Hocus Pocus 2

Arriving nearly 30 years after its predecessor, “Hocus Pocus 2” reunites Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker as the Sanderson Sisters, Salem’s favorite wisecracking witches, for another adventure.

Back in 1993, the idea of a “Hocus Pocus” sequel would have seemed unlikely as the film underperformed at the box office and was ravaged by critics. Over the years, thanks to home video and cable, its reputation and popularity grew, and, now, it is a bona fide cult hit.
