20 of 31 Horrors: Practical Magic (1998) - Sisters Sally and Gillian Owens find themselves in a sticky situation when they’re forced to kill Gilly’s abusive boyfriend Jimmy in self-defense. Luckily, the pair happen to be witches, and turn to their practical magic to fix the problem. But with the ghostly Jimmy haunting them, and a handsome detective digging into their secrets — and striking sparks with Sally — can practical magic be enough to save the day?
If I had to pick just one movie to live inside for the rest of my days, it would be this film. The absolute best witchy aesthetics, a focus on wonderful sister relationships that even overshadows the romantic subplot, an estrogen-heavy cast of powerful ladies who refuse to back down from a fight, and an ending that reaffirms the power of love over old curses and personal demons. The movie that made me want to be a witch and have a sister more than anything, everything about this picture is gorgeous and warm and perfect.
