In high school, popularity is the goal for many a young girl. But being popular in high school is not all that it is cracked up to be.
In Teen Witch (1989), Louise (Robyn Lively) is unpopular. She is either ignored or teased. Then Louise discovers that she has magical powers. Her powers come from the ancestors, the Witches Of Salem. First, she will use her powers to get back at the popular girls who mocked her and her teachers who abused her. Once that score has been settled, Louise uses her powers to make the football team captain Brad Powell (Dan Gauthier) fall for her. The question is, once Louise has used her powers, she begins to question if it was the right thing to do.
This movie has all of the hallmarks of the typical teenage movie from the 1980’s. But there is something more to this movie, especially with the message of what is important and what is not important.
I recommend it.
