The supernatural teen chiller The Craft was a box office hit back in 1996, and despite mixed reviews at the time, has developed a cult following over the years. It's taken nearly 25 years for a follow-up, but The Craft: Legacy releases next month and the first trailer has been released.

The trailer suggests that the new Craft movie isn't a remake, but a sequel to the original movie. The basic story is much the same--a shy teenager named Lily starts a new school and starts up a friendship with three other girls. The group secretly practises witchcraft and use their powers to help make life at school a little easier, but it seems that Lily is very powerful, and inevitably things start to get out of control. The connection with the first movie is that film's star, Fairuza Balk, appears in a photo, revealing that this Craft takes place in the same universe. Check the trailer out below.

The Craft: Legacy stars Cailee Spaeny (Devs), Gideon Adlon (Blockers), Lovie Simone (Orange Is the New Black), Zoey Luna (Pose), Michelle Monaghan (Mission Impossible: Fallout), and David Duchovny (The X-Files). It's written and directed by Zoe Lister-Jones, who previously made the 2017 movie Band Aid, as well as starring in the sitcom Life in Pieces. It hits Video on Demand on October 28.

This isn't the only new horror movies that Blumhouse is releasing digitally next month. The company has produced a series of new films which will be released collectively as Welcome to the Blumhouse on Prime Video. The first four will drop in October.

One highly-anticipated Blumhouse movie we won't be seeing this year, however, is the next Halloween movie. Halloween Kills, the sequel to 2018's hugely successful reboot, has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will now release in October 2021.
