Hocus Pocus

Factual error: The Sanderson House had been turned into a museum complete with a gift counter. The museum had been closed for years (note the dust and spider webs). The fluid in the lighter max gets would have evaporated after a few months as Zippos are not airtight like a plastic disposable lighter would be.

Factual error: The film is set on Halloween (31st October) 1993. At the start of the film, Max is shown at school on Halloween. However, Halloween 1993 was actually a Sunday.

David Mercier

Factual error: Just after the towns-people have hung the three witches, you can see the executioner walking away. The outfit he is wearing is leather and has some sort of metal spikes on it. This outfit is too modern for that particular time.

Factual error: Binx is shown pouring hot liquid from a cauldron that is over a flame, the iron would be too hot for him to touch without getting burned.

Factual error: Zippo lighters are sold dry, no fluid when new.
