Silly but irresistible.

This comedy is unusually dark for a Disney production and it makes for patchy entertainment.

All things considered, Hocus Pocus is much more entertaining than a pimple-people picture has a right to be.

Hocus Pocus remains a delightful family comedy, spooky but never scary as it romps its merry way through the graveyard.

For an 11-year-old boy (in 1993) already in love with horror movies, Halloween and Thora Birch, Hocus Pocus was my dream movie sprung to life.

It's clear that everyone involved in making the film had the time of their lives, and that translates on-screen into a family film that's a thrilling and funny romp from start to finish.

Dismayingly grisly for a movie aimed at kids.

They probably should have left this misfire in the broom closet -- with the other wooden vehicles.

This is one of the oddest releases of the summer, and it's hard to imagine it finding a broad audience. With the rather ghoulish deaths of children depicted, it's certainly too strong for very young moviegoers.

Forget amusement parks and hockey teams. It's in movie comedies that Disney is having its real crisis, as evidenced by this would-be laugh-getter that begins with the murder of a child and a triple hanging.

Though children may be satisfied (if the witch stuff doesn't scare them) adults will have a harder time with the by-the-numbers confrontations between the witches and the plucky youths.

Dreadful.

Hocus Pocus is harmless, but it's about as much fun as celebrating Mardi Gras under the influence of candy corn.

As Shakespeare would have certainly written if he'd been on the movie beat, "Double, double toil and trouble, movie stink and critic bubble/'Hocus Pocus' has no focus/has no rhyme, has no reason/ and is... out of season."
