Hocus Pocus

It's always funny when witches play tricks on unsuspecting humans without arousing suspicion, right? Wrong! Hocus Pocus is about wicked witches who magically cast a spell on three innocents and turn them into the witches' personal slaves. One of the three witches sentenced to death is Mary Sanderson, who is transported to 1988 Salem where she continues to cast spells on unsuspecting humans without arousing suspicion.

Were the Sanderson Sisters Based on Real Witches?

Hocus Pocus claims that the Sanderson sisters were hanged in Salem on October 31, 1693.

While the names and date are fictional, the gruesome siblings on screen were indeed loosely based on the victims of the real Salem Witch Trials. Between February 1692 and May 1693, girls as young as four were put on trial for practicing witchcraft; 19 people were ultimately executed. The true story is much more grim than the Disneyfied version, but producers decided on a more lighthearted version with flying vacuums and talking cats.
