Salem's Halloween attire

The Phantom Menace is the sixth episode of the fourth season and the eighty first overall episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.


It's Halloween and instead of celebrating the holiday with her aunts, Sabrina gets a job at a nearby coffee shop and spends it working. Her aunts warn her that, because she is a witch, she can't run from Halloween, but Sabrina doesn't listen. At the coffee shop, Sabrina learns that her boss, Josh, isn't staying with her to help, as he has to finish a paper for college, and Sabrina is left alone in the shop. She is freaked out because she starts hearing voices and Dreama comes along and scares her to death with her costume. To makes things worse, a bunch of zombies appear to freak the girls.


The undead arrive at Sabrina's job.

Meanwhile, Hilda and Zelda anticipate dinner with the famous writer, Edgar Allen Poe, but the dinner isn't all that they expected.
