This year marks the 25th anniversary of “Hocus Pocus” and Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” two of the most beloved Halloween movies of all time. To celebrate, Freeform hosted a special themed Halloween House in Los Angeles, California, from October 4 – 9.
Tickets for the free event disappeared quickly, but thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we can still get a peek inside the enchanting Halloween experience. To create the not-so-scary house, Freeform transformed the historic Lombardi House with “Hocus Pocus” and “Nightmare Before Christmas” decor. During the event, stars from ABC and Freeform television shows were in attendance to run amuck, amuck, amuck!
The limited-time immersive Halloween House featured the Sanderson Sisters’ cottage, Oogie Boogie’s lair, Dr. Finkelstein’s lab, a graveyard with the final resting places of Jack Skellington and Sally, and more. Below, scroll through for a look at Freeform’s spooky Halloween event.
Lombardi House, the historic Hollywood home where the event took place, also shared a few snapshots on their Instagram account.
Freeform is currently in the midst of their 31 Nights of Halloween programming, and both “Hocus Pocus” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas” air several times throughout the month. On Wednesday, October 31, the channel puts a spell on you with a “Hocus Pocus” marathon starting at 11:30 AM. To see the full schedule, visit the Freeform website.
While Freeform’s Halloween House was a special event to celebrate the 25th anniversaries of “Hocus Pocus” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” we’ve got our fingers crossed that this becomes a yearly tradition.
