I don’t even care what it’s about. Just put it in my eyeballs right now.
In an exclusive with Variety, the iconic seasonal costume and prop store with 1,425 locations across North America, has teamed with Strike Back Studios, Hideout Pictures and Particular Crowd for a feature-length family movie simply entitled, “Spirit Halloween.”
The premise so far is as follows:
“When a new Spirit Halloween store appears in a deserted strip mall, three middle-school friends who think they’ve outgrown trick-or-treating make a dare to spend the night locked inside the store Halloween night. But they soon find out that the store is haunted by an angry evil spirit who has possessed the creepy animatronic characters. The kids embark on a thrilling and spooky adventure in order to survive the night and avoid becoming possessed themselves.”
With a screenplay by Billie Bates, the movie is billing legendary actor Christopher Lloyd alongside Rachel Leigh Cook as the main stars for the film alongside Donavan Colan, Dylan Frankel, Marissa Reyes, Jaiden Smith, and Marla Gibbs with Director David Poag, making his directorial feature debut.
Filming is reported to have been completed and is eyeing an October 2022 release date.
