Children of the 90s know that it’s not Halloween without this spooky, kooky classic about three witch sisters (Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker) who return to the town of Salem after 300 years looking to wreak havoc and perform a choreographed song-and-dance number to “I Put a Spell on You.” Hocus Pocus follows teenager Max, who inadvertently resurrects the Sanderson sisters and must face zombies and annoying kid sisters on his quest to put a stop to the witches’ plan to suck out the souls of Salem’s children before Halloween night is up.
Cast: Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Thora Birch
