You know about Spirit Halloween, right? It’s that emerging retail store that takes up empty space in the store to sell costumes and other Halloween-related products during the horror season, and then leaves when all the tricks and costumed antics are over. Well, later in 2022, Spirit Halloween will capture more than just retail interest from its 1,425 locations across North America as a chain-focused horror movie hit the streets.
Spirit Halloween has teamed up with Strike Back Studios, Hideout Pictures and Particular Crowd to offer a feature Halloween spirit a movie that, while full of scary elements, is meant to be a family offering. The story follows three middle-aged friends who dare to spend the night locked in a Spirit Halloween shop located in a deserted mall. Unfortunately, the trio soon learn that this store is haunted by an angry spirit possessed by the creepy animatronic characters, so they have to embark on a terrifying adventure to survive the night and avoid becoming demonized themselves.

While the horror genre has thrived in recent years, through both major franchises like Carnival and The callas well as autonomous offers such as Get out and Ready or not, this is another corner of the movie sphere that is aimed mainly at adults. Sure, every now and then we get something like Creepy the The house with a clock on its walls (the latter won the approval of Steven Spielberg) to give children a taste of horror without going too deep into scary lands, but it certainly looks like a subgenre that is not served. Still, at least Halloween spirit is another option for little ones to check out this Halloween season if they are not in the mood to watch Hocus Pocus 2 with Disney + subscription.
