This is one pop-up store that has the spirit.
Spirit Halloween: The Movie–a live-action feature based on the Halloween-themed pop-up store–will release this October (perfect timing), and a teaser has dropped to get fans in the holiday mood. Check out the clip on this page.
The family-oriented spooky movie–directed by David Poag from a screenplay by Billie Bates–follows such Spirit Halloween store favorites as Buzzsaw, Nightcrawler and Mr. Dark as they’re trapped inside the store as Halloween decorations come to life.
Starring Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future franchise) and Rachael Leigh Cook (The Baby-Sitters Club), the film deals with a new Spirit Halloween store that appears in a deserted strip mall, and “three middle-school friends who think they’ve outgrown trick-or-treating dare each other to spend the night locked inside the store on Halloween night,” according to the synopsis.
But the friends soon learn that the store “is haunted by an angry evil spirit (Lloyd), who has possessed the creep animatronic characters. The friends embark on a spooky adventure in order to survive the night and avoid becoming possessed themselves.”
The rest of the cast includes Donavan Colan (Zoe), Dylan Frankel (Raven’s Home), Jaiden Smith (Blue Bloods) and Marissa Reyes (Raven’s Home).
