Little Nicky director and star Steven Brill and Adam Sandler have teamed up once again for Hubie Halloween, a new horror-comedy that will hit Netflix next month as part of the streaming platform’s Netflix and Chills Halloween line-up.
Set in Salem, Massachusetts, Hubie Halloween follows the titular Hubie Dubois (Sandler), a figure of mockery who spends every Halloween making sure the town’s residents celebrate safely and play by the rules. But this year, an escaped criminal and a mysterious neighbour have Hubie on high alert—and when people start disappearing, he must convince the police and townsfolk that the monsters are real and only he can stop them.
Starring alongside Sandler are Kevin James (Becky), Julie Bowen (Horrible Bosses), Ray Liotta (Hannibal), Steve Buscemi (Fargo), Rob Schneider (Judge Dredd), Michael Chiklis (American Horror Story), Noah Schnapp (Stranger Things), Shaquille O’Neal (Scary Movie 4), June Squibb (Would You Rather), China Anne McClain (Descendants 2), Paris Berelc (Alexa & Katie), Tim Meadows (Mean Girls), Colin Quinn (Trainwreck), Karan Brar (Bunk’d), Kym Whitley (Rango), Lavell Crawford (Breaking Bad), Betsy Sodaro (All Hail King Julien), George Wallace (Batman Forever), and Blake Clark (Little Nicky). Saturday Night Live regulars Maya Rudolph, Kenan Thompson, Melissa Villaseñor, and Mikey Day also star. The script was co-written by Sandler and Tim Herlihy.
