Much like many Blumhouse horrors, The Craft: Legacy is amusing, stylish and easy-viewing but, with Zoe Lister-Jones in the director's chair, this feature is particularly 'woke'.

So, to get in the spirit, Sony Pictures invited me to a special viewing party to celebrate the early release of the film becoming available to Download & Keep (via Apple Store, Prime Video, Sky Store & Google Play).

It couldn't be more simple and easy to add a little atmosphere.
