Conjure up a cauldron of laughs with HOCUS POCUS, a fiendishly fun movie now on Blu-ray for the first time, featuring an all-new digital restoration with enhanced picture and sound. Academy Award(R) nominee Bette Midler (Best Actress, 1991, FOR THE BOYS), Sarah Jessica Parker (SEX IN THE CITY) and Kathy Najimy (THE WEDDING PLANNER) star in a wild and wacky comedy for the entire family. When three 17th century Salem witches are accidentally summoned by modern-day pranksters, the 300-year-old trio sets out to cast a spell on the town and reclaim their youth, but first they must outwit three kids and a talking cat. Get ready for a night of zany fun in this bewitching comedy classic -- now even better on Blu-ray!|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 hadn't seen this in over ten years, so i wanted to see it again.
my family had not seen this, ever. (9-yo, 12-yo, and two of us over 40).
we watched it on Halloween night, and we ALL loved it!!
Bette Midler is a HOOT!
the entire cast is fabulous!
