Favorite Fictional Characters --- The Sanderson Sisters


Now normally three evil witches bent on eating the souls of children in order to stay alive and young would not be very likable or on my list of Favorite Fictional Characters.

However, Winifred, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson are not your typical evil witches. After being hung for their crimes in 1693 they are brought back to life, in 1993, after a virgin lights a black flame candle on Halloween night. At first they are a little confused by the sights and sounds of a modern Halloween but they come to realize that they are in a prime spot for taking back their lives.

Now because the sisters are played by Bette Midler, Kathy Njimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker the sisters are hilarious, likable and just fun to watch. Whether it's singing "I Put a Spell on You" and actually putting a spell over a Halloween party, kicking around the zombie they bring back to life, or how they interact with each other; they are hilarious and a lot of fun to watch. So much so that when they are defeated in the end, you almost feel sorry for them.

I absolutely LOVE this movie. This is another one we look for at Halloween to watch. These three women are fabulous together in this movie. I loved the whole movie.

Now I am singing the song. I put a spell on you... Now I will be singing it all night.

I really liked this movie. The Sandersons were a riot. Especially Sarah Jessica Parker. She was hilarious with her (as Jaime said) "Amuck, Amuck, Amuck!" I need to get this one for my boys too!

I can remember watching this film over and over again after taping it - onto a VHS tape - off tv. So fun.
