This is probably my favorite Halloween movie. I try to catch it every year when it plays, at least once. Surprisingly, I do not own this movie. I would grow up watching it on Disney. I love the story and the movie holds a special place in my heart. I love all the characters in the movie and even the one song. Even though it is a short movie, it doesn't skip over important moments and gets to them without forgetting mention all the details. Of course, I'll continue to watch it. After all, I'm pretty sure it is a cult classic at this point.
when i think about Halloween i instantly want to grab this movie. the music, the feel, the celebration and action in this movie is so entertaining that you will love singing along with the villain. i love the characters. my favorite are the witches of course and the cat. i am cat fanatic and i loved everything about this movie. i can watch this every time and i will never get tired of watching this movie. this is such an original movie that you just want to pass this movie on to your kids.
As most adults my age I watched this over and over as a kid. I honestly loved Sara Jessica Parker in this she was phenomenal as the ditsy blonde witch. I was always freaked out by the dead guy that popped up at the end to help the kids but overall this is a classic and was a must watch for me when I was a kiddo.
Yes this is my all time favorite movie and a must watch in my house every single year around Halloween. I'm not really sure why I love it so much...I just do. I love the Sanderson sisters and the character story line of each of them. Such a great movie...
God I LOVE this movie. I watch it every year around Halloween and even other times during the year. It’s so nostalgic for me since I’ve been in love with it since I was a kid. Bette Midler is so great - all the witches are hilarious. Just a feel good movie.
I think this is one of the classic and good movies of the season of Halloween. The witches are funny and kind of remind me of the three stooges in a way. The children are typical, but smart in a way that makes them different. This movie keeps you on your feet and its very unexpected. GREAT for Halloween and the whole family.
Hocus Pocus is an oldie but a goodie. Bette Middler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker give an outstanding performance, and even though they’re villains, you can’t help but love them! It’s a movie you can watch year around without feeling guilty because it’s not Halloween anymore. Don’t deprive yourself or your children of this Cult Favorite
If you’ve never watched this movie then shame on it. Since I was 8 years old, I’ve watched this movie every Halloween more than I can count. If you love Halloween, Salem, witches, and more than I recommend. It’s a little scary for someone younger than 10 but it’s definitely a must watch
I remember when this for came out I was almost ten and granny had told me to go to bed I was so quiet because I had wanted to stay up a nd watch this movie ever since I watch it ever year this was a part of my childhood i loved it I still watch it every y ear with my granny.
I have the Sanderson sisters tattooed on my arm... do I need to say anything else? This movie brings back such awesome childhood memories. It’s funny and creepy and is great for anyone who enjoys Halloween. I grew up near Salem, MA so naturally this is one of my favorites. Great for kids and adults, because there is hidden adult humor without being too inappropriate for kids.
