I think I might have been a tad too old when I first saw Hocus Pocus on VHS. But I still have all the nostalgia for Bette Midler and co. As some one who grew up in a place where Halloween was the biggest of deals, this felt the warmest invitation to me into Halloween. Well, that and Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin.
Hocus Pocus is such a theatrical and large movie. It fits Midler's aesthetic and she looks like she is having a blast. I am a sucker for a midway musical number that stops a movie cold.
Hocus Pocus is just fun even it makes one to many jokes about Virgins.
