There is no better spooky season activity than watching Hocus Pocus — except maybe watching the iconic Halloween-time film a little bit drunk. Whether you’ve seen Max, Dani, and Allison battle the Sanderson Sisters 100 times or never before, you're going to want to bubble, bubble, toil and trouble up some witches’ brew for yourself and a group of friends because you’re about to get as lit as a jack-o-lantern playing this epic Hocus Pocus movie drinking game.

If you’ve never played a drinking game while watching a movie, it’s fairly simple. You take one sip, two sips, or a shot of your drink as decreed by the rules, when a certain thing happens in the movie. For example, you'll take a sip every time Sarah Sanderson (played iconically by Sarah Jessica Parker looking like Carrie Bradshaw's hot witchy cousin) says something flirty. Good thing you're not asked with taking a shot for that rule– otherwise you might not remember watching the movie. *Witches cackle* 

This particular set of rules were created by home bar idea and accessories site,, and seem to be the most popular with Hocus Pocus drinking game players on Twitter. 

Now without further ado, here are the rules. It would be wise to follow them closely so your game doesn't run "Amuck! amuck! amuck!"
