The Sanderson Sisters

The Sanderson Sisters
“It’s all just a bunch of Hocus Pocus!”

On October 31, 1693, Thackery Binx, a teenage farmer living in Salem, Massachusetts, discovers his little sister Emily has been spirited away by the three Sanderson sisters, Winifred, Mary and Sarah, who intend to regain their youth by absorbing the life force of children through their witchcraft. Sneaking in the witches’ cottage, Binx’s attempt to save Emily fails when the sisters transform him into an immortal black cat and absorb Emily’s life force, regaining their youth. An angry mob led by Binx’s parents capture the sisters and prepare to hang them, but Winifred’s spell book casts a spell which will resurrect the sisters on All Hallows' Eve when a virgin lights their black-flamed candle. After the sisters die, Binx guards their cottage for the next three hundred years to prevent their return...

The Sanderson Sisters
  • Winifred "Winnie" Sanderson (portrayed by Bette Midler) was the buck-toothed leader of the Sanderson sisters. She is the eldest and is highly sensitive to people calling her "ugly". She's also the meanest and wickedest of the three. She's generally the most powerful and most intelligent of the three sisters. She has a great knowledge of dark rituals, curses, and spells. Her robes are green and she rides a corn broom when her broom is stolen.
  • Mary Sanderson (portrayed by Kathy Najimy) was the middle witch sister. Often complimenting and comforting Winnie, she likes to eat children. Her powers are smelling children and keeping track of them. She tends to act like a dog. She is the most observant of the three. Her robe color is red and she rides a vacuum cleaner when her broom is stolen.
  • Sarah Sanderson (portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker) was the youngest witch sister; she also is the dumb blonde archetype. Her powers are hypnosis (by singing a siren song), luring children to feed upon their life force. She also likes to play torturous games with people. Her somewhat revealing robes are purple and she rides a mop when her broom is stolen.
