Other mistake: When Max and Dani go into Allison's house, and she goes to get cider, when she comes back she says "by the way Dani, I love your costume." But Max doesn't introduce her other than "my sister" so how did Allison know her name?

Suggested correction: As Allison is coming down the stairs she says that she didn't think Max was into Halloween. Max responds "I'm not, I'm just taking my little sister Dani around."

Other mistake: 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.

Factual error: When the witches follow Mary into the alley after singing I Put A Spell On You, Mary Sanderson said she smelled Scrod, a bottom feeder that would be good with margarine. 300 years prior to that, butter would be the topping of choice as margarine hadn't been invented until the 1800s, when the sisters were dead.

Suggested correction: She doesn't say margarine. She says marjoram, which is a herb.

The official subtitles on a retail copy of the movie says "margarine."

The mistake is correct. She does say margarine, not marjoram. She even follows this up with "Or oil. Olive oil works", so she's talking about cooking with some sort of fat, not an herb.

Suggested correction: Mary watched 10-30 minutes of television commercials at "The Master's" house earlier in the evening, so she could have learned about it from TV.

Plot hole: After Max and Allison rescue Dani from the witches, Max is driving his parents' car. Winifred flies up along side of them and asks Max to show her his driver's permit. How would she know about driving permits, since she's been dead for 300 years?

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.

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.
