Supersonic, idiotic, disconnecting, not respecting, who would really ever wanna go and top that?

27 Oct

Finally, Halloween is so close I can already feel my teeth preemptively rotting. I may be unable to trick-or-treat (because I am 21 and also childless) but, I have found a way to get my kicks elsewhere; in Halloween movies, obviously.

It seems to me, that the greatest mix between teenagers and magic can be found in one movie, Teen Witch (1989). Twenty years ago, before Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Hollywood felt teenage girls between the ages of 13-18 were missing a heroine they could relate to. The boys had teen wolf, but what magical creature could young women idolize? They found the answer in Louis Miller (Robyn Elaine Lively, big sister of Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively) high school outcast and soon to be pubescent paranormal sorceress.

In the movie, Louise happens to stumble across a magical crystal that gives her the power to be the most popular girl in the school, date her crush, and meet her favorite pop-star. With a plot this good it is hard to understand why syndication of the film is at an all time low.

In recent TW news, Ashley Tisdale is rumored to be the next Louise Miller in a remake sometime in 2010…gag me with a spoon. Really United Artists, you are ready to ruin another perfectly good movie by plastering Tisdale all over the screen? Get real, Tisdale will never be able to fill the keds of Robyn Elaine Lively, I doubt her anorexic physic could even support the weight of Zelda Rubinstein’s purple crystal. Lively has been appearing in T.V. constantly since Teen Witch in 1989 in such shows as Doogie Howser, M.D. , Twin Peaks, and most recently Saving Grace.

Teen Witch, I miss your glam bedazzled jean jackets, your frizzy teased hair supported by hairspray and scrunchies and your hella-hip 80s soundtrack, featuring the musical styling’s of Dude-itude.

Teen Witch, I miss your face- Shassie.
