Are you ready for some magic and menace? The Craft remake is coming out in time for Halloween thanks to Amazon Prime. The news was announced on Friday at Decider. Curiously, Amazon buried this big reveal in a pretty boilerplate press release for the new titles coming to its streaming platform in October.
The Craft (2020), a remake of the 1996 film of the same name, follows a group of high school students that form a coven of witches. Available to buy or rent October 27.
That’s a surprisingly low-key way to unveil the debut of a remake of a ’90s classic, especially as so little is known about this soon-to-hit flick.
Here’s all we know about 2020’s The Craft:
The logline is familiar: “A group of high school students forms a coven of witches.”
It’s been made by Blumhouse Productions, the studio that’s brought us remakes like The Invisible Man and Black Christmas, as well as boldly original horror like Get Out, Happy Death Day and Sweetheart.
It’s written and directed by Zoe Lister-Jones, an actress turned filmmaker whose previous helming credit is Band Aid, a 2017 dramedy in which she also co-starred with Happy Endings’ Adam Pally.
That’s it. That’s all we know.
However, we’d wager a trailer will be dropping very soon, probably tied to Amazon and Blumhouse’s collaboration: Welcome To The Blumhouse. This virtual event will unveil four new horror offerings in the first half of October. So, perhaps the first look at the new Craft will come ahead of the debuts of Black Box and The Lie, the first two to hit?
In the meantime, fans of the original can shop the witchy look over at Hot Topic, where the ’90s are back with a special The Craft collection.
