I Smell (90s) Children

The story of how Hocus Pocus went from a box office flop to a cult classic is one of my favorites.  You see Hocus Pocus was originally released in theaters in July of 1993, that also happens to be when Jurassic Park hit theaters.  Obviously, a Halloween move in July going against Jurassic Park the odds were not in Hocus Pocus' favor.  However after the movie became a TV staple around Halloween time, the rest is history.  I grew up in the 90s, and I remember watching Hocus Pocus every Halloween season, and to this day it's one of my favorite movies.  To say I gasped when I saw this announcement is an understatement!

So light the Black Flame Candle and let's head to Nashville!

Partial Hocus Pocus Cast Reunion Heading to Nashville Horror Con

Evansville's inaugural Horror Con took place in March of 2023, and it was so successful, that not only does Evansville Horror Con need a bigger venue for 2024 (more on that here), but the founders of Horror Con also expanded to the horror-themed convention to music city.

Nashville Horror Con will take place July 21st through 22nd, 2024 and the first celebrity guest announcement is already huge as it's a trio of cast members from Hocus Pocus! Omri Katz who you know as Max Dennison,  Vanessa Shaw who you know as Allison, and of course Jason Marsden who you know as Binx!
