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.
I'm sure you don't need me to tell you the plot of the film, as most people should be very familiar with this family film. Watched it loads as a kid and I still enjoy watching it today.
There are a few instances were things might be a tad intense for small children despite the PG rating. A cat is shown being run over, the witches are hung and later burned alive, a zombie is decapitated by a tree branch, and a child is killed by having her life siphoned from her. May be a bit much for the very young.
Always a delight and I would absolutely recommend it for a light hearted flick on a dark October night.
So glad I finally bought this for myself so I don't have to hunt it down online or borrow it from a friend.
I first watched this movie at my first sleepover at my friend Sarah's house for Halloween 1994. And I loved Max, and Binx, and every moment of this film ever since!!
