A Texas mother has warned American families that watching Hocus Pocus 2 could result in evil spells being cast in their homes - and potentially even open the gates of hell?
Jamie Gooch, 33, of Troy, has urged parents to not let their children watch the PG-rated movie Hocus Pocus 2, which premiered on Disney+ September 30 to huge anticipation, with original stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy all returning.
Jamie Gooch, 33, has railed against Hocus Pocus 2, claiming that watching the movie could open the gates of hell and send demons into unsuspecting Americans' homes .
The Texan went on to say that the 'truth' about witches and warlocks in the 'satanic church' is that they 'abuse and sacrifice children in their "spiritual rituals."' .
Gooch believes that simply watching a film about witches and spells could implicate viewers in their evil doing, even when it is fictional. .
'So before you hit play on the night of the premier of this movie, please ask yourself if not only your mind, but your children's minds, are strong enough to ward off the hypnotization and bewitching trance that will be coming through your screen to aid the desensitization of the coming evil in this world,' she wrote. .
