The most iconic Halloween movie that doesn’t involve a man in a mask stabbing people is Hocus Pocus. Three witches are released to run rampant on during a full moon on All Hallows’ Eve when a virgin lights the Black Flame Candle after hundreds of years. What do they want? to sacrifice a girl that makes them young and beautiful forever! Who is gonna stop them? A cat and a couple of saucy kids.
The movie stars Bette Midler as Winifred “Winnie” Sanderson, Sarah Jessica Parker as Sarah Sanderson, and Kathy Najimy as Mary Sanderson, and there has been some talk of a sequel almost thirty years later. Which I would eat up with a spoon:

Until then, Yahoo reports that there’s still a chance we’ll see the faces of the Sanderson sisters on the streets. In mask form. Bucktee.com is selling masks that resemble the faces of each sister made from two layers of ” ultra breathable nylon spandex.”
We’ve got Sarah:

And the ring leader, Winnie:
You know, looking at all of these masks, I really think we need to give a shout out to the costume and makeup designers of Hocus Pocus, who really managed to make three very distinct tooth looks for our witchy ladies. I’d also like to shout out Bucktee for finding a way to make it feel possible to celebrate Halloween while also protecting ourselves from infecting each other while haunting the streets—and for only $13.95 plus shipping!
While I will not be going out and trick-or-treating, I may just throw on a Winnie mask at home and recreate this scene where the sisters compel everyone to “dance until they die.”
Yep. Me and the cats, dancing the night away. Very spooky.
