This was THE halloween movie of my childhood. For my brother it was the great pumpkin, for me it was Mr. Boogedy-- there are so many things I love about this movie. The individually wrapped cheese slices and John Astin's facial hair being just a couple... It's one of those movies none of my few elementary school friends ever heard of. They had older brothers that watched Halloween or Nightmare on Elm Street, or they were obsessed with The Witches come Halloween night.
I wish they'd come out with it on DVD. A double feature pack with Bride of Boogedy (which in my opinion was sub-par without John Astin as Mr. Witherspoon, but whatchya gonna do?) Until then, I shall do with my Disney pirated copy included the last half of Which Witch is Witch? and vintage Disney Channel commercials for The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with Jeff Goldblum and other classics like Blackbeards Ghost. Remember when Disney played their movies instead of locking them up in vaults?
