Trailer

The trailer gives us a sneak peek on how the powers of this new coven gets out of hand quite quickly when one member doesn't know how to stop using her new found powers. Although, the four memebers of the coven seem to have intresting powers, that could be dangerous if not chosen to be used wisely. This seems to not only be a perfect sequel to the 'The Craft' with a bit of the original films easter eggs, but also can be a Halloween watch this year.
