Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! It's Halloween and this week we've got to have a great one. This week's featured movie is a Halloween classic and one of my personal favorites, Hocus Pocus!
Hocus Pocus came out in 1993 and stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as the three Sanderson Sisters, a family of witches. In 1693 right as the sisters are about to be hung by an angry mob, they cast a spell to resurrect themselves on All Hallows Eve when a virgin lights their black flamed candle. Flash forward to October 31, 1993 when Max (Omri Katz) the new kid in town visits the Sanderson Sister museum with his younger sister Dani (Thora Birch). Trying to impress a girl who's one of his new classmates and friend he lights the candle. The Sanderson sisters are back in town!

Before the night comes to an end with sunrise the Sanderson sisters must cast another spell and suck the life out of all the children in town to regain their youth and live forever. Not only does Max at fault for the sisters being back, it becomes really personal because the sisters take Dani from him and will plan to take her life. Now Max along with his classmate and some unlikely new pals must join together to stop them and before the sun comes up.

This movie has become a cult classic over time and no year can pass without watching Hocus Pocus. If you've never seen this then do yourself a favor and watch this movie for a treat!
