Charmed season 3 is coming to M-Net City soon! Before you get wrapped into the magic and wonder with Macy, Mel and Maggie we thought it'd fitting that we look at some of our favourite TV and movie witches of all time.


Hocus Pocus

This 1993 fantasy comedy gave us laughs and lots of horror as well. Sarah Jessica Parker, Better Milder, and Kathy Najimy took us on a fantastic broomstick ride one eerie Halloween night. The feisty sisters had us and the whole town of Salem under their spell. If you were a kid when you watched it, then you must have looked under your bed in fear of being snatched up by the Sanderson sisters. We still do!

Here's the trailer to reboot your memory:


Sabrina, the Teenage Witch

Everybody fell in love with Melissa Joan Hart as the cool, crazy, and witty Sabrina. Her high school adventures and antics were the best, her overbearing aunts were a ball and let's not forget the wise and beloved cat, Salem. As an audience, we watched how Sabrina eventually embraced her witchy ways and lived up to her calling. 

Enjoy some of the best moments of the show:


The show inspired a new and dark version with Netflix's The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. 

Here's the cast of the original Sabrina reacting to The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina:



The movie that literally gave every kid nightmares back in the '90s. There never was and never will be a wicked witch played the way Angelica Houston did! 

Here's that terrifying witchy scene that is still etched into our memories after all this time:



The movie also had a 2020 remake with Anne Hathaway taking on the role of the Grand High Witch.

The Craft

The Craft was a sensational hit for teens all over the globe with its darker and deadlier approach and soon developed a cult following. It's one supernatural horror movie that has crawled under our skins decade after decade. The movie also had a 2020 remake, called The Craft: The Legacy. 

Watch the moment the sisters made their deadly pact:



Prue, Piper, Phoebe, and Paige were the sisters of sorcery that everyone wanted to be! The original Charmed will forever hold a place in the hearts of the masses.
