When you think of a Halloween cult classic, I would be surprised if you didn't think of this movie. Hocus pocus is a fun movie for all ages. Young old, just ask anyone if they’ve seen this movie, and if they have then they usually like it. Of course I’ve met a few that didn’t, but hey people can be wrong lol.
Hocus pocus is one of those Halloween movies that leaves you wondering about what could happen next. There have been rumors for years about a possible sequel, and yes if that happened, I’d definitely watch it but then again you also don’t want a sequel because what if it ruined the epicness of the first movie?
***Melanie Jumping in here with a sequel update - It is said to be going ahead and releasing on Disney+ but with no fixed date. There is a recent article about it on Digital Spy with the most accurate details I have seen which you can read here ..... OK Back to Jenn.....***
So the original Hocus Pocus is about three witch sisters, and you’re probably thinking really? Been done before...... But you would be WRONG! There is nothing else like Hocus Pocus out there. These witches are not good by any means. They kidnap and kill children for their youth but end up being stopped by a boy who loses his sister to them. Flash forward to the present day, and that’s really where the story begins.
And of course I couldn't write about Hocus Pocus without talking about one particular song. Once you hear "I Put A Spell On You" in this movie I would bet it will be an instant favorite of yours, trust me!
If you haven’t seen Hocus Pocus, then what are you waiting for? It's not your average run of the mill witch story, but something much more exciting and fun! Just ask ANY fan!
