Blumhouse has released the first trailer for their upcoming horror film The Craft: Legacy, which is inspired by the 1996 film The Craft. The movie comes from writer and director Zoe Lister-Jones (Life in Pieces, Band-Aid), and it’s a witch movie for a new generation.
The movie is actually a continuation of the first film, The Craft, and it follows an eclectic foursome of aspiring teenage witches who get more than they bargained for as they lean into their newfound powers. It’s teased in the trailer how this film connects to the original.
If you are a fan of the first film or just interested in a modern-day story about witchcraft, maybe you’ll find this interesting. It’s not really my thing, but I’m sure that there’s an audience out there that will appreciate it.
The director said in a statement:
“I’m thrilled to be able to share The Craft: Legacy with audiences all over the world this Halloween. It’s been a true privilege to take on such an iconic title. I can’t wait for the world to meet the incredible young women who make up our new coven.”
Producer Jason Blum added:
“Zoe Lister-Jones has put a bewitching twist on continuing The Craft franchise, and October is the perfect season for it. We’re thrilled that our partners at Sony Pictures are looking at the landscape opportunistically this Halloween, for audiences to watch at home in the U.S.”
The movie stars Cailee Spaeny (Bad Times at the El Royale, On the Basis of Sex), Gideon Adlon (The Society, Blockers, The Mustang), Lovie Simone (Selah & the Spades, Greenleaf), Zoey Luna (Pose, Boundless), and Nicholas Galitzine (Cinderella), with Michelle Monaghan and David Duchovny.
The Craft: Legacy will be available to watch on PVOD this Halloween on October 28th with leading digital retailers for a 48-hour rental period at a suggested retail price of $19.99, and for premium digital purchase at a suggested retail price of $24.99.
