56 'Hocus Pocus' Quotes to Kickoff Spooky Season

It's undeniable that one of the most classic Halloween movies of all time is Disney's Hocus Pocus. The film has a little bit of everything for everyone: witches, spells, humor, zombies and other elements that truly make Halloween, well, Halloween. But if we're honest, one of the best things about the iconic film, starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, is the writing.

If you’re anything like me, then you also struggle to let spooky season go by without belting out Winifred Sanderson’s “I put a spell on you,” or the many other memorable lines from the film that make you laugh.

The movie has also held on to its relevance for nearly 30 years, amassing a fanbase so strong that many travel to Salem, Massachusetts just to see some of the places where the movie was filmed. If you consider yourself on this level of superfan, then you may also want to check out what the actors have been up to since and how much they have changed. Once you're all caught up, you'll have even more reasons to watch the highly anticipated sequel, Hocus Pocus 2, streaming on Disney+.

There's no doubt that the September 30 premiere will inspire you to create your your best costume later this Halloween and these Hocus Pocus quotes definitely encompass everything about the Sanderson Sisters.
