The Magickal movies I love are a mixed bag. I love Practical Magic....The Craft...The Crucible...I even love Hocus Pocus...it's one of my fave Halloween movies. The Witches of Eastwick, The Butchers Wife and even the Good Witch (Halmark movie). Really a fun movie. These are my faves....

We don't really have a large selection to choose from.

 

The other night, the original "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" movie aired (which launched the TV series), I was struck by some similarities to Practical Magic in some respects: Namely, Sabrina being raised by two aunts who are witches, in a large Victorian home. The rest was bubblegum though, of course. Although, I could dig a cat like Salem.

I love Howl's Moving Castle, and Pan's Labyrinth for its take on fairy tales and folklore. It also has some hints of folk magic, when Ophelia took a mandrake root in a bowl of milk under her mother's bed to cure her of her pregnancy pains.

When I was younger I loved the movie "Teen Witch".. no affiliation with Sabrina. It used to be one of my favorites.

Practical magic reminds me of my bestfriend, and always makes me smile. Pan's Labyrinth is an Amazing movie!! I could watch it again and again.

For movies it's The Craft and Teen Witch. Just love both of those. Sabrina the Teenage Witch pilot movie I have never had the chance to see. From what I heard that was really good.

Now I'll have to get Pan's Labyrinth! I've heard about it, I see it in Wally world (Walmart) everytime I go there.

 

It's a damn shame that they never made Practical magic into a TV series - it very, very, nearly was, but fell through at the last moment. That would've been great..

I absolutely love Practical Magic, too. The others that are awesome IMO are The Craft, The Covenant, Kiki's Delivery Service, Spirited Away, The Skeleton Key, etc. I could totally see these movies over and over again.

I think I tend to be drawn to any movie dealing with witchcraft. Weather they are dead on to some degree or not. I have a fondness for all that were mentioned. Te Covenant kinda of left you hanging at the end for a second one...wonder if there will be.

They announced in 2007 there would be a sequel, but as its been 3 years maybe its a dead duck now.

I have only seen one of these movies I think, is the craft the one where all the girls turn on one over a guy??? If so that's the only one I have seen, I don't watch too much tv.

Also Stardust (it's over the top but fun!)

 

I would also add The Golden Compass although it's not outright witchcraft, the ideas suppressed by the major religion because of the threat it poses has some similarities to witchcraft history.

 

Loved Howls and Pans Labyrinth. They're up there with my normal favourites - Good Night and Good Luck as well as The Lives of Others.

I watched The Covenant the other day, and thought it was OK. I would be so old if I had their powers!

 

STILL not got round to watching Practical Magic! Everytime I pick it up it just makes me thinks its a chick flick so I put it down again. Anything in it for males (apart from the female leads)?

 

I started making a list of witchy/magic/pagan type movies. Here is what I got.

 


  •  
  • Practical magic
  • the witches of eastwick
  • hocus pocus
  • bewitched
  • The Craft
  • Stardust
  • Bell Book and Candle
  • The Covenant
  • The Crucible
  • The Witches
  • Elvira 1 & 2
  • Matilda
  • Sabrina
  • Blair Witch
  • Buffy (Willow!)
  • Charmed
  • Teen Witch
  • Lion Witch & Wardrobe
  • Worst Witch
  • Wizard Of Oz/Return To Oz
  • Nanny McPhee 1 and 2
  • Pufnstuf
  • Harry Potter 1 to 7
  • Prestige
  • The Illusionist
  • Eko Eko Azarak 1-3
  • Witchcraft 1 to 12!
  • Witches Night
  • I Married A Witch
  • Snow White: A Tale of Terror
  • Witchfinder General
  • Witchwise
  • The Dark Secret of Harvest Home
  • Mists Of Avalon

 

If I miss any, quote this post and add to the list! I have a project in mind ;)
