Louise is not very popular at her high school. Then she learns that she's descended from the witches of Salem and has inherited their powers. At first she uses them to get back at the girls and teachers who teased her and to win the heart of the handsome footballer's captain. But soon she has doubts if it's right to 'cheat' her way to popularity. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Did You Know?


According to Robyn Lively during an interview at the screening of Teen Witch at San Francisco's Sketch Fest (2016), the interior of Madam Serena's house was filmed on a sound stage. So, whenever she exits the front of the house, she had to imitate the motion of walking down the steps. See more »

Fun 80's teen movie
7 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

I can't help it--I love this movie. It's so adorably cliché and predictable that I get a kick out of it every time that I see it. The soundtrack is great 80's pop, and the songs keep playing in my head long after the movie's over. What teen girl hasn't wished she could "magically" put the "snobby cheerleader" in her place and walk away with the popular guy? Louise gets that chance when she inherits her powers on her 16th birthday and uses them to make herself "the most popular girl." Yes, it's a bit silly in spots, but it has fun dance numbers and great 80's hairstyles and clothes. If you love the 80's, you will enjoy this movie!
