Review: Hocus Pocus

Goodness, the final week of Halloween (October for those who aren’t in the know) and I have been slacking on my scary movie viewing. The only movie I have watched so far was the cult classic Hocus Pocus, which is required viewing this time of year. It was every bit of fun and goofy as I remembered. There were lots of beautiful period costumes in the movie, including the first few minutes (a scene taking place in the late 1600’s), when Max (the protagonist) goes to his crush’s house, and the party where Max’s parents are. In the pictures below we see Valerie, Max’s crush, at her parent’s party.

Here we see her in a lovely robe à la française, minus the ornate ruffles and bows. In the background we see all the party attendees in various rococo dress, compete with wigs. I can officially say that I’m envious that her parents “do this every year”. There were also many lovely period costumes in the other party scene, including some medieval-esque dresses, rococo, and some fairy tale dresses.

On a side note, I don’t know if it was just a movie thing or something Salem really does but those house decorations and party set ups were extremely lavish. Either they go all out or Martha Stewart is a-foot.
