Hocus Pocus

Keeping with a Halloween theme for Musical Monday, I selected some spellbinding songs from the film Hocus Pocus


Every Halloween season, I dust off the DVD and watch this bewitching movie with my two girls.  The film features Kathy Najimy, Sarah Jessica Parker and the amazing Bette Midler as the Sanderson sisters, three witches who were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts over 300 years ago.


After a virgin lights a black candle on All Hallows Eve some 300 years later, they return to Salem in modern times seeking eternal life by sucking the life out of young children.  As gruesome as this tale sounds, it delivers quite the rib-tickling comedy.  My girls and I love Hocus Pocus for all the tricks and treats it offers.


Before Sex in the City, Sarah Jessica Parker sang in the sky of Salem trying to lure children to her sisters’ home.




And of course, no Bette Midler film is complete without the enchanting howls and charms of the Divine Miss M.  One of my favorite scenes is when the Sanderson Sisters crash an adult Halloween party and cast a spell on an unsuspecting crowd. 



So, how about this Halloween you spellbind your loved ones with a little Hocus Pocus?

  1. Oh, I love this movie so much. (Although I never understood why they put those awful teeth on Bette Midler — or why she let them!) Great movie and it also reminds me of a few Halloweens spent partying in Salem, the most fun place to spend Halloween.
