Loved seeing this on the big screen!
Can’t wait for Hocus Pocus 2!!!!
So glad this was brought back to theaters years later!
Honestly my wig flies every time I watch this film it’s truly iconic
Amazing movie, Bette Midler is totally perfect. Grew up with this movie, never tired of it :)
One of my favorite movies! Really enjoyed watching on the big screen 😁😁
Awesome seeing a movie i grew up with in theaters!
Love this movie ❤️
I have loved this movie since it first came out, we watch it every Halloween and sometimes just because.
If I could give this movie 100 stars, I would. A little cheesy but so iconic.
I got to see this before it came out in theaters, (back in '93!), and loved it so much, we paid again to see. it when it finally premiered! So, when we saw that AMC was bringing it back; my daughter and I knew we had to get tickets!
Trying to break expectations isn't always a wise idea and here Disney show how not to do it. With this supposed-family movie, they disappoint on nearly every level. The plot is weak, the action poor and it's got Bette Midler, simply dreadful.
Apparently too much eye of newt got into the formula for Hocus Pocus, transforming a potentially wicked Bette Midler vehicle into an unholy mess. That's too bad, since Ms. Midler's appearance in a role like the one she has here could have been pure witchcraft.
Hocus Pocus is a film desperately in need of self-discipline. It's one of those projects where you imagine everyone laughing and applauding each other after every scene, because they're so convinced they're wild and crazy guys. But watching the movie is like attending a party you weren't invited to, and where you don't know anybody, and they're all in on a joke but won't explain it to you.
