faced Lothos, she couldn’t text anyone “Help!” with an emoji of a demon. She fought solo. This female independence earned her a huge fan base. What eventually became the quirky hit TV series in the late ’90s started as a movie in 1992, which starred the neon-clad Kristy Swanson as the original chosen one and Donald Sutherland as her wise Watcher. Joss Whedon’s original hit about a teenage girl destined to battle demons, werewolves and vampire comes to life this Thursday and then again on Sunday when Denton’s Movie Tavern (916 W.
