Halloween 2017: Siblings & Scares Double Feature – Mom’S Got A Date With A Vampire and Hocus Pocus

  • DailyDead
[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Check here for more double feature recommendations and other Halloween 2017 coverage.]

There’s nothing quite like an outside threat to bring a family together, especially when that threat is of the undead variety. Siblings may not always get along, but when your sister’s soul is sought by a coven of witches, or when your mom is eyed as an eternal bride by a coffin-dwelling creep, it’s time to take those Sister Sledge lyrics to heart and become a family that can overcome anything—including wicked spells and sharp fangs. Set on respective fateful nights where the future of a homestead hangs in the balance and its up to siblings to save it, Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire and Hocus Pocus are family-friendly films that make for a great double feature during the Halloween season.

Newswire: Here’s what’s coming to (and going from) Hulu in April

  • The AV Club
We’re only halfway through Hulu’s unofficial Karate Month celebration, and the streaming service has already announced the new titles you’ll be able to stream in April. Sadly, there isn’t as much of a clear theme as there was for March, but Hulu is getting the premiere of the highly anticipated adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale at the end of the month. Maybe rampant, apocalyptic misogyny is the theme? Barely any of the new movies or TV shows fit into that mold, but isn’t everything about rampant, apocalyptic misogyny in a way?

Misogyny aside, Hulu will also be adding the three original RoboCop movies, Michael Showalter’s Hello, My Name Is Doris, The Babadook, and the Disney Channel originals Johnny Tsunami and The Even Stevens Movie. Plus, you’ll finally be able to watch the premiere of Dimension 404, Hulu’s star ...

[DVD Review] High School Musical: Remix

If only real-life high school had been for me what it is for the student body of the fictitious Albuquerque of High School Musical. No real-life adolescence could remotely begin to replicate the smiles on the faces of these students. You know why? Because this is Disney. In all Disney Channel Original’s there are small obstacles that must be overcome, sure, but by the end the plastic characters always reach euphoria, and life settles into that easy going routine that could never be achieved anywhere else.

The story starts with the “it” boy, the star basketball player of a team going to the championship game, and a new girl who’s always been known as the brainiest in the class. Their first two encounters are a throwback to another high school musical, the 1978 song and dance flick Grease.

Troy Bolton (Zac Efron) and Gabriella Montez (Vanessa Hudgens) meet during winter vacation,
