This fall, Cincinnati will get to enjoy the cult-classic Halloween movie Hocus Pocus in an entirely new way: Something Wicked This Way Kills is a murder-mystery dinner party that will take place at two different locations. 

Themed after the Hocus Pocus film, the murder mystery invites guests to enjoy a two-hour show, accompanied by a three-course meal (with salad, dinner and dessert). Each table will be paired up as teams and participants will be able to discuss who they believe is the murderer over their dessert course. The winning team will receive a prize. 

"The Sanderson Sisters have been summoned once again by the black flame candle, but this time they are trying to solve the murder of their spinster cousin. To solve the murder, the girls must crash a modern Halloween party where hilarity ensues," the website description reads.

The show includes a cast of local actresses and comedians including Eileen Earnest, Alison Rampa, Chelsea Overman, Shellina Borgman, Cat Davis and Kelly Collette.

Tickets to the event cost $35 and there are two different opportunities to join in the fun: Oct. 30 at Washington Platform Saloon and Nov. 1 at Wooden Cask Brewing.

Don't forget to dress in your Halloween best — there will be a prize for the best costume.
