Movies about witchcraft are amazing and magical. Some of them are whimsical, some are scary, and some are appropriately true to life, but whether they're outlandish or realistic, films about witchcraft are fun and exciting to watch. It's finally October, my favorite month out of the year, so I wanted to share some really incredible films with you. Now, by no means is this list complete – there are tons of movies revolving around witchcraft and magic floating around out there, after all! These are just some of my favorites, so take a look, have a good time, and then share which magical witchcraft movies you watch over and over again!
I could happily watch Hocus Pocus every day of the year and never get tired of it. It's been one of my favorite movies about witchcraft since the first time I saw it: at the drive-in when it came out. My parents bundled me up, popped a huge bag of their own popcorn, and put me to sleep in the backseat after it was over, whereupon I had dreams of Salem, Massachusetts, never dreaming I would one day live 15 minutes away. Real life Salem is even cooler than the film depicts, by the way, but I've yet to meet a witch as singularly fabulous as Bette Midler's Winifred Sanderson. Her cover of “I Put a Spell on You” is nothing less than magical.
