Hocus Pocus Review

Hocus Pocus Review

Nyla Johnson, Reporter

Hocus Pocus is a Disney movie that was released in 1993. This movie was directed by Mick Garrison and Neil Cuthbert, a spooky and family friendly that is a very popular Halloween classic.

 After moving to a new town, Max Dennison explores an abandoned house with his sister Dani and their new friend, Allison. Max accidentally frees a coven of evil witches who used to live in the house. With the help of a magical cat , the kids must steal the witches book of spells to stop them from becoming immortal. 

When the movie begins, you see Max in the witches house, and his sister in a chair. The witches are trying to feed Emily a potion which allows them to absorb her youth and regain their own, killing her in the process. The movie has a little spooky touch to it, and it might scare younger viewers. You can follow through the journey with the kids as they fight off the witches on Halloween night.

Hocus Pocus is a good Halloween movie or a movie for anytime. It´s good for any mood you´re in. There are some scenes that are a little intense and unusual, like the talking cat scene when he dies and then comes back to life. Then you later learn that the cat is there to help the kids keep the witches gone. At first, I thought the movie was going to be a little weird or boring you could say, because of Max just moving into a new town. It seemed like any other movie that has the same scenario, but there´s a twist in this story.

There are not any aspects in this movie that I would like to point out. I genuinely love this movie and think the directors did a great job with this film. I would recommend this movie to anyone I think they would like this movie, especially families to watch with their little ones.

This movie was well created and has a good touch of a little spooky, funny, and weird. The whole theme with the witches gives it a good touch and makes it interesting. Hocus Pocus is one of the best Halloween movies and gets you in the spirit.
