Years later, I've realized the main characters of this Halloween classic are actually little bullies. I also always considered myself a fan of the good ol' classic, Double Double Toil and Trouble.
As a lifelong consumer of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen content fashion includedI remember being a huge fan as a kid, and wishing I could go on a similar witchy adventure. But viewing it as an adult?
Well, let's just say it's a lot different. If you need a refresher on the made-for-TV film, MK and A play Kelly and Lynn, two little girls who are extremely tired of doing everything together. However, the meat of the story is actually sad.
Their parents are having money trouble and might lose their house, so, the mom and dad pay a visit to Aunt Agatha to ask for money. You might want to switch to decaf!
But thinking about two kids straight-up roasting someone makes me cringe what do they even know about coffee?! Once Kelly and Lynn learn about the fate of their house, they decide they should go to the witch gathering, get the moonstone, break the curse, and help their parents.
The olsen twins' made-for-tv halloween movie came out 25 years ago
They run away while trick-or-treating and bump into Mr. The real scene that ruined this movie for me, though, happens after Aunt Agatha kidnaps Kelly and jets off to her house. Lynn, unsure where, exactly, this house is located, realizes she actually knows where Gravedigger lives, and decides that he has to help them.
Seriously, she gives him no choice.
The dark. Gravedigger all alone in the dark. Everyone's just being bullied and blindly taking orders from little girls with their baby teeth still intact.
It makes no sense. It's a bold move, and I do respect it. Although, the twins did manage to fit an awful lot into that minute time crunch before midnight.
Silly, I know, but Cloris Leachman! She really nailed that role. Obviously, this realization just means that Double Double is bit further down on my list of Halloween must-watches.
It still brings back good memories, which is half the reason I love these movies in the first place, and I'll likely turn it on at least one more time before the spooky season ends. By Samantha Sutton Oct 19, am.
