7 Secrets from Cult Favorite Hocus Pocus for its 25th Anniversary

Ready for a serious flashback? Hocus Pocus is 25 years old.

That means it’s been a quarter century since the coven of evil witches played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy were accidentally set free to wreak havoc on Salem, Mass. And it’s been 25 years since a cult favorite was born.

hocus pocus 1140x733 - We Reveal 7 Secrets from Cult Favorite Hocus Pocus for its 25th Anniversary

For many of us, October means grabbing a pumpkin spice latte, loading up on candy corn, hitting the DVR and lining up every single showing of Hocus Pocus so we can just keep watching over and over and over again. It’s become Halloween tradition in many a household thanks to Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween. But just maybe there’s a better way? Read More

25 Things We Learned from the ‘Hocus Pocus’ 25th Anniversary Blu-ray

Hocus Pocus, one of the campiest cult classics ever to be cooked up in a cinematic cauldron, delighted audiences 25 years ago. And as the new anniversary Blu-ray proves, the movie has never lost its magical touch. The story centers on the witchy Sanderson Sisters played uniquely and expertly well by Bette MidlerSarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy, who haunt Salem, Massachusetts upon awakening from their 300-year slumber. The only ones who can stop them are, ironically, the ones who woke them up in the first place: teenagers Max (Omri Katz) and Allison (Vinessa Shaw) and Max’s younger sister, Dani (Thora Birch), assisted by a cursed, immortal, talking cat, and a resurrected zombie (Doug Jones). There’s a reason that Freeform plays this flick a bunch of times during their annual 31 Nights of Halloween fest, but now you can pick up a tricked-out copy of your own. Read More

Blu-Ray Review: “Hocus Pocus” Anniversary Edition

Blu-Ray Review: “Hocus Pocus” Anniversary Edition
by Alex Reif | Aug 31, 2018

Hocus Pocus Painting, Bette Midler

It’s been 325 years since the Sanderson Sisters were hanged by the Salem townsfolk. That means it’s been 25 years since the witches came back to life in 1993 to terrorize Max, Dani, and Allison on All Hallows Eve. In celebration, Disney is re-releasing Hocus Pocus in a brand-new Anniversary Edition with bonus features for the first time ever on September 2nd!

Winifred (Bette Midler), Mary (Kathy Najimy), and Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker) Sanderson are back for one night of frightful fun in this highly quotable comedy. When teenage Max lights the Black Flame Candle to impress a girl he has a crush on, he accidentally brings three of Salem’s most terrifying witches back to life. Along with a talking cat named Binx, these kids will spend their Halloween trying to stop the witches from sucking the lives of children before sunrise if they want to send these “Hags” back to hell where they belong.

15 Sequels To Iconic Movies We Want To Be Made ASAP

15 Sequels To Iconic Movies We Want To Be Made ASAP

1. Charlie’s Angels 3

 

Columbia

Why We’re Demanding A Sequel: Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Barrymore have perfect chemistry together. While I’m cautiously optimistic about the remake, I want these ladies. And they’re STILL capable of kicking ass.

Free Plot Idea: Just go with the normal saving-the-world stuff. We loved Demi Moore as the villain last time — why not go with a strong female antagonist again, maybe like Kerry Washington or Jennifer Garner. And a secondary plot can be the girls training a new generation of Angels, setting up a new set of sequels perfectly. Read More

Bette Midler has one word for Disney’s Planned Remake Of ‘Hocus Pocus’
DANIEL S. LEVINE 08/09/2018 06:36 PM

Bette Midler, Disney, Hocus Pocus

Bette Midler is one of the most accomplished performers today, but one movie on her resume holds a special place in the hearts of millions: Disney’s Hocus Pocus. The film keeps finding new fans, 25 years after its release, and Midler is “grateful” for the film’s success.

“We had no expectations because we didn’t get very good notices and we didn’t do the business that anyone expected us to do,” Midler said in a recent interview with Good Morning America. “And the fact that it became this cult favorite and that it plays regularly every Halloween, I mean, I have very young fans because of Winnie, because of Hocus Pocus, so I’m grateful for it.” Read More

‘Hocus Pocus’ Gets a 3 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Releases and Funko POP Vinyls

Film
Posted on Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 by Ethan Anderton

There’s been plenty of celebration regarding the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park, but another beloved movie from 1993 is also worthy of honor, especially with Halloween around the corner.

Hocus Pocus is one of Disney’s cult favorites with children of the ’90s especially holding the movie close to their heart. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy play the witch trio known as the Sanderson Sisters who are trying to achieve immortality in Salem, Oregon, but they need a certain spellbook in order to complete the incantation, and three kids and a talking cat have run off with it.
