Day 4: 31 Days of Horror: Teen Witch

Teen Witch (1989) is about a teenage girl, Louise Miller (Robyn Lively), who has always been treated as though she's a loser. She's mocked by a teacher and the popular cheerleader crowd at her high school on a weekly basis. All she wants is to be is popular and for the cutest guy in school, Brad Powell, to fall in love with her. Before her 16th birthday, she ends up meeting Madame Serena (Zelda Rubenstein) who informs her that she is a witch and will receive her powers the night of her 16th birthday. Once she gets her powers, she decides to use them to get back at those who were always mean to her and to make herself the most popular girl in school. She also uses them to make Brad fall in love with her. However, after a while, she realizes that she basically cheated to get everything that she wanted. What will she do?

Ok, so Teen Witch may not be a horror film per se. Unless, of course, you are afraid of 80's fashion and hairstyles, frighteningly annoying little brothers, horrific uses of corniness, and unexplainable musical bits. However, I still think it should be included into 31 Days of Horror because it's a Halloween themed sort of movie and it's fun. I love this movie because of it's ridiculousness. It's awesomely terrible. It's awesomely hilarious. Watch it and find out for yourself!
