The teenage witch is coming back, but she looks a little different.
Starring Kiernan Shipka, "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" is a quite different version of Sabrina Spellman than from the 90s comedy "Sabrina the Teenage Witch." But that does not mean that the previous version is not worth visiting again. And while you're at that, how about visiting some more witches?
In honor of the release of "Chilling" and the weekend of Halloween, we recommend these five television shows and movies starring our favorite witches. Whether you want to laugh, be excited or be totally terrified, 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 Melissa Joan Hart's version and more a completely different show that more closely follows the horror roots of the comic. It allows the two shows to live together in harmony, and revisiting the original is an incredible amount of fun. From the ridiculous special effects to the antics of Aunt Hilda (Caroline Rhea) and Aunt Zelda (Beth Broderick) to the hunky Harvey (Nate Richert), "Teenage Witch" is the epitome of a TGIF classic.
Transmit it on Amazon.
If you like the 90s: & # 39; Charmed & # 39;
CW's new version of "Charmed" does not capture the charm of the original. But do not worry, the eight seasons of the original are available to broadcast. There's nothing like the mix of telenovela and soap opera drama that made "Charmed" tick, not to mention an endless supply of crop tops. If you are partial to the brother trio of Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs and Alyssa Milano or you like the years Rose McGowan intervened, Power of Three will definitely set you free.
Transmit it on Netflix.
If you like lime in the coconut: & # 39; Practical magic & # 39;
One of the best films about witches is also one of the best films about sorority. This cult classic of the 90s follows the docile Sally (Sandra Bullock) and the savage Gillian (Nicole Kidman) who flee to her hometown of Massachusetts after killing Gillian's abusive boyfriend. Come for the magic, stay for the infamous scene of the midnight daisies.
Transmit it in 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 necessarily have to tell you how to transmit it, since it usually plays on cable repeatedly during the month of October. However, for the small percentage of you who have never seen it, or have not seen it since childhood, it is worth checking out the extravagant spectacle of witches and magic. It is a comedy that could still scare some children, and Kathy Najimy, Bette Midler and Sarah Jessica Parker play their trio of witches with such joy, their enthusiasm is incredibly contagious.
Rent it or buy it on Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu or YouTube.
If you want to be really terrified: & # 39; The witch & # 39;
Witches can be very funny, but they can also be horrible. This horror film set in the seventeenth century is based on society's fear of young women and their growing sexuality, while making all the clichés we know about witches fearful again. The psychological horror that seizes a small farm when a baby disappears is almost as terrifying as everything that happens in the final act of the film. The movie also introduced the world to Anya Taylor-Joy, a budding star, if we've ever seen her.
Transmit it on Netflix.
