There’s something special about movies meant to scare a younger audience. Some of the most beloved films that make the greatest impression on young movie fans are those movies that might appear tame to an older audience but are just scary enough to give some real thrills to kids. It’s part of the reason Disney’s Hocus Pocus has remained popular to this day and is now getting a sequel. Another popular film in the genre is 1990’s The Witches starring Angelica Huston. Rather than getting a sequel, that film is getting the full remake treatment starring Anne Hathaway, and seeing it just got a lot easier and it’s happing much sooner.
Originally, due to the release calendar two-step that every studio has had to dance, The Witches, which was originally set to open just next week, was pushed into 2021, but with no specific date. Today Warner Bros. revealed that, like so many big movies before it, The Witches will be debuting at home rather than going to theaters, and it will open this month after all. The Witches will hit HBO MAX on October 22, and along with that news came a brand new trailer, check it out.
