This movie is great for ages 13 and above because it has some adult humor that young children may NOT understand. Young children may be scared of the zombie and witch characters. (my child was scared) BUT as for a movie - it was hysterically funny in our opinion and should be watched EVERY Halloween.
This could be the second best Disney movie since Honey I Shrunk The Kids. Everyone loves this movie. Its a feel good movie.
An oldie movie but a good one. Sean Murray an very good actor - especially now that he's on NAVY NCIS.
I've seen this movie every year since I was young. This is the best Halloween movie I've seen. If I were you, I'd go and rent it, you'll enjoy it.
I love to watch this movie every year around Halloween. I've watched it like that every year for as long as I can remember and it still never gets old! A great movie!!
If You don't already own this movie go buy it. I guarentee you will LOVE it. Because it has the best actors ever in it. I''ve loved this movie as long as it has been out, and I promis you will too!!!!
i loved the movie and i thought Thackery Binx (sean murray) is the best
This is a staple of halloween in my household. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are fantastic as the ficticious "Sanderson Sisters" from Salem, Mass. Fans of Najimy will recognize the line, "You're right I'm wrong", from a scene "Parallel Lives" from "the Kathy and Mo Show". Midler and Parker are hysterical, with Midler as the mad genius and Parker as the nitwit. The movie is family friendly and not too scary for kids. And High School Musical fans, the director of HSM 1,2, and 3 directed Hocus Pocus.
Hocus Pocus takes 3 17th century witches: Winne(Bette Middler)Sarah(Sarah Jessica Parker)and Mary Sanderson(Kathy Najimy)and puts them in 1993's version of Salem. The only way they can stay alive though is to suck the lives out of all the children in Salem before Halloween is over, but Max,a teenager,and friends step in the way of their plans. The movie is really funny and full of eye-poping special effects.I really enjoyed it and you are guarranteed a cauldren full of fun with Hocus Pocus!
This movie is so much fun! The autumn scenery is just perfect and the 3 witches are completely hysterical. I've watched it every year since 1993 and it never loses its magic!
This movie is so good. I watched it when i was little basically everyday, I loved this movie. And now I'm buying it to watch it again. Check it out, you won't be dissapointed.
this movie is so good to watch on halloween plese try it out on halloween night you wont be sorry
