Summer is halfway done meaning one of two things, either you’ll start seeing stores get ready for Christmas which is always too early or you’ll start seeing stores like Spirt Halloween opening making their return, but this year we’re getting something a lot scarier.
Coming from the pop-up retailer Spirt Halloween a movie about the seasonal Halloween store is releasing this year with legendary actor Christopher Lloyd, known for his iconic role as Doc Brown in 1985 hit Back to the Future.
Now returned as the ghostly star of the film, we see a group of kids trapped in an abandoned Spirit Halloween, however, what makes it terrifying is that the animatronics have come to life in an attempt to hunt the kids.
Perhaps taking some inspiration from the modern horror series Five Nights at Freddy’s in which players must survive five nights in a pizza restaurant while evading killer animatronics.

A group of kids played by Donovan Colan, Dylan Martin Frankel, Jaiden J. Smith, and Marissa Reyes must work together to avoid all kinds of spooky scares to avoid being possessed by the ghost of Alex Windsor played by Lloyd.
Spirit Halloween released the trailer for the upcoming film on July 30th of last month as stores have started to get ready for the Autumn season. While this might not be a horror film like the Halloween or Paranormal Activity franchise it may turn out to be a good adventure fantasy film.
Though until the official release on October 11th, the movie is currently growing in interest on websites like IMDB so keep this one on your calendars.
This year we certainly have been getting some strange concepts for horror films like this one as well as Winnie-The-Pooh: Blood and Honey which currently sits at rank 52 for IMDB’s most popular movies.
