The new Halloween-themed movie is making its’ Disney Channel premiere TONIGHT!
When a traveling Hall of Horrors show arrives in the town of Danville, a group of high school friends can’t wait to get spooked. The monsters, zombies, and ghouls are completely lifelike; and the villainous showman, Dr. Hysteria, and his enchanting assistant, Lilith (Katherine McNamara), really know how to turn up the scares.
But when someone discovers a haunted cabinet backstage that traps the souls of lost teens, it’s up to the gang to stop the mayhem before they are trapped forever.
“Ayyy, WE DID IT! Two real life movies!” the actress, who plays Mal in the movies, shared on Instagram with a sweet note to her on-screen fam.
Dove continued, “I struggle to come up with words that accurately express the pure love and gratitude that my heart produces every day for these people, this project and this incredible alternate reality and life we’ve cultivated together. Kenny: you are a hero to me. You are forever my family, my confidant, guiding light, influence for fun choices ???? and true friend. I would follow you anywhere.
“Sofia, Cameron, Boo, everyone involved on every level: My life is actively enriched every single day because you love me, and I plan to love you for the rest of my life. The fact that we get to make crazy movies and music together is an added bonus to already beautiful and grounded relationships. Disney channel and Descendants has changed my life forever and in ways that I cannot count, and I would do 100 more of these movies with you all tomorrow, if I could. I will never be able to express my gratitude. Forever yours, xx.”
