24 Hocus Pocus Sayings for the Halloween Season

If you lived through the 90s (are we accidentally aging ourselves??), you certainly know and love the classic Halloween movie, Hocus Pocus. And, if you didn’t, we highly recommend you watch it this Halloween season.

In case you’ve never seen it or it’s been a while since you’ve watched it (like maybe the last time you watched it was on VHS), here’s a little recap:

A teenager, Max, moves to Salem, Massachusetts and explores an old house with his sister and new friend. Although he initially says he doesn’t believe in the superstitious tale about the haunted house, he accidentally awakes a coven of witches that have been under a spell since the 1600s. With the help of a magical cat, the three kids must steal the witches’ book of spells to keep them from becoming immortal.

Sounds like a movie that bubbles over with excitement, right? We love lots of Halloween movies, but Hocus Pocus is in our top five, for sure. There’s just something about 90s nostalgia that we’ll always love. And, in our opinion, Hocus Pocus is full of outlandish comedy, bewitching laughs, and quirky lines. You’ll laugh, maybe get a little spooked, and then laugh some more!
