Release Date Rewind : Hocus Pocus


Come little listeners, the time's come to play! Mark welcomes the Halloween Queen Solana Sorrento back to the show to hop on some brooms (or mops or vaccuums) and rejoice because it's the 30th anniversary of Hocus Pocus! Yes, this movie is basically the Pumpkin Spice of movies, but it cast a spell on them and on millions of people around the world and it never gets old. The two chat about how cool Salem is, the Spielberg connection, original casting ideas, deleted scenes, favorite lines (and incantations), and the scene-stealing Gary and Penny Marshall. Plus, they share their thoughts on the return of the Sanderson Sisters in Hocus Pocus 2 towards the end of this episode. Hang onto your heads!
Release Date Rewind
Movie nerd, filmmaker, and anniversary celebrator Mark J. Parker brings a friend on each episode to discuss movies (and sometimes TV shows and music) that are hitting milestone anniversaries of release that month. Think 20th anniversary, 25th, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th, 75th, you get it! They'll dive in together, discussing fun facts, memorable moments, and what makes these movies worth a rewind all these years later. Let's get nostalgic! The podcast logo is created by Greg Clements. The theme song is the instrumental version of "Dance This Out" by singer/songwriter Kyle Motsinger and producer Smoke and Mirrors.
