‘The Craft’ Sequel Drops Trailer, Gets Release Date

A cult horror favorite from the ’90s is finally getting a sequel–and it will hit VOD platforms just in time for Halloween.

The Craft: Legacy–a continuation of the coming-of-age story of a coven of teenage witches–will be available for purchase Oct. 28, as reported by Variety. The film originally was slated for a theatrical release, but, you know, this is 2020.

The sequel–from Blumhouse Productions and Red Wagon Entertainment for Columbia Pictures–is teased by a trailer on this page, a video that reveals new witches and an old demon.

Written and directed by Zoe Lister-Jones and produced by Jason Blum, The Craft: Legacy appears to pick up where the original film left off. Cailee Spaeny stars as Hannah, a teen who needs to move and change schools when her mom (Michelle Monaghan) remarries. In the process, Hannah gets three new brothers and a new dad (David Duchovny).

And, as one might expect, Hannah’s presence at her new school awakens a teenage coven (Lovie Simone, Gideon Adlon and Zoey Luna) when the three girls realize they have found a kindred spirit.

The original 1996 The Craft–directed by Andrew Fleming and written by Fleming and Peter Filardi–told the story of another coven of teenage witches at a Los Angeles parochial school who are discovering their powers. The cast included Neve Campbell, Fairuza Balk, Rachel True and Robin Tunney.

The sleeper hit was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Horror Film and Best Supporting Actress (Balk). The Craft also did very well at the box office, grossing $55.6 million worldwide on a budget of $15 million.
