Blu-Ray Spotlight and Giveaway! Hocus Pocus Anniversary Edition

HOCUS POCUS Anniversary Edition [Blu-ray]

Synopsis:
In “Hocus Pocus,” the Sanderson sisters are in for a devil of a time when their restless spirits are accidentally conjured up on Halloween night, in 1993 Salem, Massachusetts. Banished 300 years ago for practicing their sorcery, this trio of triple-threat demons vowed to one day reappear—and now they’re back—weaving an outrageous web of comedy and chaos. However, to guarantee their immortality, the things they need are the very things that could bring them down: Max Dennison (Omri Katz), his little sister Dani (Thora Birch), and the Allison (Vinessa Shaw), three kids with the power to make or break the witches’ spell.

Review:
I can’t believe it’s been 25 years since the release of this Halloween classic! Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy make for an unforgettable trio of hilarious witches. And for the masses who have seen the movie, the “Treats and Trivia” edition is a lot of fun. There are pop-up video facts, illustrations, deleted scenes, interesting commentaries, and more. It would’ve been nice if some of these things, like deleted scenes were separate from having to re-watch the actual film along side. But it is a nice edition with plenty of fascinating, behind-the-scenes clips.

Bonus Features:
BLU-RAY & DIGITAL*:
• We ♥︎ “Hocus Pocus”: Trivia and Treats Edition – A spellbinding new way to experience the film with:
o Fun facts and trivia
o Deleted scenes
o Cast and crew commentary
o Concept art and storyboards
o Behind-the-scenes secrets, and more!
• Original 1993 Production Featurette – Discover that witchcraft is cinematic artistry in disguise in this resurrected throwback production featurette.

*Bonus features may vary by retailer

Fantasy Book Review: The Door to the Lost

The Door to the Lost by Jaleigh Johnson

Synopsis:
There was no warning the day magic died in Talhaven. It happened with a giant explosion and the arrival of a skyship full of children, all with magic running through their veins and no memory of home.

Rook and Drift are two of those children, and ever since that day, they’ve been on the run, magical refugees in a world that doesn’t trust magic. Because magic doesn’t die right away–it decays, twists, and poisons all that it touches. And now it’s beginning to poison people.

Try as they might, Rook and Drift can’t remember anything about their lives before Talhaven. But it’s beginning to look like they’re the only ones who can save their adopted world . . . if that world doesn’t destroy them first.

Review:
Rook and Drift survive by selling use of their magical services. However, most people condemn anything magical as it has begun to kill their world. When a job goes wrong, Rook and Drift find themselves outside of the city and in dangerous land where magic is chaotic. And the friends have to find a way to stop a magical explosion from destroying their new world.

The Door to the Lost is a standalone middle reader fantasy. There is a fascinating backstory with a big mystery that is finally revealed at the end. There is plenty of danger, suspense, and drama. And the characters are engaging as well. This is an exciting fantasy story with individuals who have unique abilities. It’s unpredictable and well-paced. I hope to read more novels set in this captivating world.
