Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy star as the Sanderson Sisters, three witches from the 17th century, bringing life and laughs to Disney’s dark cult fantasy.

After being forced by their parents to move from sunny Los Angeles to Salem, Max Dennison (Omri Katz) a skeptical 16 year old, and his 8 year old sister Dani (Thora Birch) find themselves exploring the old Sanderson’s house, along with the town’s leading teen queen and Halloween enthusiast Allison (Vinessa Shaw).

After dismissing a story Allison tells as superstitious, Max accidentally frees a coven of evil witches who used to live in the house. Now, with the help of a magical cat called Thackery Binx (Jason Marsden), the kids must steal the witches’ book of spells to stop them from becoming immortal.

Allow this unforgettable trio of enchantresses to put a spell on you this Halloween, and fight your hardest not to repeat their incantations! Still a sceptic? It’s time to get superstitious.
