The witches have returned to Salem and are on the hunt for children after someone reads the Black Flame Candle once again.

“It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge,” the film’s description said. “Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.”

The film was directed by Anne Fletcher, who is known for “The Proposal.”
