one movie that put a hypnotic spell on all of us ’90s kids…
and one of the famed Sanderson sisters recently knocked it out of the park for us.
The 1993 cult movie phenomenon Hocus Pocus continues to cast its nostalgic magic on anybody who has seen the film throughout the past 23 years since it premiered in movie theaters. Much like John Carpenter’s Halloween series, Hocus Pocus has become one of the must-see Halloween movies. That’s definitely impressive company for this time of year.
Disney, incredibly, seems to have the support of the main cast to reunite for an entertaining sequel. What’s more is that the original movie didn’t rely too heavily on grand special effects, which means the sequel would likely be story first. And the movies that focus on story, characters and settings first always succeed.
(ex.- Hocus Pocus in 1993).
Hopefully, fans won’t have to wait 300 years for someone to light a black flame candle of screenwriting for a sequel.
