The Worst Witch  

Posted by: Isabel in , ,

Mildred Hubble (Fairuza Balk) is the flunk-out of the Witch's Academy--that is until she gets her big chance to show everyone just how much magic she can make! The school's headmistress Agatha (Charlotte Rae) has an evil twin, who is plotting to cause havoc just before the big Halloween celebration and visit by the Grand Wizard (Tim Curry). Can Mildred find a way to stop this plot before it ruins the party? This family fantasy features a stellar cast, including Diana Rigg and Tim Curry, as well as plenty of enchanting action.

My sister and I used to watch this movie every year when it came on HBO around Halloween time. I saw it on netflix and had to watch it.

Oh my. The story is cute. It's about Mildred who no matter how hard she tries, she can't get her spells right. She's a little clumsy and well she's the worst witch in the school. Instead of having a black kitten, she gets the white and grey kitten.

Then there is perfect Ethel who loves to pick on poor Mildred. When Mildred makes broom squad (kind of like cheer leading), Ethel puts a spell on her broom so Mildred messes up. Right in front the Grand Wizard.

Again, the story is cute. The special effects, horrible. The music is that cheesy 80's music. I was like.. wow. That is just bad. Lol. Like the flying scene, you know it's in front of a blue screen. Not like Harry Potter.

Anyways, it was a nice trip down memory lane.
