Yes you’re probably scratching your head at the idea of a Spirit Halloween Store movie but In todays age it shouldn’t be that surprising. I think watching Spirit Halloween Store videos on YouTube and just going to Spirit has become a ritual for me. It signifies the beginning of spooky season and I like to think I’m not alone in that feeling, right? The case rests that Spirit is definitely the most popular Halloween store and a movie just made sense with the original monsters they have.
Of course the monsters are simply decoration pieces but there had to be some back story to them, and it seems that could be explored. I would definitely be curious as to how this will be adapted into a feature length movie. We will be getting a trailer by the end of the week as Spirit opens up its flagship store for the Halloween season. The first monster introduced through their social media is Buzzsaw an original creature part of their animatronics.
Here’s the plot synopsis for the movie
“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.”
It’s definitely going to be interesting to see how the movie will do once it’s released and we will be ready when that trailer drops on Saturday. The movie will star Donavan Colan (“Zoe”), Dylan Frankel (“Raven’s Home”), Jaiden Smith (“Blue Bloods”) and Marissa Reyes (“Raven’s Home”) as well as Christopher Lloyd and Rachael Leigh Cook star in the upcoming feature film. The Spirit Halloween movie will be direct by David Poag and is expected in October 2022.
