"The witches are back!

Hocus pocus is back with a magically great sequel! I think that this movie rivaled the original for best movie and will definitely become an annual family Halloween favorite. Going into the movie I thought that it would be just another quick cash grab cashing in on the original HOWEVER this movie does the opposite, it creates a fun and interesting plot which above all is hilarious. Though some jokes were overplayed, I felt like it paid homage to the original instead of copying it.

Have a spooky Halloween! "
