On April 22nd, 2014 Hallmark released The Good Witch's Garden on DVD from Cinedigm! Originally, when I first heard the new Hallmark Movie Channel Original, I figured it would be something super natural for Alana to enjoy since she is into these types of films.
The synopsis says "Return to Middletown in this sequel to The Good Witch, part of an ongoing story following the magical Cassie Nightingale (Bell). Settling into Grey House and continuing her romance with the town Sheriff Jake Russell (Potter), Cassie still is a suspicious figure to the townspeople. Working both to fit in, and to turn Grey House into a bed and breakfast, Cassie is surprised when a stranger declares he is the legal owner of the house. Suddenly left without a home, Cassie struggles to find her place in her new city."
Once this arrived, I quickly realized it wasn't quite the supernatural movie I was expecting. I would say this was more geared towards an older crowd. Not that there was anything inappropriate for teenage eyes, just a bit different than the teenie bopper vampire movies. I enjoyed the suspense and drama in this film even though it wasn't your typical big title. It reminded me more of a cross between a cheesy Soap Opera and night time Sci-Fi.
Recommendation: Now I thought this was a good movie and Alana did as well. I hate how Hallmark movies can suck you in and constantly get me all mushy and teary eyed so thankfully thid one was a bit different.
