Movie Review: Hocus Pocus 2

Hocus Pocus 2
September 30, 2022
Directed By: Anne Fletcher 
Screenplay: Jen D’Angelo 
Based on characters created by David Kirschner and Mick Garris. 
Stars: Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy
Music by: John Debney
Three young women accidentally bring back the Sanderson Sisters to modern day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking havoc on the world. 

Two teenage girls light a candle given to one of them by Gilbert, owner of a shop of magic, for her 16th birthday. Thinking of using it to bring their other friend back to them, instead, it lights a black flame and brings back the Sanderson sisters. This time the three witches are out to destroy Salem, but most of all, the mayor as he is a direct descendent of the Reverend Traske, who banished them from Salem in the 1600s. This includes Becca’s and Izzy’s friend, Cassie, who happens to be the mayor’s daughter, also a direct descendent. 

At first, it started off a tiny bit bland to me, but once the three sisters are revived from death, the movie hits on overdrive. We even get to see Billy Butcherson once again. 

Stay after the end of the credits—there is an extra scene that might be a teaser maybe for another movie. 

I give Hocus Pocus 2 5 witchy sheep.
