Movie of the week!

Yes, its that time again! Time for a brand new movie of the week! 

This week's movie is one of my all time faves! A film that I watched and loved when I was younger and bought on DVD as a grown up! As Halloween draws nearer its also the best time to watch it!

This week's movie of the week is Hocus Pocus!

Staring Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker, the movie tells the story of the Sanderson sisters during the Salem witch trial era.

Punished for their crimes they are sentenced to death but not before they cast a spell allowing them to return at anytime with a simple lighting of a candle.

300 years later the disbelieving Max Dennison moves to Salem from Los Angeles with his sister Dani and their parents. Desperate to impress Allison, a girl from his local school that has already spurned his advances, Max lights the black flame candle. Expecting it to be "a bunch of hocus pocus", he's alarmed when the Sanderson sisters do actually return!

On the advice of the talking black cat, Thackery Binx, Max takes their spell book and makes off into the night with Allison, Dani and the cat, with the sisters hot on their tail! 

Will the witches track them down? Will Max be able to banish them once and for all? 

Well its Halloween night so anything can happen! 

The Disney made Hocus Pocus is a great family friendly Halloween movie but there are a couple of scenes which maybe frightening for little ones. I'll be quite honest I didn't intend to let our 3 year old, Joseph, watch it but he picked it out and was quite happy watching it. It's rated PG but if you've not seen it before maybe give it a pre-watch before the kids do. 

On the run up to Halloween Hocus Pocus will probably pop up on the TV but if you can't wait its currently available from Amazon for the bargain £2.99! Click here to take a look! 

Happy watching!
