Hocus Pocus ★★★★½

84

A charming dose of autumn chills, and a wonderful family film that still finds the space to ruminate on the comfort of death and the passage of time. So spooky. That prologue with the lucid purples and greens against the dull brisk look of the woods still sweeps me off my feet, not to mention the impeccable trio casting of the witches and its scrumptious Halloween setting! If this isn't in your October viewing, rent it or buy it or turn on Freeform - it's probably playing right now (for the 100th time)!
