Critics loved The Craft, one of the most popular Hollywood horror movies. That film was a fresh reimagining of horror cliches, including teens dabbling in witchcraft. The Hollywood horror film brought out a lot of angst that the youth growing up in the nineties experienced. Also, the film was a surprise hit. Modern audiences wonder why the film never got a sequel. So, its good to know that Blumhouse will be remaking the 90s classic. There’s some good names attached to the project, exciting me at the prospect of watching the remake of another cult favorite.
Zoe Lister-Jones is writing and directing The Craft remake for Blumhouse. Lister has earlier directed the indie film, Bandaid. That film was about a couple who try to save their marriage by trying to turn their arguments into songs and musical pieces.Cailee Spaeny (Pacific Rim: Uprising), Gideon Adlon (“The Society”), Lovie Simone (Selah & the Spades) and Zoey Luna (15: A Quinceañera Story) set to star as the main characters. The original cast included Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and others.
With Blumhouse taking over the reigns, horror fans can wait for a much darker and much serious tone for The Craft. The film was a bit controversial because of where the script was set. Let’s wait for the fireworks this time around.

This just proves that the classic tropes from the eighties and nineties Hollywood horror movies are still very much welcome for horror audience. Even today, the criticproof franchise Halloween is ready with not one but two final films, Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends. Then again, with Jennifer Tilly putting up an Instapic about Tiffany, there’s enough proof that even Child’s Play is alive and kicking. The last Child’s Play film saw a 2017 release.
