Has anybody seen my tambourine?
14 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

Growing up, I used to watch this kids TV movie every year on Halloween. It features a very young Fairuza Balk ("Return to Oz," "The Craft"), a very flamboyant Tim Curry, and Mrs Garrett from "Facts of Life." But, God,is this awful. I can't believe I didn't notice how terrible it was! The special effects are so bad enough to make anyone laugh through the whole movie. The "bad" witches' costumes are worse than the kind you'd find in a Halloween chain store. But I have fond memories of it so it has a place in my heart. Also, it is nice to see movies that portray witches as normal and good. Not so nice to see pre-teen girls fawning in ecstasy over Tim Curry with a tambourine.
