You have no idea how excited I was to see that not only was Hocus Pocus being made into a novel, but also learning there was going to be a sequel. Hocus Pocus is still one of my all time favorite Halloween movies. I watch it every single year in October. I know I am not the only one who loves belting out "I've put a spell on you!" And Thackery Binx is one of my favorite feline characters ever! So to find out I was go ...more
(Lbr y'all... it's probably going to be bad, but imma read it anyway.)
Trying not to let childhood nostalgia get in the way of a fair review, but it is hard. So hard. The wickedly wonderful Sanderson sisters are back with continued antics. And it's fun, without feeling that scared feeling of nighttime in a cemetery with ghosts and spell books and witches and zombies. There is adventure and family history dredged up, or unearthed, which leads to secrets and finding out the truth about your parents.

3.5 rating. I love Hocus Pocus. It's my favorite Halloween movie and I just adore Bette Midler as Winnifred Sanderson. I was so excited to read this book. I liked that the author stayed true to the movie and the characters. The sequel left me wanting more. The writing was mediocre and the story was missing something. I don't know but the charm in the movie was not reflected in this book. The magic just wasn't there which is sad considering the book is about witches and magic is essential. Maybe ...more
I WOULD SELL MY SOUL FOR A COPY OF THIS NOW
PLEASE, OH PLEASE OH PLEASE OH PLEASE DO NOT DISAPPOINT ME.
A mess, a mess, a mess!
Oh my. How I've longed for and dreaded this day.
"Hocus Pocus" is such a lightning-in-a-bottle film. Like other cult movies, it was panned on release but managed to gain a wide base of loyal fans...including me! I can't think of another film that manages to capture the joy of the holiday quite as well: the beautiful aesthetic; the nostalgia; the barely restrained sense of adventure; and the big, over-the-top goofiness that's tempered by just the right amount of danger.
A solid 3.5. The writing was more enjoyable than I really expected. The first half was slow because I have the movie memorized, but really enjoyed the sequel.
