* AllThereInTheManual: The screenplay has some enlightening dialog that sheds a bit of light of certain things:
** Winnie's spellbook belongs to (or once belonged) to Satan, and it is valued to the sisters because the information within it can change to be whatever they want whenever they want, making it the ultimate endless evil weapon of ever changing spells.
** If a witch touches salt, it burns her skin. This is why a circle of salt protects against their magic.
** While the sisters look human, their bodies are essentially their souls being contained in a body made of candle wax.
** If the witches consume enough children, they'll be immortal.
** Thackery is not exactly "immortal". While Winnie taunts him that he will live forever, he actually has only 9 million lives and will die when he uses them up. At one point, he says that he has used up 321 of them but there "are only so many ways to go."
