'The Craft' sequel reveals new coven of teen witches, will debut on-demand in October


Gather your coven this Halloween because it’s time to meet a new set of supernatural outcasts.

The 1996 film “The Craft” is getting a sequel that will bypass its previously anticipated theater release and head straight to video on-demand.

With a premiere date set for October 28th, it’ll make the perfect binge on Halloween night, reported Variety.

The new version stars Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna and Cailee Spaeny as the young witches.

“The Craft: Legacy” seemingly takes place where the 1996 film left off. Spaeny’s character, Hannah, moves to a new town after her mom (played by Michelle Monaghan) remarries. Her presence at the new school awakens the local teenage coven, who realize they found their fourth.

Hannah’s powers intensify rapidly as the foursome “unleash a power that at first seems to solve problems in their lives but slowly consumes them with unforeseen costs.”

In the trailer, Hannah finds a photo of the original big bad Nancy Downs (played by Fairuza Balk). Did the binding spell wear off? Does this mean she’ll make an appearance in the film?

“X-Files” star David Duchovny will also appear as Hannah’s step-father.

The original film starred Balk, Neve Campbell, Robin Tunney, and Rachel True as a group of high school outcasts who turn to witchcraft and abuse their powers.

The film hails from Blumhouse, the production company known for producing low-budget horror films such as “Paranormal Activity” and “The Purge.”

In the spirit of spooky season, the company has four other horror flicks come to Amazon Prime Video next month including “Black Box,” “The Lie,” “Evil Eye,” and “Nocture.”
