Hocus Pocus 2 poster


November 13, 2022


A pretty decent update of the original Hocus Pocus, though I will say I never saw that one as a kid, so I don't hold very dear memories of it. It's still pretty camp, but with a Disney 2022 spin on it, meaning it's all a bit nicer and cleaner than the original. On the upside, the production values have increased considerably too.

Almost 30 years after their first appearance, the witches are making a return. This time, they're even more adamant to make Salem their own. But a young, budding witch and her two friends will do everything to stop their hometown from becoming the playground of these oldskool witches.

The "witches in modern time" gags are a bit lame and the Disney teen sauce isn't all that scrumptious either, but it's nice that they got the old cast to return and they are visibly having fun. It's not a very necessary or notable sequel, but at least it wasn't nearly as bad as it could've been.
