Hocus Pocus 2 honest review By Central Texas Mom That Is Terrifying

In the first Hocus Pocus movie, which came out in 1993 and became a cult favorite, three witch sisters woke up after sleeping for 300 years when a black flame candle was lit. In the second Hocus Pocus movie, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy come back as the Sanderson sisters. The three witches catch children and kill them to make themselves young again. The movie released on 30th September 2022.

demons, witchcraft, devil worship, and "satanic panic" are on the rise, thanks largely to conspiracy theory groups.

Women who wanted more rights for themselves or went against the rules of their time were called witches by the church because they didn't act like everyone else.

One such mom who has taken the whole movie way too seriously is Jamie Gooch who is claiming that the movie will “unleash hell on your kids.”

"I'll try to be brief. Please hear me when I tell you the truth: Witches and Warlocks in the Satanic Church abuse and kill children in their "spiritual rituals" to get more power in the underworld," Gooch wrote in a post that has recently been made private.

Goosh continued, "So before you press play on the night of the movie's premiere, please ask yourself if your mind and the minds of your children are strong enough to resist the hypnosis and bewitching trance that will be coming through the screen to help people become less sensitive to the evil that is coming to this world. Don't give in to the evil plans of hell."

She started by detailing the movie's plot by saying that the whole movie is about witches taking children to kill them for their blood.

The mom also said that even though everyone thinks it's fake and harmless the characters in the movie could be doing any kind of spell they want. She added: "Anything could be coming into your home through that TV screen."

In the interview, Gooch said that she was warning parents about movies and other forms of entertainment that show witches and witchcraft because of her faith and her belief that there is a "spiritual war being fought against homes in America."

Gooch said that her family hasn't celebrated Halloween in "four or five years," but she thinks the dangers aren't limited to October 31. Even though the family has gotten bad press, Gooch said in the interview that she has also gotten good comments that let her know she is not alone.

Wendy Walters, 46, is from Texas. She agrees with Gooch that the movie and other entertainments like it are dangerous.

"My friend group has talked a lot about how witchcraft and even the idea of human sacrifice or a blood sacrifice that's needed have been billed as "entertainment" or "fun," Walters told TODAY in an interview. "Something that seems like fun at first can quickly lead to problems for your family that you didn't plan for."

Walters says that she hasn't seen "Hocus Pocus 2" and has no plans to do so. She did see the first one from 1993. As kids, her sons didn't.

She added that she did not want to open her doors and families' lives to something that celebrates witchcraft and human sacrifice, even if it's done with jokes and fun and Disney glitter. 

She said that she was a little scared when she hit the post because she didn't know how people would react. "The post was for people who haven't made the decisions they need to make for their family because they aren't sure what to do." "It was great because a lot of people agreed with me and already knew. There were some who didn't get it, but that was okay. Tell me what you think, I want to know where you're coming from, but it doesn't change my beliefs or what I decide to do with my family."

"I was talking about the movie with my friends and family, and it just broke my heart because some people do things and don't even know they're doing them," said Gooch. "Most of the mistakes I've made were because I didn't know any better." "It's fine if you don't agree with me. You should go follow your own heart and convictions. But as Christians, we are held to a higher standard."

Even though Gooch's opinion might not be the most popular, she says that if putting it out there changes the mind of just one person, it was worth it.

Gooch said, "I hope I make a difference, but even if it's just in the life of one person, that's all that matters." "It doesn't have to change Hollywood. I don't have to make a big difference. I'd be happy and satisfied with a small one."

Gooch says that her goal is to get people to be proactive instead of reactive by having them rethink some of the decisions they have made as a family.
