There are a few things necessary in my life for Halloween to feel like it’s truly here. Definitely candy corn, pumpkins everywhere, those annoying whizzing ghosts that make that spooky “OooOooOoo” noise and are often found near grocery store registers, and the Disney classic of 1993, Hocus Pocus starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and a very young Thora Birch.
For those not familiar (you should be shunned and banished from any and all Halloween festivities for like, ever), I strongly suggest you check out this cute, family oriented film if you’re into that sort of thing. Also, how much Disney stuff is associated with Halloween this year?! This blog has become mostly Disney this month, it’s a little ridiculous. Anyway, not only did I watch Hocus Pocus last night thus indicating that Halloween is in fact here, but I realized it was its 20th anniversary! I saw this movie 20 years ago?! Fuck, I’m old! And you know who else is? Thora Birch and the rest of the cast. Apparently some of the cast reunited for a screening this month held by D23. The worst part? I was in town when this happened and had NO idea. Epic fail. However, this picture of Thora in her old witch hat cheers me up a bit:
