Even though Halloween is now over, everyone is still coming down from their fun All Hallowsâ€™ Eve highs. Maybe you went to a costume party last night? Or went trick-or-treating? Or just chilled at home, ate candy until you made yourself sick and watched â€œHocus Pocus,â€ aka the greatest Halloween movie ever.
Well, bubble, bubble! Youâ€™re in for an extra treat today, because on Saturday (Oct. 31) the three (non-witch) stars of the movie hung out. Omri Katz (Max Dennison), Vinessa Shaw (Allison No-Last-Name) and Thora Birch (Dani Dennison) had a mini-â€œHocus Pocusâ€ reunion.
â€œFor your hangover from candy or whateverâ€¦more #HocusPocus for you!! Yes, we hung out on #halloween ðŸŽƒâœ¨ #omrikatz #thorabirch #vinessashaw #maxdennison #danidennison #allison @omzmosis @kennyortegablog,â€ captioned Shaw.
The Non-Witches Of â€˜Hocus Pocusâ€™ Reveal Their Fave Memories From The Set
Shaw and Birch were recently in the news when they shared fun memories from the 1993 movie. But personally, Iâ€™m excited to see what Katz looks like now. He appears to have quit acting in 2002, and heâ€™s been sorely missed.
Because, letâ€™s be real here for a sec. Who didnâ€™t have a crush on Max-the-virgin growing up?
Since Shaw tagged Katz, we went and checked out his Instagram page. But, it looks like heâ€™s not active on it anymore, since the last pic he shared was seven weeks ago. Most of the 28 pics are of his cute dogs, but he did share a pic of himself â€” back in 2013.
Itâ€™s been a great fall season for â€œHocus Pocusâ€ fans. For starters, the â€œHocus Pocus Villain Spelltacularâ€ premiered at Walt Disney World in September. More recently, fans of the film â€” who are apparently virgins â€” tweeted at star Bette Midler after Winifred Sanderson herself jokingly admitted the â€œHocus Pocusâ€ sequel was delayed, due to a lack of virgins. LOL.
â€œHappy ðŸŽƒHalloween to my gorgeous #HocusPocus cast and forever friends (pictured) the exquisite Vinessa Shaw, Sean Murray, Omri Katz (the virgin who lit #theblackflamecandle and to the incomparable Thora Birch. I love you allâ€¦,â€ captioned Ortega.
