Turn your baseball caps sideways to pass as either a rap singer or a New Kid on the Block, because here in the UK it's officially All Hallows Eve and therefore time to watch Hocus Pocus!

There is an obvious lack of genre savvy in this movie!

I can make a case for it with Max, since he's our resident skeptic. But Allison, who is really into witches, should know better at certain points.

Dani is so much the Simon of this movie--the youngest, and often the only one with any common sense!

I would do the same if someone murdered me and mutilated my corpse

But then, if I'd cheated on her with her sister, maybe I had it coming...

I totally miss-guessed David Yost's age when Power Rangers was on and now feel like a dumbass.

I realize this has nothing to do with Hocus Pocus but I had to share.

I watched this movie with my useless black housecat. (Who I love beyond the telling of it, but still.)

And I kept remembering Jason's commentary about how Binx was actually played by many black cats who could do one trick each. Have decided if the sequel needs a cat whose one trick is knocking bottles out of the liquor cabinet for no reason, Wensleydale here should totally audition.

Movie!Binx seems like the kind of person/cat who would do that. Your Binx is well in for a role in the sequel!

Yep, my iPhone is named after a black cat and my black cat is named after a cheese.

It's fun to watch him react to Wallace & Gromit and any audio version of Good Omens.

lol, I just remember watching this and being really confused at how old Max is supposed to be. As a kid, I thought he looked pretty much the same age as the later Eerie episodes, so the whole thing about virginity was like '...huh? He's like, 14, why wouldn't he be a virgin?' But then Vinessa Shaw looked mature for her age...

The first time I saw this I was too little to know what a virgin was, and my mum told me it was someone who'd never been kissed, which makes so much sense in context compared to, you know, grownups and eight year olds mocking a fourteen year old for being a virgin.

At the start, when Max gives Allison his number and the class lets out, there's a kid who goes up to him like, "Hey Max, fat chance!"

And we never learn his name or see him again, and he has no bearing on the rest of the plot, so what, is he just some kid who goes around crushing everyone's hopes and dreams?
