3. Hocus Pocus
Over three centuries ago, the Sanderson sisters were sentenced to death in Salem for their practice of witchcraft. They liked to suck the life out of children. But before their death, the sisters managed to cast a spell that would bring them back when the special black flame candle was lit.
One fateful Halloween, a teenager is stuck taking his little sister trick-or-treating. During the evening, he lights the black flame candle. Instantly, the three Sanderson sisters are brought back. Now it’s up to the kids to make things right again before the sisters can harm anyone else.

In this movie, a teenager wishes her baby brother would be taken by the Goblin King. To her surprise, he is. She now has just a short amount of time to make her way through the labyrinth to the king’s castle. If she doesn’t make it by midnight, her brother will be turned into a goblin.
As she makes her way through the strange labyrinth, the teen discovers many strange creatures and must overcome many obstacles. Will she make it to her brother in time? You’ll have to watch and see.
