Plot hole: The spell Magicae Maxima works, but it shouldn't have worked at all because there was one ingredient missing, the petrified spider.

Visible crew/equipment: During the flashmob, there are people walking toward the camera while dancing on the street. The shadow of the steadycam filming the scene is left of screen.

Factual error: In one scene, Winifred asks Gilbert who Trask is and Gilbert replies that Trask is the "mayor", to which Winifred just acknowledges. However, the office of mayor was not created in Massachusetts until 1823, which is 130 years after they were hanged, so given the witch's lack of knowledge of the modern day, she would have likely not known what Gilbert meant.

Visible crew/equipment: During the competition at the carnival, the original sisters lose, and the winners are celebrating. Bette Midler comes forward to interrupt their celebration. The shadow of the camera appears on her lower body.

Billy Butcherson: Stop! I'm a good zombie.

Trivia: Before this sequel was confirmed, a made-for-TV remake of the original was almost produced for cable channel Freeform as announced in 2017. Star Bette Midler hated the idea of a remake, and openly stated her disapproval. Eventually, about a year later, talk of a proper sequel started up again and the made-for-TV remake was quiet cancelled.
