October 31, 2013 The Three CommentEARS Episode 10: Hocus Pocus

Welcome back to From Screen to Theme's monthly series: The Three CommentEARS! Your commentators for this night of mischief and mayhem are Gamer Tuesday writer Pedro Hernandez, Saturday Matinee writer Albert Gutierrez, and Once Upon A Recap writer Kelvin Cede'o. For this episode, we take a look at 1993's Hocus Pocus, celebrating its twentieth anniversary. Each of us take different approaches to this film, primarily in terms of the film's connections to Disney's other forays into the supernatural and the macabre, tales from the production of the film, and several notable instances of illogical and anachronistic storytelling, while still celebrating the film's loving tribute to the Halloween season, viewers' reaction and nostalgia through the years, and our own personal views towards the film in both a childhood context and as revisited nostalgia.
