Come little children, I'll take thee away into a land of enchantment. That land, of course, being Salem, Massachusetts, on October 31st in the year of our Lord 1993, when a virgin by the name of Max Dennison lit the Black Flame Candle and revived three of the most wicked witches of all time. Hocus Pocus was a bit of a sleeper hit but now it's a bonafide classic.
The Sanderson Sisters, bent on revenge, have one night to "glow up" by sucking the souls out of the children of Salem before sunrise. Ravenous Mary, salacious Sarah, and their long-suffering leader Winifred are totally baffled by the trappings of the 20th century, from busses to a horned up Gary Marshall, but they won't be giving up without a fight (not to mention one heckuva song and dance number).
But you already know that, don't you? Hocus Pocus is as synonymous with Halloween as The Santa Clause is to Christmas. Trouble is, it's pretty tricky to find online. Until now!
Here's everything you need to know to stream Hocus Pocus online.
