I saw my first horror movie at age 7 and was hooked ever since catching A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3: Dream Warriors on television. I started attending horror conventions over 15 years ago when my friends and I went to Monster-Mania Con 2 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ. Last weekend, I took my 8-year old daughter Charlotte to her first horror convention, Monster-Mania Con 42, at the same hotel my friends and I waited to meet our horror heroes nearly two decades earlier. While she had a great time, being there to experience this with her was a parenting dream come true for me.

“We are the weirdos, mister.”
Co-written and directed by Andrew Fleming (Bad Dreams), 1996’s The Craft centers on a coven of teenage outcasts at a Catholic high school who practice witchcraft, conjuring spells and curses against those who anger them.
Released on May 3, 1996, The Craft was a sleeper hit, opening at number one at the North American box office and earning an impressive $55 million with a budget of $15 million. In the years since its release, the movie has gained a cult following and has been seen as a rite of passage for those who respond to its themes of female empowerment, sisterhood, and outsiderdom.
If you’ve been craving a nice remake—you know, a change of pace from all the original content being produced—a new one is on the way. It’s being reported that Sony Pictures is set to remake their 1996 witching horror The Craft, which starred Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, and Rachel True.
