300 years have passed since the Sanderson sisters were executed for practicing dark witchcraft. Returning to life thanks to a combination of a spell spoken before their demise and the accidental actions of Max, the new-kid-in-town, the sisters have but one night to secure their continuing existence...Written by
Rosie O'Donnell was originally offered the role of Mary Sanderson. O'Donnell claims on her blog that she turned down the offer to work with Bette Midler because she didn't want to be a "scary witch." See more »
Allison's forehead is clear before she enters Max's house. When the Dennison's are calling for their parents, a smudge of dirt is on her head. See more »
I like your costume, Dani.
Thank you! I really like yours too. Of course, I couldn't wear anything like that because I don't have any. What do you call them, Max? Yabbos?
[Max embarrassed nearly spits out the cider he's drinking]
Max likes your yabbos. In fact, he loves them!

During the end credits, the parents finally stop dancing and leave the building, exhausted; Jay and Ernie have been forgotten about and are still dangling in their cages, singing Row Row Row Your Boat, then the camera pans over to the spell book as the eye opens once more. See more »
When shown on The Disney Channel in the UK on Hallowe'en night 2005, most of the previous cuts were reinstated, with only a few scenes cut out. When the witches are hanged at the start we don't see their bodies or legs during the scene, we cut straight after Binx's father orders the hanging to shots of the crowd wincing at the sight of the hanging, and then to Binx's father ordering the cat away. The scene in which Billy gets his fingers cut off on the street is also cut out, as is the scene where he cuts his mouth open so he can speak with Max's knife. All other scenes remained intact, including the scenes where Billy loses his head twice. The last time it was shown, the headless scenes were removed and it prompted complaints from viewers who said the film was hard to understand with so many edits. They also complained that the headless scenes were done comically with no references to pain or blood and as the film was only a PG, and made by Disney themselves, so surely it wouldn't upset children who would find the funny side of it. All recent showing of the movie now have the headless scenes put back in. See more »
This movie came out when i was 5 years old, I had seen the trailers for it and I couldn't wait for it to come out. Back then it was my favourite movie of all time. I would watch it every day, sometimes twice a day... (I know, sad, right?} Now i am 18 and it is still among the best movies EVER!!! I wish that they would do a sequel with the original cast! That would be so cool! Something like... They come back to get revenge on Danny and her new boyfriend or son or something. I don't think they will though! I would love to be in it! ! ! It is such an amazing mix of history, drama, comedy, supernatural and playfulness. I read that this was originally going to be a TV movie for the Disney channel and not have Sarah, Bette and Kathy in it at all. Boy are we lucky they were. I know that it sounds like I am babbling on a bit and not making much sense but they won't let me post this message if it is less than 10 lines! How ridiculous is that? It would be better if I could just write what I want to say and not have to fill the ten lines with nonsense just so I can post a comment!
