interestingly, the acting is not bad.

  1. I had no idea this was ever a movie. In my head, I was thinking it was related to that teen witch TV show, but after looking it up, I’m going to assume that I’m wrong. I’m curious, why did she give up her powers? Was it for a man?

    1. It was indeed for a man. Well, I guess not officially. She could cast a spell to make someone like her, but she decided she wanted them to like her on her own. Why did she need to give up all her powers instead of just not casting that spell? Hmm. Maybe the patriarchy?

      I suspect this was originally a TV movie, or a straight-to-video movie.

  2. I might have seen this in the theater back in the day. I love that it was like an 1989 throwback. That must have been fun, since the plot was not.
