The Sanderson sisters have returned once again, this time, resurrected not by a virgin who lit the black flame candle, but by three young girls. As the witches begin plotting how they’ll seek revenge on all of modern-day Salem and capture the souls of young children, the girls must find a way to stop them before dawn on All Hallow's Eve.

As anxious as you may be to watch the movie, we should let you know Omri Katz (who played Max Dennison) and Thora Birch (who played Dani Dennison) won’t be reprising their roles. But an appearance may be made by the ghoulish yet friendly Billy the zombie.
