Where to Watch: –
My all-time favorite Halloween movie. The Sanderson sisters are some of the best characters out of any Disney film, and what other movie has 300-year-dead witches returned from the grave, a talking cat, and a cheating zombie? Plus, there’s the awkwardness of a boy who gets the girl even after his major attempt to impress her brings the aforementioned witches back to life and proves he’s a virgin, so yeah. Add to that truly memorable performances by three fabulous actresses, an unforgettable rendition of ‘I Put a Spell on You,’ and too many quotable lines to count, and there’s no way you get away with not watching this cult film every Halloween season…and every other season, too, if you’re like me. Hocus Pocus airs on practically any station with a Halloween celebration, so there will be plenty of chances for you to watch this darkly hilarious favorite.
