Hocus Pocus (1993)

Kenny Ortega directs Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy in this Halloween kids comedy where witches from the past are unleashed into the mid-90s.

I was a little too old for this back in ‘93 so it passed me by. I’m way too old for it now and its rising cult baffles me. Standard product from Disney – formless adventure, punchline-free jokes, shrill performances, uneven tone (bloodthirsty yet somehow bloodless).
