Looks like this town is always under attack! The residents of Halloweentown might want to relocate. The Cromwell Family is back and puberty hit them hard. These kids are big as hell now. A new threat (sort of) has arisen in the form of magical curses.
This time the natives of Halloweentown are targeted more so than humans. The situation seems a lot more dire. A very powerful warlock is corrupting magic and cursing humans. We see some returning characters and some of them have a fresh coat of paint. You’ll see what I mean.
I got big Scooby-Doo vibes from this story. It’s a step-up from the first movie. The dialogue is a lot more witty and the evil creatures are ugly. I found myself exclaiming, “WTF is that?” Halloweentown II was made for the older kids who saw the original. I enjoyed it and give it a 6.5 out of 10.
