2011 October Horror Movie Challenge Movie 30: Hocus Pocus
This was one I somehow missed all my childhood until now, so I decided to check out the DVD. I happen to think it's cute, and it has witches, zombies, and the killing of children to gain immortality as a subplot, so I'm counting it as horror and anyone who doesn't like that can go play Jumanji and get sucked into the jungle for all I fucking care. At least then I won't have to deal with them anymore. The witches in this movie were a lot of fun, with Bette Midler even managing to creep me out a bit here and there. Plus add a young Thora Birch as the little sister who must fight the witches once her "airhead virgin" brother resurrects them, and we have a winner.
