E.128 Hocus Pocus Focus



On this special Halloween episode of the Obscure Disney Podcast, we enjoy talking about a nostalgic classic, Hocus Pocus. We talk about the movie’s production, the music, and the lasting legacy of the Sanderson Sisters and the virgin lighting the black flame candle.

 

Hocus Pocus is a 1993 American comedy horror fantasy film directed by Kenny Ortega, starring Bette MidlerKathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker; written by Neil Cuthbert and Mick Garris, and based on a story by Garris and David Kirschner. It follows the villainous trio of witches, who are inadvertently resurrected by a teenage male virgin in Salem, Massachusetts.

Although it was not a critical or commercial success when first released, Hocus Pocus has become a cult film,[3] largely from annual airings on Disney Channel and Freeform (formerly ABC Family).
