300 years have passed since the Sanderson sisters were executed for practicing dark witchcraft.

David Kirschner and Mick Garris, both of whom had collaborated with Steven Spielberg in the past, set the project up at Disney in the mid-1980s. Garris and Kirchner pitched "Hocus Pocus" to Spielberg, who turned it down. He had no intention of working with Disney, which he saw as his biggest competitor. Spielberg eventually collaborated with the Disney studios within a few years, but by the time this film was made, the filmmaker had long abandoned it. See more »
When the kids first enter the Sanderson "museum," Alison turns the lights on. If the place had been closed for several years, the electricity would likely have been shut off. See more »

The Walt Disney logo at the start is tinted blue (the one at the end has the usual coloring). See more »
When shown on UK television in 2005, all instances of Billy losing his head and stumbling around headless were cut (rendering the credit in the cast to 'Headless Billy' meaningless). Thus, the scene when Billy loses his head and Dani steps out of the protective salt circle to retrieve it for him (giving Winnie the opportunity to grab her) no longer makes sense. It just cuts to a scene of Dani suddenly outside the protective circle and screaming as Winnie swoops down on her from above. Without knowing about Dani retrieving Billy's head the viewer is left puzzled as to why Dani left the circle. See more »
I have this movie on VHS (yeah that sounds ancient now!), and I've had it since it was released in 1993, so my poor knackered video tape is 13 years old. I recently bought it on DVD as my VHS quality was getting poor (probably because I watched it over and over when I was young!).
My oh my...it bought back some good memories. As sad as this is, I use to remember EVERY single word in this movie when I was a little whipper snapper, and I use to speak along with the cast! This movie sparked up those memories!! It's a classic film for anyone I would say. I love how it still makes me laugh and I love singing along to the classic numbers "I put a spell on you" and "come little children".
An awesome awesome film about 3 witches who come back to life after 300 years of being dead. If I have children when I get abit older, I will Definitely be showing this one to them as this is NOT a film to miss! And I didn't actually realise that the little girl in the movie is Thora Birch (well I did, I just didn't pay attention to the fact). She's a great actress and even then at such a young age! Just go ahead and watch it...doesn't need to be saved for halloween, it's a great film that can be watched all year round :)
