Mister D: Ya’ll know I love Bette Midler. I’m ecstatic that one of her movies is a cultural phenomenon. And I do love Hocus Pocus! But I have articles out the ass of every aspect of this movie. What more can they tell us? OMG! And there are still articles to come! LOL My only wish is that we had this much information and more on all her movies. There are things I’m dying to know about each. Maybe we’ll have to be our own reporters. But everybody’s dying off, to put things bluntly, so I wish I could figure a way out to get some first-hand accounts. Maybe if we all put our heads together we could create a list of people to contact. Think about it. Leave comments, Now enjoy this fine Hocus Pocus article. Thank you! Read More

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Hocus Pocus

A 1993 Halloween-themed Disney film for “kids”. This was the second film directed by Kenny Ortega, previously known for Newsies (1993). Now considered a cult favorite, the film’s rather campy, but pretty entertaining. It does, after all, contain a memorable rendition of “I Put A Spell On You” by Bette Midler. The song “Come Little Children” from this film went on to become a Halloween classic. Read More

HOCUS POCUS Original Writer Wants To Return For The Sequel

Disney Film Facts
HOCUS POCUS Original Writer Wants To Return For The Sequel
By Skyler Shuler
Jul 13, 2018

Bette Midler - Winifred Sanderson

Hocus Pocus might not have enjoyed any critical or commercial success when it was first released by Disney in 1993, however the comedy horror fantasy movie by Kenny Ortega gained quite a name of the years, and now the film has a passionate following.

Last year, word began circulating online that Disney was going to make a TV movie based on the original Hocus Pocus. Though there haven’t been any updates regarding the project for a while, original Hocus Pocus co-writer Mick Garris hasn’t at all forgotten about the film, telling ComicBook.com that he’d still like to work on a follow-up movie for Disney.

21 Witchy Movies to Keep You Spellbound Until ‘Suspiria’

21 Witchy Movies to Keep You Spellbound Until ‘Suspiria’

Bette Midler, SJP, and Kathy Najimy, Hocus Pocus

If you’re a horror fan (or a Luca Guadagnino or Tilda Swinton fan), chances are you’ve already seen the new Suspiria trailer a few times. The fresh take on an Italian classic doesn’t hit theaters until November, but it’s already garnered plenty of early buzz (early footage at a CinemaCon luncheon led to nauseous praise) and scrutiny (the color palette features less Argento neon and more shades of gray) from horror aficionados and reboot detractors. Regardless of whether it recalls the original or is a complete diversion, the Suspiria redux will join the ranks of one of the greatest subgenres of storytelling: witch movies. Read More

Hocus Pocus, Bette Midler, Book, Sequel

Releasing this summer, Freeform and Disney Book Group’s Hocus Pocus & the All-New Sequel will re-tell the original story AND give us a 25-years-later sequel, and the website Oh My Disney today reveals some new details about the upcoming book.

Specifically, the site introduces us to three new characters joining the fun…

POPPY DENNISON | An introspective aspiring photographer, seventeen-year-old Poppy isn’t exactly Halloween’s biggest fan. (She hasn’t worn a costume in a decade, for witch’s sake!) And she’s also a skeptic of all things supernatural, including her parents’ (in)famous story about their Halloween night twenty-five years ago, when her dad allegedly resurrected and banished a coven of evil witches (yes, those evil witches). When Poppy musters the courage to share her family’s backstory with her new friend and crush, Isabella Richards, she sets in motion Halloween plans that Salem will never forget. Read More

WARNER HOME VIDEO

Though most people associate the Halloween season with horror movies, there are movies in every genre—from cartoons to comedies—that take their inspiration from the spookiest time of year, either in a pivotal scene or as an overall theme. Here are 20 of our favorites.

1. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD (1962)

One of the most iconic scenes in this adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic novel is the night Scout (Mary Badham) walks home in a clumsy ham costume after a Halloween party: She and brother Jem are saved by Boo Radley (Robert Duvall) after being attacked by a man looking for revenge on their father, attorney Atticus Finch. Trapped in the awkward ham costume, Scout is both defenseless and defended—the heavy exterior thwarts the man’s attack and saves her from serious injury. —Jake Rossen Read More

Hocus Pocus is one of those movies you HAVE to watch around Halloween time, and if you don’t, then what are you actually watching?

The flick, starring Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker, has become a cult classic — and before you watch it tonight on Freeform (don’t lie, we know you are), we’ve got a few secrets to spill about the flick.

Director Kenny Ortega spoke with EW about how Leonardo DiCaprio once auditioned for Max, and how the dust flying out of Billy Butcherson’s mouth was actually dust. Read More
