You're in for a devil of a time when three outlandishly wild witches -- Bette Midler (BEACHES, BIG BUSINESS), Sarah Jessica Parker (HONEYMOON IN VEGAS), and Kathy Najimy (SISTER ACT) -- return from 17th-century Salem after they're accidentally conjured up by some unsuspecting pranksters! It's a night full of zany fun and comic chaos once the tricky 300-year-old trio sets out to cast a spell on the town and reclaim their youth -- but first they must get their act together and outwit three kids and a talking cat! Loaded with bewitching laughs, HOCUS POCUS is an outrageously wild comedy that's sure to entertain everyone!|Producer David Kirschner came up with the idea for the movie one night while he and his young daughter were sitting outside and his neighbor's black cat strayed by. Kirschner began to unspool a narrative of how the cat was once a boy who was changed into a feline 300 years ago by three witches.|Actress Kathy Najimy described her character Mary as "Eddie Haskell as a witch," referring to the character on the classic TV series "Leave It To Beaver." "She sucks up to Winifred [Bette Midler's character] every chance she gets. She wants to be part of the power club and Winifred's got the power."|To create the costumes, designer Mary Vogt read many historical books about Salem, Massachusetts. "I even read diaries of women who were hanged as witches," she says.

That said, even at 30, I still enjoy watching this movie around the Halloween season, amongst the Friday the 13th's, slasher flicks, monster movies, and all of the other great horror films. It's light-hearted and reminds me of my childhood, when things were a little simpler.
Back in the days 3 witches in Salem were killed. They can only come back if a virgin lights a candle inside their old house on a full moon on Halloween. Well guess what, that happens. The witches will be dead again by morning, per the curse, if they don't steal the life out of children. The only problem is the boy who lit the candle that brought them back stole their magic spell book. The movie is funny because the witches have to adapt to modern times while trying to get their book back. This movie involves talking cats, a nice zombie, and lots of magic. It's a great watch.
my 3 year old son 18 month old daughter and my 30 year old grown husband and I all enjoy this movie!
We emphasize that the characters are just that, and pretend, in "halloween costumes" it's a fun musical journey that takes 3 kids on a quest to save the towns children from the Sanderson sister witches, who have been summoned to earth from the past on halloween night by the black flame candle lit by a virgin child.
The witches want the "souls" of kids to stay young and beautiful.
A kind of modern disney repunzel ish tale. Not scary
Aimed for 6 and up audience.
ENJOYABLE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY, and that is a rare find.
This is a must have movie in your collection. I watch is every year in October and it always puts a smile on my face. I highly recommend this movie for everyone who likes Halloween or scary movies!

>.> Would have been better without the protagonist, but the rest of the cast makes up for it.
