Melissa Joan Hart is teaming up with Lifetime to remake the 1980’s Disney cult classic, “Watcher in the Woods.” Hart will be directing the newly re-imagined movie, and Angelica Houston will star as Mrs. Alywood, a role originally played by Bette Davis.

“Watcher in the Woods” was one of Walt Disney Productions first attempts at a horror film. The original movie follows the story of an American teenager who joins her family in an English country house, and begins to experience strange and supernatural occurrences. Mrs. Alywood, the kindly caretaker, knows the dark secret behind the happenings, and prepares for the return of a girl who died 30 years earlier.

The remake has no official release date. Did you watch the original movie? Are you excited about the reboot? Share your thoughts in the comment section!
