Fannish insanity and social justice rage, all in one helpful place! eleanor_lavish on LJ and AO3, if you're wondering why all this seems eerily familiar...

 

The act of renting ‘Hocus Pocus’ — giving it a temporary home one evening during the month of October — feels as tied to Halloween as the movie itself. It’s not a movie you keep, but instead one you revisit every year out of obligation to your childhood. You seek it out. You enjoy it. You put it away. Because what is this holiday but candy, the color orange, pumpkin spice fill-in-the-blank, costumes, and family fantasy movies starring Bette Midler? Yes, ‘Hocus Pocus’ is an important part of this holiday, but it’s also a Disney movie about three sister cannibals who come back to life because a virgin lights a candle. And that’s weird.
