Lights dimmed. Ripples of excited hush crackled through the audience like electricity.

A frazzle-red haired latter day Fanny Brice boogied on stage; peered through “Los Angeles Glaze” and invited the crowd to take “a trek into tastelessness with her.”

The Divine Miss M – Bette Midler – had arrived. The audience with cultish devotion and some with just plain curiosity, was out in full force to make her opening night at the Universal Amphitheater Monday an exercise in excitement. Read More

Incensed over their persistent negative portrayal, a group of seven self-proclaimed witches on Monday denounced “Hocus Pocus ” as another “silly witch movie” that feeds into stereotypes without offering any redeeming images.

“Witches do not murder people,” said Ruth Rhiannon, a Covenant of the Goddess minister and co-founder of Circle of Aradia in Los Angeles. Read More

Madison Wisconsin State Journal
Don’t waste your money

If someone told you about a movie whose plot is to kill all the children in a small town and featured a public hanging, a backfrom-the-dead zombie who loses several body parts, and a cat who gets squashed by a truck and close to a dozen jokes about a teen-ager’s status as a virgin, you might think it was the latest R-rated Stephen King adaptation.

But guess what? All of the above ingredients are on display in “Hocus Pocus” — the newest “family comedy” from Walt Disney. Read More

A Note From The Desk of Divine Grace: A Recap Of Hulaween And Meeting Bette Midler

“A Note From The Desk of Divine Grace”

Divine Grace as "Winifred"

Divine Grace as “Winifred”

Hello, Dolls!

I have been asked by so many to recount the goings-on of this last Halloween, that I thought, “Why the Hell am I being so tight-lipped about this?” and share it with you all. I know that I tend to be long-winded on a good day, and write a Magna Carta on a bad one, so please be patient as this shall surely be a little of column A. and a little of column B. (Divine Mister D… please edit however you see fit!)

I was booked for an Off-Broadway show on Friday, October 30th back in August. I thought, “GREAT! I now have justification to fly up to NYC for Halloween (the greatest city on the planet in which to celebrate “Gay Christmas”) so I’ll do up some “Hocus Pocus” drag properly like I’ve never attempted that INCREDIBLY DETAILED AND DIFFICULT COSTUME before, and lipsync “I Put a Spell on You” as only someone who has studied Miss Midler as long as I have could.

The Halloween season is finally upon us! It’s the magical season of candy corn binges, gross-out scares, and girls dressed like slutty animals. Sandwiched somewhere between the late-night slasher flicks and the junk food benders, most of us try to dust off at least one of the spooky classics and give in to a bit of childhood nostalgia. This year marks the 20th Anniversary of one of the greatest Halloween movies ever, so we’ll do one better. Gas up your broom, find a virgin to light the black flame candle, and scare up some fun on this Bewitching Hocus Pocus Filming Locationsroad trip. Read More

Hocus Pocus continues to be one of the best Halloween movies of all time

It’s that time of year again! Halloween is a few days away and the seasonal-themed movies are coming at us from all directions.

Due to a recent drought in excellent Halloween-themed films, it’s a challenge for a film lover to choose which one to devote our undivided attention to in honor of Halloween. Sometimes even the healthiest dose of Michael Myers and the creepiest theme-music in film history doesn’t quite satisfy all the needs of the viewer in search of that classic which never goes out of style.
