Holy crap you guys we love Teen Witch more than just about anything. Released in 1989, Teen Witch taught us the value of a well placed scrunchie, the spell to conjure winds AND how to get the rich man's Tom Cruise to fall in love with you. We ask important questions like: DID Louise and Brad do it in the weird house? ARE Polly and Louise still friends? And most importantly... IS Shana upset that she gave her most prized possession to a random girl she doesn't know? Join us on this magical adventure and sing along with the Sweeties as we round out our Halloween month right! TOP THAT.
Released in 1995, Casper is the sequel to Now and Then, where Devon Sawa's character dies in a sledding incident and comes back to haunt Christina Ricci. Just kidding. It's a movie about a lame white ghost who is friendly and stalks a living human being. Sorry to say, the Sweeties do not like this movie. At all. It's not our fault nothing makes sense and they included too many plot points for their own good. Join us, as we vent about how this movie is too willy nilly about death and complain about how Christina Ricci had a really hard time fake crying in the 90s. Hey, they can't all be hits!
BOOGEDY! BOOGEDY! BOO! We watched Mr. Boogedy every time it came on TV, which probably explains why we have a deep seeded fear of pilgrims and bad wigs. Released in 1986, Mr. Boogedy was part of the Walt Disney's Magical World of Color series and it was a doozy. Hilarious, scary, clever---it has it all! Plus, Kristy Swanson, sticky green footprints, and spooky music. What's not to love!?
Come little listeners, I'll take thee away...into a land of witches and Hocus Pocus! The Sweeties are back to talk about everyone's favorite Halloween flick Hocus Pocus! Released in 1993, The Sanderson Sisters really left us feeling envious of their excellent bosoms and singing ability but we love them all the same. Join us as we struggle to remember Omri Katz's name, sing a lot, AND talk about our favorite parts and what really made us cringe in terror (pointy shoes yuck!). We put a spell on you and now you have to listen....mwahaha!

There's a moment in everyone's life when you realize that one of your favorite childhood flicks is actually a really bad movie. For us that movie is the Worst Witch! Lucky for us though, The Worst Witch is one of those 'So bad it's good' type movies so everybody wins! Released in 1986, and starring a young and sweet Fairuza Balk, The Worst Witch taught us that anyone can write a song--you just need a pen, some paper and a word you can rhyme everything with! Sit back and grab your cat, it's time to get witchy.
What movie brings together Dracula, The Mummy, Wolfman, Gill-man and Frankenstein's Monster?! The cult classic, The Monster Squad! Filmed in way back when 1987, The Monster Squad is a combination monster flick + gang-o-kids movie and is a rollicking good time; scary, yet side splitting with some amazing 80s humor. We'll answer all your need to know questions such as does Wolfman have nards? Is the Mummy a good candidate to have on your monster squad? And what are two ways to kill a vampire? So get your silver bullets and sharpened wooden ready to go. #squadgoals
WITCHES-WORK-ONLY-WITH-MAGIC! And so does the Large Marge Sent Us Podcast. Join us as we kick off October right with one of the scariest movies you saw as a child. Released in 1990 The Witches brought us nightmares in the form of Anjelica Houston's purple laser eyes and Roald Dahl's creepy AF witch mythos. You'll never look at little old ladies and their ugly square shoes the same ever again! Happy Halloween you guys!
