One of the filming locations in Salem is the exterior of the building in today's song, which is also one of the best scenes in the movie. While the Sanderson sisters are on a mission to suck the souls of the town's children, they stop in at a Halloween party and bewitch most of Salem's adults by embedding a spell in their performance of Screamin' Jay Hawkins "I Put A Spell On You." With all the childrens' parents taken care of, the Sandersons are free to continue their witchy pursuits.

Also sad I missed a Hocus Pocus reunion screening at Disneyland in 2013, which several of the original cast and crew attended. Then just last year Disney did a Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular as part of their annual Halloween celebration. With all the love and attention Hocus Pocus keeps getting, seems like a sequel isn't too much to ask for! Let's all cross our broomsticks and say a little spell along with the Sanderson sisters.
Here's the other classic song from the film, "Come Little Children." This one is sung by Sarah Jessica Parker, and is the one song from the score written by James Horner. He was supposed to score the whole film, but had to drop out at the last minute. If you have children, make sure they listen closely to this one in order for it to have its full effect.
