I can see it.
Omri Katz, who played Max Dennison in the original ‘Hocus Pocus’ was high when filming the classic movie.
Katz was 16 years old in 1993 when he lit the black flame, summoning the Sanderson Sisters back to Salem.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said that was the age he started using cannabis.
” Let’s just say some of those scenes; I was having a good old time. I’ll tell you what I do remember: I was mis-performing and not hitting my keys or marks, and Director Kenny Ortega comes up to me and practically grabs me by the shirt, and he was like, ‘Are you high?’ and I was like, ‘No,’ and of course I was. We got it done, but that was a wake-up call, like, ‘Omri, you’ve got to be a little more professional and make sure you hit your cues!'”
Although he can’t remember every scene where he was under the influence, he knows for sure he was high in this scene where Winifred Sanderson, played by Bette Midler, zaps him.
And FYI, Katz retired from Hollywood a few years later and now runs an online cannabis store called ‘The Mary Danksters.’
