EJ Moreno with a video review of Hocus Pocus 2…
Hocus Pocus 2, the long-awaited sequel to the 90s cult classic, is finally here. Sadly, critic EJ Moreno finds the film lacking a unique charm that made the original movie special.
Throughout the runtime of Hocus Pocus 2, we see the filmmakers and actors trying to recapture the original’s magic; not even these witches can conjure up that spell. Camp can not be manufactured, same with nostalgia as well. In this review, check out what our critic feels are the problems and how they teased a prequel that could’ve been the better choice.
