Plot:

When a sceptical virgin lights a cursed three hundred year-old candle, he gets more than he bargained for when The Sanderson Sisters return from the grave.

New to the town of Salem and with only his sister Dani and history-buff Allison by his side, Max Dennison is forced to accept that magic is real and his life is in danger.

As the Sanderson sisters - Winnie, Sarah and Mary - come to terms with the 21st Century and cavort with a devilish Halloween enthusiast, our heroes attempt to track down their partying parents with the help of a talking cat, Binx.

Thackery Binx lost his own sister when the witches used her life to ensure their eternal youth (and turned him into a cat), and he's spent the years since guarding the only means to their resurrection: the candle. Poorly, as it so happens.

When Winnie accumulates all she needs to re-cast the spell and ensure her siblings' survival beyond the following midnight, Max and co. must overcome a cantankerous corpse, break the spell and save the day before it is too late.
