A cheesy classic of a Halloween movie. I wouldn't even call it a cult classic, this is a bonafide Halloween classic.

If you have not seen this movie, YOU NEED TOO! Whether it's during Halloween or Easter, this movie will always make you laugh, want to sing along, or believe in magic again. Bette Midler plays Winifred Sanderson and they could not have chosen a better actress. Her expressions, her vocal range, and her movements bring out every part of her character that even though she's the antagonist in the story, its almost sad to see her go. This is definitely a story for all ages. For my family and I, we watch it every Halloween.

Finally got around to watching this gem the other day. Not sure how I managed to live 22 years of my life without seeing it but it was a great movie. Very well done!

This is one of my favorite Halloween movies and it is quite charming, funny and entertaining! It is a great family film and full of 90's nostalgia.

Really! These three witches only stay alive by sucking the life out of children. Plenty of special effects and hambone acting, but no humor. This gives Disney family entertainment a bad name. Not recommended.
I notice that two previous commenters call it "cheesy." They say that like it was a _good_ thing.

This delivered exactly what I wanted: some cheesy 90's reminiscence , a cute story-line, and fun characters. I also like that the main message is about sibling love, very wholesome indeed!

If I could offer up a one sentence review: More hocus, less pocus. Bette Middler, Sarah Jessica Parker (SJP), and Kathy Nimjay are three witch sisters executed in old timey Salem. Three centuries later they return on Halloween night! Can the plucky teens stop them? Since it's Disney, nothing is too scary or freaky. Fun for the whole family.

This is my absolute favorite movie to watch around Halloween! The hilarity, adventure and fun is perfect for the whole family. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy will forever live as the legendary Sanderson sisters!
