Witches casting a spell over Hollywood
She told the Telegraph: “You tell them it’s not a good place to park and they give you the finger or bad language. “These people don’t know how to drive and we are afraid to go out of our houses. It used to be a nice quiet place. Now any child that played in the road would be dead. It’s a rotten situation. They (the authorities) don’t do anything because they think it’s great, it’s more money for Hollywood.” Recently, satirical flyers appeared in the area referring to tourists as “locusts” and suggesting “armed checkpoints.” Signs also went up reading “Warning – Tourist-Free Zone.” The resident responsible, a Hollywood producer, later said they were intended as a spoof about the on-going debate. Fran Reichenbach, president of the Beachwood Canyon Neighbourhood Association, an area below the sign, denied charges of nimbyism. She said residents were not against tourism, but the area could only manage about a tenth of the current amount of people visiting. She told the Telegraph: “People seem to think we’re being elitist and how dare we, since we chose to move next to such a beautiful icon. In fact we feel it’s awesome to share that. “The problem is we’ve a public safety issue.

In 1987, Cher, left, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer gifted us with a darkly comic adaptation of John Updike’s “The Witches of Eastwick.” As three single women unaware of their own power, they accidentally lure the devil right into their idyllic town. We have to agree with Angelina Jolie that it’s about time Maleficent, the “mistress of all evil” in “Sleeping Beauty,” tells her side of the story. In the 2014 film, Jolie will portray the evil sorceress and reveal why she was so hellbent on cursing Princess Aurora. Let’s count the ways 1989’s “Teen Witch” won us over: First, there’s the rapping “Top That” scene , followed by the final dance , and the fact that she used her powers in pretty much the exact same ways we would have at 16. Better still: Robyn Lively re-created her “Teen Witch” dance moves for her younger sister Blake when the “Gossip Girl” actress married Ryan Reynolds. There’s a reason Anjelica Huston’s fearsome character was known as the “Grand High Witch” in the 1990 adaptation of Roald Dahl’s “The Witches.” Not only was she powerful and absolutely horrifying underneath the wig and makeup , she also had a ruthless wit. Disney’s 1993 tale of the Sanderson sisters in “Hocus Pocus” has become a Halloween staple in the 20 years since its release. Kathy Najimy, left, Bette Midler and Sarah Jessica Parker are likely somewhere running amok and hunting down virgins on your cable TV right about now. After “explaining it all” on Nickelodeon as Clarissa, Melissa Joan Hart moved on to another starring TV role that’s just as memorable. As the teenage witch Sabrina in the ABC show of the same name, Hart supplied witchy comedy — along with her snarky black cat, Salem — to the young adult set from 1996 to 2003. No disrespect to stars Robin Tunney, back right, Rachel True, front right, or Neve Campbell, back left, but Fairuza Balk’s Nancy was the baddest witch in “The Craft’s” coven. When not being mined for style inspiration, this 1996 horror flick can still give nightmares. In 1998, Shannen Doherty’s bad girl ways were back on TV with a magical twist.
