Take a look at the trailer that’s arrived for The Craft: Legacy, Blumhouse Productions’ follow-up to the Neve Campbell-starring cult hit The Craft from 1996.
Cailee Spaeny (Bad Times at the El Royale, Pacific Rim: Uprising) stars as Hannah, a teen girl who’s experiencing a number of changes with new stepbrothers and a new school. Three girls – played by Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone and Zoey Luna – befriend her, opening her up to newfound powers that will have major consequences for them all. It’s not all that clear how it connects to the first film, but there is a quick connection for fans shown off in the trailer.
The film is both directed and written by actress-filmmaker Zoe Lister-Jones, whose acting credits include shows Life in Pieces and New Girl, as well as feature dramedy Band Aid – her feature directorial debut.
It looks like an adequate enough updating of the original – one that could potentially tap into the type of audience that have made shows like The Vampire Diaries and Teen Wolf hits over the years. The trailer actually looks a little bit like the trailer for a show – for better or worse.
The Craft: Legacy, also starring Michelle Monaghan and David Duchovny, is released On Demand in the US on October 28th and will be in Australian cinemas on November 5th.
In Blumhouse’s continuation of the cult hit The Craft, an eclectic foursome of aspiring teenage witches get more than they bargained for as they lean into their newfound powers.
Written and directed by Zoe Lister-Jones, the film stars Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna, Nicholas Galitzine, with Michelle Monaghan and David Duchovny. Blumhouse and Red Wagon Entertainment are producing the film for Columbia Pictures.
