Who Lit The Black Flame Candle?

It’s official, according to Deadline, Disney is remaking the Halloween classic, Hocus Pocus.

We don’t know how we feel about this.

Apparently, 2017 is the year of remakes and reboots. Almost every show we think fondly of from the past has come back to haunt us.

Will our beloved sister witches remain the same? I don’t know many people who could replace Sarah Jessica Parker, Better Middler and Kathy Najimy. As of right now, none of the original cast will be involved in this remake. Personally, I can’t wrap my head around a new set of Sanderson sisters.

Will you hop on the remake train and tune in to the new Hocus Pocus?

Join in on the conversation on our Toluna Team topic!

 

Trick or Treat Challenge

The tradition of Trick or Treating started many years ago when children would go door to door performing jokes, stories, songs, anything…for fruit or money. We want to bring that tradition back. For the month of October, perform your tricks to get some treats.

Upload a photo to the site of your “trick” and win up to 10,000 points!

  • Promote your content! Get your friends on Toluna to vote for you by October 31st!

Community Spotlight: Haunted Houses and Horror Movies

Dear Members,

Welcome to our community spotlight feature*.  Since today is Halloween, we decided to pick one last spooky topic. This week we chose singlemoon9456’s topic asking if you can handle haunted houses, hayrides and scary movies.

 comm spot

Here are some of the answers from our members:

Megzwilletts: Depends if the movies have children in them being haunted. Most other scarey things dont get to me.

Eggnog76: yup. I know how most of the special effects are done so it no longer scares me.

Meelo81: not alone but fine with a group
