Spirit Halloween: The Movie, the adventure-horror film based on the ubiquitous but volatile Spirit Halloween retail chain of spooky seasonal stores, now has its first full trailer. It arrived on Thursday (September 8) after a teaser trailer appeared last month.
Spirit Halloween: The Movie opens in a limited theatrical release in September. 30. It starts streaming on Oct. 11, with a DVD release reportedly. The film will also be screened at this year’s Nashville Film Festival and Florida’s Popcorn Freight Wicked Weekend.

Variety reported it in April Spirit Halloween was a family-friendly picture rather than a more adult-oriented gore feature. It stars Christopher Lloyd (The Addams Family, Back to the Future), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Amityville: The Awakening, Fast times at Ridgemont High), Marla Gibbs (Days of our lives, 227), Donavan Colan, Dylan Frankel and Marissa Reyes.
ONE Spirit Halloween synopsis explains: “When a new Spirit Halloween store pops up in a deserted mall, three middle school friends who think they’ve outgrown trick-or-treating dare to spend the night locked inside the store [on] Halloween night.”
But they “soon learn that the store is haunted by an angry evil spirit who has possessed the creepy animatronic characters,” it added. “The children embark on an exciting and spooky adventure [to] survive the night and avoid being possessed yourself.”
Spirit Halloween is filmmaker David Poag’s directorial debut, with a screenplay by Billie Bates. It was produced by Shannon Houchins and Strike Back Studios’ Noor Ahmed in association with Hideout Pictures, Particular Crowd and Film Mode Entertainment.
And it certainly looks to be a fun Halloween movie for everyone. What do you think? Are you ready to be scared Spirit Halloween: The Movie?
