Hocus Pocus

Continuity mistake: When Max and Allison rescue Dani from the witches' house, they turn on the car lights to trick the witches into thinking it is daylight. After they get in the car and drive off, the same light that was supposed to have come from the headlight is still shining after they have left.

Continuity mistake: There is a scene when Max and his girlfriend are awakening from their slumber to a room filled with early morning sunlight, but when they open Winifred's magic book, and the beam of light shoots from the rooftop, it is clearly still before dawn.

Continuity mistake: When the witches take Dani back to the museum, the rope they use to tie her up with changes from shot to shot. First it's up around her neck, then it's around her chest.

Continuity mistake: When Winifred turns to stone in the graveyard, her fingernails rip shreds of cloth off of Max's sweatshirt (you can see them when he falls). Exactly one minute later, when he is lying down next to Dani and talking to her, it is clear that his sweatshirt is merely ripped, not shredded.

Continuity mistake: When the parents are at the party, Dani & Max's mother puts her hands up while she is dancing and you can see her wedding ring. But when the camera cuts to Dani and then back to her again, the ring is gone.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, after the witches suck the life out of Emily, Winifred looks in a mirror and says, "Well . . . younger," and her green jacket, with a hood, is on her. In the next shot, when she says, "But, it's a start," she is not wearing her jacket at all.

Continuity mistake: In the scene just after Max summoned the "burning rain of death," when they're in the graveyard, Max's hair and jacket are completely dry after he was soaking wet only five minutes prior.

Continuity mistake: In the last scene in the graveyard, when Max is glowing and hanging off of Winifred's broomstick, his hands constantly go from a far to short distance away from the end of the broom between shots.

Continuity mistake: When the Sanderson sisters get on the bus, the headlights on the bus are on because it is dark out. They are visibly on at that point and as well as when the bus runs over Binx but, when the sisters get off of the bus, the lights are not on (it is still dark out and it is only a few minutes later). If the bus was merely letting them off (which it was, it drove away a few seconds later), why were the lights turned off?

Continuity mistake: When the Sanderson sisters suck the life out of Emily Binx, when Winifred says her line, her hood is on, but when they dance in a circle it comes off by itself.

Continuity mistake: In the grave yard, Binx is sitting on the book so Winnifred can't get it. A second later after their exchange, the cat is suddenly missing.

Mistakes

After the Sanderson sisters are done sucking the life out of Emily Binx, they do a little dance thing after they become younger. When either Winifred or Mary swings past her, Emily's leg moves even though she's supposed to be dead.

Trivia

The husband that The Sanderson Sisters mistake for their master (the devil) and his wife are actually brother and sister in real life. Gary and Penny Marshall are also both Hollywood directors, and both primarily direct comedies.
