The 1993 film Hocus Pocus was supposed to be a box office hit, but it failed. However, in the video (there was no streaming yet), it broke. The magic’s secret is uncertain, but the spell “got it”.
The story of the Sanderson sisters, a trio of somewhat clumsy (but cruel) witches (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy) who are inadvertently resurrected by a teenage virgin in Salem, Massachusetts, on Halloween night, has become a reference. on the Halloween holiday.
The original cast would feature Cloris Leachman (replaced by Bette Midler) and Leonardo DiCaprio almost played the teenager who brought them back to life. The cult status gained momentum with the party, where witches circulate unidentified and sing I Put A Spell On You.
Now, 29 years later, the sequel is on Disney Plus, with self-references and updating of some themes, such as the sisterhood that unites the original and current witches. Yep, Hocus Pocus 2 brings the witches back to Salem, just as hungry for children and struggling to get the spell right.
No spoilers, because otherwise, it spoils a lot, it has the participation of Hannah Waddingham and yes, another show by the Sanderson sisters, now with the success of Blondie: One Way or Another. A perfect distraction for the month of Halloween.
