Classic goodness! I watched this movie in theatres back in 1993, and I still love it today!

I borrowed this DVD from my school back in 2012. You did not have this movie before.

The movie has its dry moments, but for the most part, it is cute.

I don't know why everyone always talks about how much they like this movie. The acting is atrocious. I was cringing the entire time and I couldn't wait until it was finished.

One of my all time favorite movies to watch on Halloween! It has something that everyone can love.

A Halloween classic featuring three not-too-scary-but-often-entertaining witches bringing mayhem to Salem in their efforts to stay alive by sucking the life-force out of Salem's children. Amazingly, I never saw this one as a child, and watching it as an adult, I couldn't decide whether I would have been frightened by it--as I was by "Ghost Busters II"--or thought this was the greatest Halloween movie ever. My favorite parts were the cat and Allison's sweater--yay '90's style!

Easy, fun, sometimes funny, enjoyable Halloween movie. Not a horror or scary movie, not for adults, although some may enjoy it. (We watch it every year around Halloween.) Also not for very young children.

Never saw this on cable or regular TV (even on VHS!) in the 90's. Thought this Halloween would give it a go. I believe the hype set me up for disappointment. Serviceable Halloween kiddie fare. Nothing too scary, although the bus driver scene(s) threw in some subtle adult banter that might raise eyebrows with some alert parents.

This is one of those movies you have to watch around Halloween! Some locations in the movie were actually filmed in Salem, which gives an authentically spooky feel to the story. Just as good as when I was a kid!

This is a classic 90s movie but fun for Halloween. Try to watch it every year in October.
