HOCUS POCUS is a 1993 fantasy comedy in which three witches return to Salem three hundred years after their execution.

Threat and horror

A young girl is briefly menaced by witches. A zombie arises from a grave and briefly menaces a group of children. A zombie uses a knife to unstitch his mouth. There are also scenes in which children and teenagers are lured to the witches' house by supernatural means.

Violence

There are brief scenes of comic violence, including a scene in which a zombie's fingers are severed, and another in which a talking cat is run over but subsequently makes a full and rapid recovery. There is a brief hanging scene in which three women are executed in the 17th century; detail is limited.

Sex

There are undetailed references to virgins.

There are infrequent scenes of smoking. There is also some very mild bad language (for example, 'trollop', 'moron', 'jerk', 'damn', 'God', 'stuff it', 'hell').
