Hocus Pocus was a curious case when it was released in 1993. It flopped at the box office, and was killed by the critics (it still only has a 30% on the Tomato Meter), but then something magical happened. It was released on video and later DVD, and became a perennial on TV at Halloween. Over time it achieved cult status, and over 20 years after its release, has become a beloved classic for many people.
It’s generated a Disney World stage show, the royal treatment from pop culture prince Todrick Hall, and calls for a sequel (which stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy have all said they’re up for. Let’s get someone on that, please)
And of course, it’s been given years of fan love online, and now Youtube personality Traci Hines has delivered her own tribute to her 250,000 followers.
Traci is best known for her Little Mermaid tribute, but she and her friends Lauren Matesic and Chrissy Lynn have done justice to the Sanderson sisters, putting great care, detail and energy into “I Put A Spell On You.”
And here’s Traci as Sarah with “Come Little Children.”
