THE PLOT THUS FAR
Sabrina (Tisdale), everyone’s favorite half-human, half-witch, is back in a magical movie adventure filled with spells, excitement and tons of fun. When a magic jacket turns Sabrina’s friend Harvey into an uncontrollable werewolf, Sabrina’s off on a wild chase between the human and witch worlds to stop his rampage. Join Sabrina on her bewitching escapade to find a cure and save the day!
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“A Witch and the Werewolf” is an attempt to revamp Sabrina for a new generation. Honestly, the Archie comics just turned her into the bride of Cthulhu. I don’t know if there’s any possible way to top that. This adventures opens on Sabrina’s pal Harvey getting turned into a werewolf. It turns out that his jacket is enchanted and Sabrina must find a way around it. The typical hi-jinks happens and Sabrina learns to exercise better control over her magic. Typical witchcraft for the kiddie set.
Tisdale makes for an admirable Sabrina. That being said, there’s not a lot you can do with the character without turning her into a reject from “The Craft”. While most of the movie plays like a lost episode of the old show, there’s something about it that feels excessively tailored towards kids. It’s not like they stopped the show to have people get slimed or listen to the Biebs. Maybe, it’s a sign that I’m growing older. Everything about youth makes them seem like infants, while I wonder when the Matlock is going to come back on the air. This DVD aged me.
The DVD comes with a music video as the only special feature. The A/V Quality is typical for this kind of presentation. The Dolby 2.0 stereo track does what it can. The same goes for the transfer. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to parents of young kids.
