A Texas mom warned American families that watching Hocus Pocus 2 could cast evil spells in their homes — and might even open the gates of hell.
Jamie Gooch, 33, of Troy, has urged parents not to let their kids watch the PG-rated Hocus Pocus 2, which premiered at Disney+ September 30 with great anticipation, with original stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy returning. . .
“Worst case scenario is: Unleash hell on your children and in your home,” said the mother of three. KWTX.
Apparently on the verge of tears, Goch continued, “It saddens me, the thought of exposing our children to the dark.”
Goch revealed that the family hasn’t celebrated Halloween in “four or five years”. She is a conservative Christian who runs a farm with her husband. They celebrate the harvest every year – but not Halloween itself.
In a Facebook post that has since gone private, Gooch encouraged other moms to be “guardians of our homes,” saying she wanted to “sound the alarm” in the new movie to “protect” the children.
Jimmy Gooch, 33, attacks Hocus Pocus 2, claiming that watching the movie can open the gates of hell and send demons into the homes of unsuspecting Americans.
“After all, the entire movie is all about harvesting the purity of children’s souls so that witches can live… What happens when we watch these movies? What do we subject our minds to? What do we welcome into our families’ homes?” she asked in a Facebook post on September 26.
Texas went on to say that the “truth” about witches and charlatans in the “Satanic Church” is that they “abuse and sacrifice children in their ‘spiritual rites’.”
Gooch believes that just watching a movie about witches and spells can implicate viewers in their evil deeds, even when it’s fiction.
So before you hit the play button on the night of this movie’s premiere, please ask yourself if your mind, and even the minds of your children, are strong enough to fend off the hypnosis and enchanting ecstasy that will appear across your screen to help desensitize the evil to come in this world.
“Don’t fall victim to Hell’s schemes.”
She went on to say that she had “fallen into the trap once or twice” and had to endure “spiritual war” because of it.
The mother told KWTX that she had personally seen how things on TV “became unfolded in real life,” but did not go into details of her past experiences with witchcraft.
Gooch, who is photographed with her husband and young children, has not celebrated Halloween for the past five years due to fears it could bring evil spirits into her Texas home.
Hocus Pocus 2 premiered on Disney+ on September 30th, amid great expectations. It’s a sequel to the 1993 cult classic, with Sarah Jessica Parker (left) Bette Midler (centre) and Kathy Najimi (right) all reprising their roles as Sanderson’s evil sisters.
“Everyone thinks it’s fake and innocent, but they can cast any kind of spell they want, anything that can come on that TV screen into your house,” she told local media.
She encouraged others to “make all choices” and “overthink” things to make sure mothers were keeping their babies safe.
Since the publication of the now popular monologue, Gooch has received a lot of criticism, but others have defended it.
When I bowed to the Holy Spirit, I began to see things differently. Halloween isn’t an innocent day anymore, but it was a very significant day for modern witches and demonic sacrifice, mom Krista Maynard wrote on Facebook on Tuesday.
“The innocent movie I once watched isn’t innocent anymore, as I remember the entire focus of the movie was taking children’s souls. What about my children?
However, many were thrilled at mocking the two nations, claiming that they were “naive”, “stupid” and “crazy bats”.
Since the movie’s release, Hocus Pocus 2 has cast a spell on many Disney+ viewers.
The film, a sequel to the 1993 cult classic starring Bette Midler and Sarah Jessica Parker, became the first film to premiere on the broadcaster in the United States to date.
It tells the story of the three evil Sanderson sisters, witches who are murdered during the Salem Whitcraft trials, and reincarnated in a book of spells seeking revenge in modern-day Massachusetts.
According to the announcement made by Disney+ on Tuesday, the feat is “based on hours watched locally in the first three days” after its debut.
Fans gave the movie their thumbs up after its release on Friday.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimi and Bette Midler reprise their roles as Satanic Sarah, Mary and Winifred Sanderson in the scary comedy.
In the new chapter, three young women light the black candle, bringing the Sanderson sisters to modern-day Salem. Teens must figure out how to stop witches, who try to eat children as if they were candy corn, from wreaking havoc on the world.
The film has a 61 percent critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but that doesn’t stop die-hard fans from falling in love with the evil sisters again.
The original film was released in July 1993 and was a flop at the box office, but eventually attracted a loyal fan base when it was re-released in theaters during the Halloween season and that base grew even larger after the movie hit TV screens.
In an interview with CBS Sunday MorningWhen it came on TV, it was accessible to the whole family overnight, and generations have continued to show it, said Kathy Najmi, 65.
Sarah Jessica Parker, 57, agreed, “The great and satisfying thing is that the audience has become so diverse for this. People have incorporated this into their lives — families, children, babysitters, grandparents, the LGBTQ-plus community. It’s just amazing.
Bette Midler, 76, believes the message of joy will resonate with fans new and old, “and it’s so helpful…it’s more helpful than the previous one.”
