Hocus Pocus (1993) - Part 1, Nostalgia Review + More Halloween Fun!


It’s all just a bunch of Hocus Pocus! It’s the witching hour for On Second Watch as we explore what is widely considered to be THE Halloween movie, 1993's American fantasy-comedy film, "Hocus Pocus".

For the first time ever, Tim is the only one that has not seen the movie we’re about to review. To make this one extra special, Dana has taken over as host!

We explore the non-horror and Halloween movies that have terrifying moments, from Willy Wonka to The Brave Little Toaster, we cover all of ours and many of our listeners terrifying scenes.

We continue with Mad Lib shenanigans and welcome Spaz into the sisterhood of the traveling pants. In the word’s of Bette Midler, “Tis Time!” to jump into our nostalgia…
