The 90's Halloween movies are obviously some of our favorites. Who doesn't love the feel-good film Hocus Pocus?
"Released in theaters in 1993, the Touchstone Pictures comedy passed by unnoticed, but has since become a staple Halloween movie aired on television every October. Bette Midler’s performance is terrific here, portraying the perfect mix of terrifying witch and bossy older sister as Winifred Sanderson, a role which nicely sets up a comic fight between siblings Sarah Sanderson (Sarah Jessica Parker), a boy crazy seductress, and Mary Sanderson (Kathy Najimy). Director Kenny Ortega and screenwriters Mick Garris and Neil Cuthburt give the villains a playful and endearing love/hate sibling dynamic with a Three Stooges style that cannot be beat." - BlogCritics
One of our favorite films received negative reviews from the New York Times and Rotten Tomatoes - However I refuse to give up this Autumn tradition. Don't mess with this 90's child. Also, I did not wear enough velvet in the 90's, here's my chance to fulfill that dream.
a day in the life in Hocus Pocus: what to wear and what to do (in no particular order) …
one. Nina Simone (perfection) and 'I put a spell on you" should be playing in your home this Halloween.
two. have you noticed that the Sanderson Sisters do not wear the traditional witches hat? we did. Put on a pretty velvet bow instead.
four. pile on the rings to get for that witchy touch
five. red lipstick. Do it.
six. velvet boots of course. For chasing children.
seven. make it a classic costume by adding the witchy-stripped socks.
