Hocus Pocus

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?

Chosen 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.

Question: Throughout the film, everyone says that Binx was trying to prevent the candle from being lit, so why at the end does he thank Max for lighting it, and explain to Emily that he had to wait for the candle to be lit?

Chosen answer: Binx had accepted his fate of being a cat forever so instead, he decided to stop the candle from being lit. It was only near the end of the film that he saw the death of the witches broke his curse.

Question: If Binx could talk the moment he became a cat, why didn't he talk to his dad?

Chosen answer: Back in the 1600s in Salem, cats were considered to be servants of witches and were killed if caught. If Binx tried to talk to his dad, his dad would most likely believe that the cat was possessed by a demon and would have definitely killed him, not knowing that he had killed his own son.

Answer: Notice that Max, Dani and Allison can only understand Binx after Max lights the black flame candle. Max is fulfilling a centuries-old prophecy and therefore is becoming part of the same magic that was used to curse Binx. Binx does try to talk to his father right after the Sanderson sisters are hung, but it only comes out as meows.

Answer: It's never really explained and most likely a missing plot hole. Binx might have felt guilty for nor being able to rescue his sister.

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.
