The Craft Is Getting a Sequel, and the Trailer Looks So Spooky
One of the most iconic Halloween movies of all time is 1996’s The Craft, starring Fairuza Balk, Robin Tunney, Neve Campbell, and Rachel True as four high school witches who use the occult to strengthen their friendship and seek revenge on bullies and boys. It’s the perfect mix of campy and spooky, filled to the brim with classic lines that are now pop culture canon. (Please see “We are the weirdos, mister.”)
No one needs a reboot of The Craft because the original is so good, but the idea of one is certainly intriguing. What would this coven look like in 2020? And how would they use their powers?
Well, we’re about to find out. Columbia Pictures and Blumhouse are releasing a film remake of The Craft, aptly titled The Craft: Legacy, on October 28 via PVOD. Viewers will be able to buy a 48-hour rental for $19.99 or straight-up purchase the movie for $24.99. If that seems steep to you, think about what you normally pay for one ticket at a movie theater. (At least this way you can split the cost with friends.)
The Craft: Legacy features four new teen witch characters (played by Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, and Zoey Lunaand) and a fresh plot, but the core is similar: A group of girls form a coven, and witchy hijinks ensue. But what happens when one of them gets a little too power hungry?
“I’m thrilled to be able to share The Craft: Legacy with audiences all over the world this Halloween,” writer-director Zoe Lister-Jones says of the film in a press release. “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.”

A theatrical run is expected to happen with details coming in due course. But for now, mark your calendars for October 28. The weirdos are coming back.
