Hocus Pocus 

I put a spell on you, and now you’re mine. We all have seen this classic, and each time we watch it, it makes us want to go back in time to the 90’s. Directed by Kenny Ortega, it’s more of a comedy than a horror movie. But it makes you want to get into the Halloween spirit with Bette Midler and Sarah Jessica Parker.
