Bette Midler just ruined every Hocus Pocus fan's day.

After years of speculation that Midler and her co-stars would reunite for a sequel to the 1993 classic Halloween film Hocus Pocus, the songstress finally put those rumors to rest.

The answer is no—an unequivocal no.

Midler made the declaration during a Facebook Q&A this week, crushing the dreams of so many fans.

Maybe these fans should just calm down.

Good grief, it's terrifying Halloween costumes!

The Today Show thought it would be a good idea to ruin Peanuts characters forever by dressing up hosts as life-size, super realistic versions of the comic strip.

Here is the nightmare fuel people were unjustly subjected to.

The American people were clearly traumatized.

Shame on you, Today Show.

Citizens of Peoria, Arizona: Run, hide, take cover!

A 25-foot-tall, 350-pound orange jack-o'-lantern came unleashed today from the depths of Hell and barreled through traffic before meeting a quick death in a local park.

The giant monstrosity is owned by Big AZ Promotions. A representative from the company said strong winds must have caused straps holding the pumpkin down to break.

Right, Big AZ Promotions. If you say so.

You won't convince anyone that this enormous pumpkin wasn't filled with the spirit of 10,000 demonic creatures.

A message on Tumblr from a woman who has anorexia is still changing minds and hearts two years later.

Jessi Davin, a 26-year-old woman from Florida, wrote a post about the controversial "Anna Rexia" costume. She talked about the real effects of the disease on her body and mind.

To her, this costume isn't funny at all.

Davin's post gets re-shared thousands of times each Halloween when the "Anna Rexia" costume becomes popular again.

"I think costumes like ['Anna Rexia'] really show how much we as a society have to learn about mental illness and the way it affects the people around us," Davin told BuzzFeed News.

"People need to know that if you suffer from an eating disorder — you aren't a joke."

Here's your friendly reminder that you shouldn't wear blackface on Halloween (or ever.)

A 5th grade teacher at the Chestnut Grove Elementary School in Alabama apparently didn't get this memo. He dressed up as Kanye West, complete with "Kanye for Prez 2020" sign.

Heath Morrow's wife Shannon posted the photo on Facebook with the caption: "Haha some people thought Heath was really a black man."

She's probably not laughing now.

Although the original post has been deleted, nothing is gone forever once posted on the Internet.

Sadly, instances of blackface appear every year on Halloween. Most notably, actress Julianne Hough went in blackface as "Crazy Eyes" from Orange is The New Black in 2013.

Google wants to make sure you look super fly on Halloween night.

The company just released Frightgeist, an interactive map that plots the most popular Halloween costumes based on search terms across the country.

Check out the site and make sure your costume is original, like the delicate flower you are.

When you go to Target for one item, you'll end up leaving with a shopping cart full. That's just basic science.

But thanks to an actually delightful Halloween campaign from the store, you might just need two shopping carts on your next visit.

In a new campaign for Target's Halloween merchandise, the retailer takes viewers on an immersive, 360-degree video "choose your own adventure."

You just start at the video above, and follow the story from room to room in a haunted house.

In a world that's full of advertising, it's nice for a change of pace.

Just make sure to not block the entry way into the Dollar Spot, or some soccer moms could get violent.
