Hocus Pocus Magics Its Way To Number 1

Hocus Pocus Magics Its Way To Number 1

Hocus Pocus tops the Official Film Chart for the first time as it rises to Number 1 following the weekend’s Halloween festivities.

This week’s Official Film Chart takes a remarkably terrifying turn as spooky films flood the Top 20; with families and flat mates across the UK prevented from the usual parties and trick-or-treating due to lockdown measures, film fans took to their sofas for a ghostly movie night.

In total, 12 films in the Top 20 were spooky titles, varying from classic horrors including Scream and Halloween, to more family-friendly entries like Casper and SCOOB!.



Hocus Pocus flies up three to take its place at Number 1, just ahead of Tim Burton classic The Nightmare Before Christmas which also rises three to Number 2 – knocking both Onward (4) and Frozen 2 (5) down three places each from last week. Scoob! holds on at Number 3.

Ghostbusters (1984) enters the Official Film Chart for the first time this spooky season, landing at Number 6 just ahead of Casper at 7, which rockets 17 places. Thanks to a recent remake, the original 1990 film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Witches soars 20 places to Number 8, and The Invisible Man creeps up four to Number 9. IT: Chapter Two rounds things off at Number 10, floating up seven.

Other seasonal entries in the Top 20 include The House With A Clock In Its Walls (13), The Rocky Horror Picture Show (15), Beetlejuice (16), Halloween (17) and Scream (20).

Finally this week’s Official Film Chart, features a sneak peek at 1955 Ealing Studios comedy caper The Ladykillers, which is being re-released on 4k to buy from November 9.

Now, as well as OfficialCharts.com, the Official Film Chart can also be found on FindAnyFilm.com – the ultimate site for Film and TV fans to discover all the legal ways to buy the entertainment they want on disc and digital formats. Make sure to keep an eye out for all of these great titles over the next few months.
