Synopsis:
In 1693, the citizens of Salem, Massachusetts go into a frenzy when they discover that 3 among them -- Winifred, Sarah and Mary Sanderson -- are witches. Fearing their pagan villainy, the community agrees to hang the old hags. But head sorceress Winifred vows they'll come back to life one day and seek vengeance. 300 years later, Max, a cynical teenager stuck chaperoning his kid sister as she goes trick-or-treating, is spotted by classmate-dream girl Allison. In order to impress her, Max lures them into the Sanderson sisters' house where they accidentally bring the wretched shrews back to life. The witches now have one night to renew their life force -- or they'll disappear forever. Can the kids stop them from achieving their nasty purposes?

Notes:
As directed by Kenny Ortega, `Hocus Pocus' relies heavily on visual and special effects. For example, the mystical talking cat is computer-generated, and thanks to stylized matte photography, the director was able to pull off a number of other visual illusions. Rated BBFC PG by the British Board of Film Classification. Shot in Technicolor.
