Welcome back to the Cult Film Club as we head out to the Concession Stand for a very special Halloween treat! In this extra episode of the show Jaime, Pax and Shawn jump on our broomsticks and enroll in Ms. Cackle’s Academy for Witches as we discuss the 1986 HBO Halloween special, The Worst Witch!
We talk about the stars (including Tim Curry, Fairuza Balk, Diana Rigg, and the recently departed Charlotte Rae), the cheesy 80s era special effects, The Grand Wizards missing tambourine, earnest failures, and Charlotte Rae’s weird deep Alabama accent. So before we’re all turned into toads, take a moment to join us as we dig into this rad piece of Halloween fun.
