Hocus Pocus (1993)

This is an imperfect-but-creditable movie. In 1693 Salem, Massachusetts, Thackery Binx notices that his young sister Emily is being lured into the woods by an old hag. A cottage serves as the home of the Sanderson sisters, Mary (Kathy Najimy), Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Winifred (Bette Midler), a trio of evil witches. When Thackery is spotted he is turned into an immortal cat. 300 years later on Halloween, teenager Max Dennison, his young sister Dani, and his classmate Allison visit the old cottage and bring the three witches back to life. Now they have until sunlight to stop the witches and save the town's children.

Garry Marshall who is wearing the devil costume and Penny Marshall who plays the devil's wife are actually brother and sister.
