Children are both blessed and cursed with a complete ignorance of canon. For children of the 80s and 90s, the…
It's just a bunch of Hocus Pocus.
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.
-The only time it pays off to be a virgin
-The only time Sarah Jessica Parker is attractive is when she plays a witch,
-Bette Midler can cover the shit out of "I put a spell on you"
-Hey look it's that girl from "Eyes Wide Shut" I wonder what she's doing now.
-Hey look it's that girl from "American Beauty" I wonder what she's doing now.
-Hey look it's that guy from "Dumb and Dumber" I wonder what he's doi-oh right.
-Sarah Jessica Parker playing....Sarah.
-Cheesy 90s source material meant as a TV Disney film
Still a childhood classic. Will watch again.
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?!"
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.
Bette Midler's idiosyncratic, avant-garde energy is put to good use in this supernatural horror-comedy about three vein sister-witches who are evoked after a cavalier young virgin lights the black-flamed candle that summons them from the grave.
Midler is a snarky, horse-toothed sadist with a penchant for incantations, whose special attachment to a bewitched book that glares up at her with an embedded eye is the reason for her alpha-witch status. Kathy Najimy is her subservient sister; a delightfully large, bumbling villainess with a lopsided mouth and a good nose for sniffing out children. Sarah Jessica Parker (in a role that precedes her iconic turn in Sex and the City) rounds out the triad as a skittish nymphomaniac with a hypnotic…
*Doug Jones! You show up in the darndest places. What a flexible chameleon you are.
*Sarah Jessica Parker, you are so scarily sexy, giving adolescent boys nightmares of the best kind. What a knockout!
*Bette Midler, you just had to get in a song now, didn't you? I'm good with it though, cause you know how to work a room, even though you've been dead for 300 years and shouldn't know the first thing about belting.
*Kathy Najimy, wish you used a different quirk besides talking out of the side of you mouth, since it was driving my nuts, but you know I love ya.
*Kenny Ortega, you've been listening to your mentor, Gene Kelly! You really know how to…
The message to this movie is "If you're a virgin you either a loser, weirdo and you deserve to get bullied", and that's why I hate this movie.
I couldn't get it to this movie, a lot of people like this movie but I didn't for good reasons. The movie left a horrible feel inside of me after finishing watching it. The movie is rude, horrible and straight up ugly film making, it was like a high school bully wrote this movie, probably why this movie is horrible.
The good things in the movie was the three witches and some of designs where pretty, but the movie still blows.
I did some research and found Leonardo Dicaprio turned this movie,…
Terribly annoying and looks like shit for the most part. Billy the Zombie was a nice touch though.
Nunca creí que Sarah Jessica Parker se viera bonita hasta esta película.
Is it bad I always root for the witches?
This movie. <3
A bit late for Halloween but seeing as my Halloween schedule was crowded with first time watches I crept this into November. After all it's hardly pants-shittingly scary so I got away with it. My wife doesn't like the scary movies and even managed a jump in this (when a witch appears from under a bed sheet).
This might actually be the first time I've seen this since my first viewing....way back in 1994. I didn't remember that much about it and didn't remember a time when Sarah Jessica Parker was smoking hot (seriously, when did that happen? It doesn't even look like her on the poster). Enjoyable rewatch though. Much better than my jaded first viewing. Far more reminiscent of 80s horror & action kiddies favourites like the Goonies or Monster Squad.
Watched with Fran. <3
