Hocus Pocus

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.

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.

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.

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?

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: 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.

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.
