HUI BUH & WITCH'S CASTLE
MOVIE SEQUEL FROM GERMANY
Speaking of family movies, over in Germany we have a delightful trailer for HUI BUH AND THE WITCH'S CASTLE (Hui Buh und das Hexenschloss) which arrives to cinemas as a sequel to their 2006 movie hit. 14 years have passed since King Julius moved in with Hui Buh at Burgeck Castle.
While Huibuh still suffers greatly from being a laughing stock as a ghost and thus getting on Julius' nerves, he has been going through a hard time since Konstan- zia left him. The yawning emptiness of the castle's treasury slowly but surely becomes unmistakable and contributes to the eternal arguing between the two. Suddenly the little witch Ophelia is at the door and asks her uncle HuiBuh for help. She tells Julius and HuiBuh about her escape from the evil witch Erla, who kidnapped her mother, in search of the Necrominicon, the most powerful magic book in the world. Now she's after Ophelia. HuiBuh sees a unique opportunity to finally get creepy! The book's fabled spells could make his dream of finally being creepy come true.
