Classics never get old and such is the case of Hocus Pocus being one the most-watched Halloween movie of all time. Since its release in 1993, its annual airings made it possible for generations to carry over this cult classic especially during the Halloween season on American women born during the late 80s to the early 90s. Years passed and it remains to be rediscovered every re-release. Here is where you can watch and stream the movie for free online.
Hocus Pocus follows three villainous witches, the Sanderson sisters' comedic trio, Winifred, Sarah, and Mary, in Salem, Massachusetts, who was executed for absorbing the youth of a teen. Winifred cast a spell so they could be resurrected when a virgin lights the Black Flame Candle which should happen on a full moon on the All Hallows' Eve.
After three centuries, Max wanted to impress his crush so they went to the Sanderson House proving witches were real and they lit the Black Flame Candle resurrecting the witches and from then on, chaos ensued as the witches try to adjust to the early 20th century with Halloween becoming a festival of costumes and disguises.
