Hocus Pocus was released in 1993 and is still firmly in the hearts of all fans. It is an American film composed mainly in the genre of both fantasy and comedy. Kenny Ortega directed this story, while the script was written by both Neil Cuthbert and Mick Garris. As for the plot, the film sheds light on a trio of witches who are quite humorous throughout the story. They come in scenes of resurrection by a teenager who accidentally performs the task. It’s all happening in Salem, Massachusetts, right on the eve of Halloween. The time is set for October 31, 1963, when Thackery Binx watches as his sister is carried off into the woods by the Sanderson sisters. These are actually three witches named Winifred, as well as Sarah and Mary.
In this estranged cabin in the woods, they give Emily a potion that takes away her youth and kills her in the process. In return, the witch gets her youth. Binx tries to confront the three witches about the sin they have just committed, but they become annoyed and turn him into a black cat. He is cursed to live forever with the guilt for not saving Emily. Soon, the townspeople arrest the three sisters for the murder of Emily and Thackery and sentence them to death. However, Winifred casts a curse that the three sisters will return on a full moon on All Hallows’ Eve as a virgin blows light into the Black Flame Candle. Thackery takes care of guarding the cottage to make sure no one ever summons the witches.
The story then begins three centuries later, in 1993, when Max Dennison feels unwell in Salem because his parents abruptly moved him to Salem from Los Angeles, California. On Halloween night, Max and his younger sister Dani go trick or treating. Max develops a huge crush on a girl here named Allison. Wanting nothing more than to impress her, he invites her to the Sanderson house to prove that witches are real. In the cottage he lights the Black Flame Candle, and this awakens the witches because of his virginity.
