Don’t know what Halloweentown is? Read on…you need to know a few things….
Ok, what it is all about is that Halloweentown was filmed in St. Helens Oregon the Disney film centers around Marnie Cromwell (Kimberly J. Brown), a young teenager who finds herself oddly fascinated with the mythical, magical, and mysterious. That’s a problem, because her mother, Gwen (Judith Hoag), harbors an equally puzzling disdain for the very same things, and most especially Halloween, which just happens to be the day on which the story begins (and ends). Her younger and wittier brother, Dylan (Joey Zimmerman), is even more cynical when it comes to the non-scientific. Sophie (Emily Roeske), the youngest Cromwell, is more like-minded with her older sister, but age is an obstacle in their bonding.
It’s Marnie’s grandmother, Aggie Cromwell (screen legend Debbie Reynolds), with whom she can readily identify. Much like Marnie herself, the eccentric Aggie doesn’t get along with Gwen, and the fact that she visits the family on only one day a year- Halloween- and brings plenty of mischievously festive treats along with her only serves to aggravate their quarrelsome relationship. The plot thickens from there and if you are reading this now you need to rent or buy the movie on Amazon today.
