This Disney classic is high ranked on my list of must-sees. Hocus Pocus is a spin on the Salem Witch Trials. In this movie, witches arrive to the world and are horrified when they come to the realization that Halloween has become a holiday. Also, three girls have stolen their broomsticks which becomes quite the situation. If the witches don’t get what they need to achieve done by sunrise, they turn into dust.
