The iconic 1996 horror movie The Craft is set to be the latest cult classic to receive a belated sequel, with a follow-up film set to arrive on Amazon Prime next month.

Despite lukewarm critical reception, the original film was a surprise box-office hit at the time of its release and has since gone on to become one of the defining horror films of the late ’90s, complete with cult fanbase. Set in Los Angeles, it follows a group of outcast teenage girls who begin experimenting with witchcraft to improve their lives, before finding that they are tackling forces far beyond their control.

Not only was The Craft an unexpected success, but it served as an early star-making vehicle for actors like Neve Campbell, who went on to front the Scream franchise (and is confirmed to return for the series’ next installment), as well as the ’90s indie star Faruiza Balk.

The reboot will feature upcoming actress Cailee Spaeny as the lead, with X-Files star David Duchovny and Mission Impossible actor Michelle Monaghan in supporting roles. This time around, it will be helmed by a female director, Zoe Lister-Jones, perhaps best known for a series of independent drama films and TV show roles. Though little is known about the direction the new version will take, beyond that it will have a modern-day setting, Screenrant has speculated that it will offer a more female-focused perspective than the source material.

The Craft is set for release on Amazon Prime on October 27.

In other horror news, M. Night Shyamalan has shared details of his next film project.
