Blumhouse and Sony’s The Craft: The Legacy will bypass a traditional theatrical release and be made available on premium VOD in North America just in time for Halloween, the two companies announced Monday.
The film will be available for a 48-hour rental for $19.99, and to buy for $24.99, beginning at midnight on Oct. 28. An international theatrical release is anticipated in several territories.
Directed by Zoe Lister-Jones, The Craft: The Legacy is a continuation of the 1996 cult hit The Craft and is the latest Hollywood film to go straight to PVOD amid the ongoing challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. A theatrical release date had never been set.
The new film stars Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna, Nicholas Galitzine, with Michelle Monaghan and David Duchovny.
“I’m thrilled to be able to share The Craft: Legacy with audiences all over the world this Halloween,” Lister-Jones said in a statement. “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.”
Added Blum, “Zoe Lister-Jones has put a bewitching twist on continuing The Craft franchise, and October is the perfect season for it.”
The 1996 cult classic starred Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True as four Los Angeles high schoolers who spend their free time as amateur witches, a pastime that has disastrous consequences.
