After three centuries, three witch sisters are resurrected in Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween night, and it is up to two teenagers, a young girl, and an immortal cat to put an end to their reign of terror once and for all.
Early in the film, after his teacher has finished telling the Sanderson Sisters' story, Max doodles on a piece of paper. The doodle reads "the grateful dead," with a marijuana leaf above it.
Thackery Binx: Hast thou seen my sister Emily?
Elijah: Nay. But look.
Elijah: They conjure.
Thackery Binx: Oh, God. The woods!
Thackery Binx: Emily!
Elijah: She's done for.
Thackery Binx: Not yet! You wake my father. Summon the elders. Go!
Before they go trick or treating, Dani tells Max there is a full moon out. The movie is set in 1993, and the last time Halloween had a full moon was 1974. The next one will be in 2020.
During the end credits, the parents finally stop dancing and leave the building, exhausted; Jay and Ernie have been forgotten about and are still dangling in their cages, singing Row Row Row Your Boat, then the camera pans over to the spell book as the eye opens once more.
