Why the Worst Witch is important to Culture

Have you ever wondered what digital effects were available to a low-budget tv-movie production crew in the mid 1980’s? Lucky you, because one of my favoritest movies from my childhood, The Worst Witch, answers that question in just a three minute song about what is possible on Halloween:

Fantastic.

I wish I could remember if I thought Tim Curry was creepy in this movie as I do now–he sort of has a David-Bowie-in-Labyrinth vibe, you know? I totally love Tim Curry though—have you listened to any of A Series of Unfortunate Events on audio??? so good that I think I have only read actually one of the books because listening to them just feels so right.

    Yeah the “Worst Witch” is definately my favorite 80’s Halloween staple. Although “Teen Witch” is another cheesy Halloween 80’s guilty pleasure!
