Strangely, the film was released in the Summer of 1993, rather than in the Fall. See more »
When Max and Dani go into Allison's house to trick-or-treat, as the conversation carries on, Allison gives Dani a large witch-shaped sucker. A few lines later, the witch sucker she holds changes to a much smaller, differently shaped sucker. See more »

I don't what the critics were talking about, but I found Hocus Pocus to be extreme fun, from start to finish. The use of color and the sets is all magical, giving the movie a strange fairy-tale feel. I also found it to be very funny with great special-effects. The movie's just plain fun. The three witches, thankfully, aren't flat and dull. This movie is scary without being profane (ala Mighty Joe Young) or super duper frightening. A great film that's much better than most Disney live-action films today.
