In the year 1693, 3 sisters, Winifred, Mary and Sarah were executed for their unforgivable witchcraft. One fateful Halloween night, that unpleasant honor went to adorable little Emily Binx, sister of teenage Thackery, who immediately ran to his siblings aid when he heard shed been lured by Sarah Sanderson to the witches home in the woods. This was not a well thought out plan though, and the cost was not only the life of his sister Emily, but his own humanity as well. Emilys lifeforce was drained from her body by the three Sanderson witches, and big brother Thackery Binx was transformed into an immortal black cat, cursed to live forever with the guilt of his failure to save his sister! Luckily for the rest of the children of Salem, the Sanderson sisters were captured that night and hung for their crimes, but not before their living book of spells revealed to them a curse to bring the three back from the dead on All Hallows Eve when a virgin lights the black flame candle. 300 years later, teenager Max Dennison is a newcomer to Salem, struggling to adjust after growing up in a California lifestyle. It isnt going well for Max. Bullies are stealing his sneakers right off his feet, the girl of his dreams snubs him due to his lack of interest in Halloween, and his little sister, Dani, is ever the pest. Now, he must spend the evening escorting her door to door for trick or treating while their parents enjoy the town Halloween dance. Things are about to go from bad to worse for Max, however. Just when he believes things are looking up after he and Dani convince dream-girl Allison to take them to the old Sanderson house, Maxs efforts to impress the girl lead him to light the black-flame candle himself, bringing Sarah, Mary, and Winifred Sanderson back from the dead! From there on out, its a non-stop, fun-filled chase as the witches pursue the children, determined to make sassy-mouthed Dani the subject of their next youth spell, which must be performed before dawn or else the witches will be gone forever! With the immortal, talking black cat Binx guiding them along, Max, Dani, and Allison work together to outrun, outwit, and outlast the evil trio and their magical arsenal, with the fate of all the children of Salem hanging in the balance!

This review is from: Hocus Pocus (DVD) To sum up how much I love this movie I taped it off tv, then I bought it on VHS and now I have ordered the DVD. I watch this movie several times a year, not just at Halloween. I only hope that they someday release the soundtrack for this one. I would definately buy that too.

While I've been enjoying this film for years, I only recently decided toread some reviews for it, and am shocked! The truth is, this film is awonderfully comical and charming tale of three Salem witches that areresurrected by a teenage boy, who, with the help of his little sister andlove interest, must try to stop them from stealing the souls of children.This movie really sparkles in the representations of the witches, who areall cast perfectly. Bette Midler provides for a hilarious and almostfrightening Winifred (the leader), Sarah Jessica Parker shines as thesexy,dim-witted Sarah, and Kathy Najimy is marvelous as the funny, perky Mary.What makes the film even better is that there are two stunning musicalnumbers--Midler's delightful "I Put a Spell on You" and Parker's hypnotic"Come, Little Children." Ignore the critics, "Hocus Pocus" is perfect notonly for Halloween, but for any time of the year!
In the Halloween family movie dept. I'll give this one five stars because it has something for everyone in the family. For me, it has Sara Jessica Parker. Since this one came out in 1993 her character "Sara" has been one of best all time hot witches. Theres a scene that I enjoy specifically where she flies around the town on her broom singing a spell that she uses to lair children into her "garden." In an another equally enjoyable scene a dirty bus driver lets her drive the bus while sitting on his lap. Some nice touches.Overall the movie has good characters all around. The teenage boy, who haphazardly ressurects the witches from a three hundred year death (Salem witch trials) due to the fact (hillariously mentioned several times) that he is a virgin. Don't worry, it's subtle enough to fly over little kids heads... His sister, who is played by a pretty young Thora Birch, who you may remember from movies like Ghost World and American Beauty. The parents are pretty hip... mom goes to a Halloween party dressed up like "cones era" Madonna, and then of course you have the witches... Bette Midler, the other chick, and Sarah Jessica Parker,,, who, if you weren't paying attention, is a total fox. I dig the scene where the kid and his girlfriend check to see if his sisters in her bed, only to find Sara the witch laying in there instead... Happy Halloween!Overall this movie makes good comic use of the story line. For instance, the scene where the witches can smell children, but can't see any, even though they are swarming the streets (they are "tricked" by the Halloween costumes, clever!) and the movie moves quickly enough along so that no one gets bored... Glad I dug this one out!
I loved this movie! I've been watching it since 2002 when I was 7 and now I'm 11 and I still watch it. It's so funny and Binks as a kitty is cute. I really like it and mom and I watch it every October. I was a witch one Halloween and I acted a bit like them. This year I am a pirate.
I liked this movie. Midler, Parker, and Najimy did a hilarious job. I loved watching the three 17th century gals try to understand modern living.
I absolutely love this movie and must have literally seen it 100 times. It's about 3 witches that come back to life for one night after 300 years. In order to survive past dawn, they must suck the lives out of the children (not like a vampire though) using a potion from their much prized book of spells. But the past 300 years have brought on many changes for them that they have to overcome in order to get the book back from 3 kids to make the potion that makes the children susceptible to having the life sucked out of them. In the end all, good overcomes evil.
This review is from: Hocus Pocus (DVD) Very happy with my purchase and how fast I received it! Thank you so much.
This review is from: Hocus Pocus (DVD) Item came in the time it said it would take. Was very pleased at the condition of the product I got.
witchcraft shouldn't be made a joke out of, but this movie is still very enjoyable to watch even 12 years after its release. a must see.
I first saw this movie when I was Twelve and I've been hooked ever since.I haven't met many people that had any negative things to say about this film,most everyone I've shown this movie to has liked or loved it. I do agree with most people posting here,this movie is very underrated compared to a lot of films in it's genre.
This (For me)is the best movie of all time. I know it by heart and watch is at least once a day and I'm not tired of it. I've seen this movie well over 1000 times and I just love it. Imight be the biggest fan of this movie because no one else seems to love this movie as much as I do. It beats out any movie ever made, no questions asked!!!
This movie is such a nice fantasy. To me it seemed more like a comedy, especially funny was Bette Midler! I also liked the song the blond "Witch" sang. They are so funny. I think this is a movie worth watching because it's funny and it has a great story line that it follows. The beggining of the movie was kind of sad but the rest of it is so funny. (Why did the "Witches" have to die?)
Hocus Pocus is a funny, and entertaining movie. I couldn't find a bettermovie than this. The best PG movie and Disney movie ever made. I thought itwould be a boring witch movie like every other witch movie but I was wrong.It's the nuttiest movie and funniest movie ever made. This is my favoritemovie. Ill give 3 Thumbs up (if I had 3 Thumbs) and **** out of****.
I just have 3 words to say about him movie (IT WAS AWSOME). My favorite character is (Sarah the witch) I like her song (come little children) I also like max's sister.... She is so funny/sweet/ and cuteSo i would give this movie 100000000/10000000000
