Practical Magic (1998)

Watch Teen Witch on Max.

Stardust (2007)

Paramount Pictures

Tristan goes in search of a fallen star for the woman he loves, only to find out that the star is actually a woman being hunted by a trio of witches.

This is the fantasy romance that bridges the gap between fantasy-lovers and those who just want to fall in love. Watch Stardust on Paramount+.

Beautiful Creatures (2013)

Warner Bros. Pictures

Lena comes from a long line of witches and her family is more than a little bit overbearing. When they learn she’s fallen in love with a regular boy, they’ll have nothing to do with it.

Hocus Pocus (1993)

Buena Vista Pictures

Witches aren’t always the good guys.
