Hocus Pocus

Other mistake: When Mary goes to save Winifred, there is no cord coming from the Hoover. However, next scene shows Dani, Allison and Billy grab a medium sized cord. Next scene then shows the cord much much much bigger.

Other mistake: In the first graveyard scene, when Allison swats a tree branch at Sarah, Sarah yells, "Ouch," and flies away but the branch never touched her.

Other mistake: At Allison's party after she gets Max and herself a drink, one shot shows her going to take a drink but in the next shot from behind she takes up the cup again and drinks.

Other mistake: Winnie could not have known that Max said, "It's just a bunch of hocus pocus," considering the three of them were still dead at that time. (They couldn't have been ghosts, because she didn't know who lit the black-flame candle.)

Other mistake: When Sara lures Emily to the Sanderson house with her song, Emily is laughing and running even as she enters the house. Later in the movie when Sara lures the town's children to the Sanderson house with her song, they were all in a hypnotic sleepwalking state.

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

Question: If the witches were being hung outside the house when Winifred's book showed her how to cast the life spell, where did the black flame candle and its instructions come from?

Answer: They were set up, beforehand, just in case. Winnifred knew about the spell, but she didn't memorize the incantation. So she needed the book to see how to cast it.
