The teenage witch returns, but she looks a little different.
Performer Kiernan Shipka, "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" is a very different interpretation of Sabrina Spellman than the 90s comedy "Sabrina the Teenage Witch". But that does not mean that the old version should not be revisited. And while you're at it, how about some more witches?
In honor of the release of "Chilling" and Halloween Weekend, we recommend these five TV shows and movies with our favorite witches. Whether you want to laugh, be enthusiastic or want to be totally scared, we have a witch for you.
If you want a nostalgia tour: & # 39; Sabrina the Teenage Witch & # 39;
The new version of "Sabrina" on Netflix is less a reboot of the Melissa Joan Hart version and more a very different show that follows the comic's horror roots more closely. It allows the two shows to live together in harmony, and seeing the original again is an incredible amount of fun. From the silly special effects to the hunts of Aunt Hilda (Caroline Rhea) and Aunt Zelda (Beth Broderick) to the punchy Harvey (Nate Richert), "Teenage Witch" is the epitome of a TGIF classic.
Stream it on Amazon.
If you love the 90s: & # 39; Charmed & # 39;
The new CW version of "Charmed" does not quite capture the charm of the original. But do not worry, all eight seasons of the original are available to stream. There's nothing better than the mix of camp and soap drama that brought "Charmed" to life, not to mention an endless supply of crop tops. Whether you like the sisterly trio of Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, or Alyssa Milano, or the years Rose McGowan stepped in, the Power of Three will definitely set you free.
Stream it on Netflix.
If you like the lime in the coconut: & # 39; Practical Magic & # 39;
One of the best films about witches is also one of the best films about sisters. This cult classic from the 90s follows the gentle Sally (Sandra Bullock) and the wild Gillian (Nicole Kidman), who flee to their hometown in Massachusetts after killing Gillian's abusive friend. Come for the spell, stay for the notorious midnight margaritas scene.
Stream it on HBOGo / Now.
If you want to feel like a child again: & # 39; Hocus Pocus & # 39;
Look, we do not have to tell you that "Hocus Pocus" is great, especially if you're a millennium of a certain age. And we do not even have to tell you how to stream it, as it routinely routinely plays cable in October. But for the small percentage of you who have never seen it, or have not seen it since childhood, it's worth revisiting the kitsch extravagance of witches and magic. It's a comedy that can still scare a few kids, and Kathy Najimy, Bette Midler, and Sarah Jessica Parker play their cackling witch trio with such joy, their enthusiasm is incredibly contagious.
Rent or buy at Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu or YouTube.
If you really want to be scared: & # 39; the witch & # 39;
Witches can be a lot of fun, but they can also be frightening. This seventeenth-century horror movie plays on the fear of society of young women and their burgeoning sexuality, and makes all the clichés we know about witches scary again. The psychological horror that engulfs a small homestead when a baby is missing is almost as frightening as anything that happens in the stunning final act of the movie. The film also brought Anya Taylor-Joy closer to the world, a star that ever emerged.
Stream it on Netflix.
