After 300 years of slumber, three sister witches are accidentally resurrected in Salem on Halloween night, and it us up to three kids and their newfound feline friend to put an end to the witches' reign of terror once and for all.
I know this is technically a bad film. The plot is hardly compelling, the protagonists are boring as boring can get, and the songs are dull at best, irritating at worst.
Nostalgia is a powerful agent and I long for this film more and more every Halloween. I think a big part of this is the atmosphere - this film knows Halloween (as a commercial holiday, sure, but nevertheless) and it is felt in so many aspects of this movie's tone and visuals. The shots of kids running around in homemade costumes, surrounded by jack o' lanterns and cheap yard decorations, brought me back to my own childhood. Not to mention that the Sanderson sisters were my go-to camp…
"I know this sounds dumb…"
Maybe it's just because one of my gay college buddies just finished jumping through all the ridiculous bureaucratic hoops involved in Adopting A Child While Homosexual, but for some reason this reads to me as an innocent lesbian threesome trying to adopt children and the whole world going nuts and trying to kill them because of it.
"Come little children, I'll take thee away
Into a land of enchantment
Come little children, the time's come to play
Here in my garden of magic."
For me this movie was a great big Nope made intermittently entertaining by Bette Midler's insane scenery-chewing performance and Thora Birch's nasty little sister making fun of her impotent big brother (they…
If Sarah Jessica Parker is the hottest one in your little trio, you know you've got to be a pack of ugly witches.
Sorry, somebody had to say it.
first of all, i NEED the sanderson sisters' wardrobe. second of all, sarah DEFINITELY put a spell on me when i was a kid... i was so gay for her and i didn't even realize... what a fool i was
sarah jessica parker: A BOY!
me, eating goldfish in bed: bitch me too
I used to watch this, happily, every year, since it came out. Unfortunately I think this tradition needs to end because I just didn't get the same joy from it this time around, dare I say, I think I've seen Hocus Pocus way too many times. I still love it, but I think I'm going to have to shelve it for the next few Halloweens and just look back on it fondly, I'll be sure to quote it enough to annoy my husband and maybe sing "I Put a Spell On You" like Winifred a few times.."...my name is Winifred..what's YOURS?!"
This was my favorite movie to steal from my neighbor's house and watch. And now, almost every Halloween, I pull it back out to quote every line and question all the silly choices. Is there anything more immortal than Bette Midler as Winifred Sanderson??
Classic to the max!
omg!! i watched this yesterday and i can't believe i forgot to log it!!! i'm hocus pocus trash!!!!
name a scene in a movie as perfect as bette midler singing I put a spell on you
I watched this film with a group of people and I feel like this one was picked (my way of saying I watched this against my choice) because it was a children's movie so it was 'safe' if anyone in the audience would get offended. But that kind of worked against them since this film was so oddly sexual that I'm surprised they were able to get away with all this in a kids movie. Plus, the whole thing was really predictable, the dialogue was very lackluster, and characters were pretty bland. Nothing really new or interesting in this movie.
Showed this to my friend who HAD NEVER SEEN IT. Sacrilege. She thought it was subpar 😓
Doug Jones is a treasure.
thanks to freeform's 13 days of halloween for allowing me to finally see this movie. it was decent.
"Amok! Amok, amok, amok, amok, amok!!!"
This movie is truly nostalgia.
Help me out with this one guys.
