Hocus Pocus, the 1993 Disney movie which follows the antics of three villainous witches brought back to life in Salem, Massachusetts, cemented its reputation as a beloved cult-classic over the last decade or so.

It became so fondly-remembered, in fact, that the cable television channel Freeform just announced it will be hosting a celebration on Saturday, October 20th, to commemorate the movie's 25th anniversary!

And you'll never guess who will be dropping in...


E! News reports the anniversary celebration will show interviews with stars "Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Omri Katz, Thora Birch, Doug Jones, Amanda Shepherd, Larry Bagby, Jason Marsden and Tobias Jelinek, as well as director Kenny Ortega, writers Mick Garris and David Kirschner, choreographer Peggy Holmes and composer John Debney."

It looks like pretty much everyone is coming back!


As if that weren't enough, Sharon Osbourne and Kelly Osbourne will be judging a Hocus Pocus costume contest while Drag queen Lady Bunny acts as DJ and fans await a possible appearance by Bette Midler herself.



Just before the special event, Freeform will be airing a special "Pop'n Knowledge" edition of the film, which features "trivia, observations and commentary" around important moments.

This is all working up to Halloween, October 31, when Freeform will be showing a non-stop marathon of the movie, though by that point we might be all Hocus Pocus'd out.

Watch the promo from Freeform here:


Fans are counting the nights until the Halloween-themed bash!






Of course, if you're a true fan, you might want to start watching Hocus Pocus before the Halloween rush!



Why wait‽

Let's all start watching the movie non-stop right now. We only need one break and that's to watch the Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary special on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 8:15 p.m. on Freeform.

Other than that, this is our life for the next month:

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
