The mischevious force behind these nightmares turn out to be Wendell (Key) and Wild (Peele), a scheming set of brother demons. With Kat’s help, they plan to take down Sister Helly before she can have them exorcized.

“Everyone’s got demons; mine have names,” she says in voiceover.

There’s plenty fans of Selick’s earlier films will find familiar in the strange creatures, ghost-like monsters and settings bursting with detail. Co-written with Peele, “Wendell & Wild” is sure to feature some of the horror maestro’s signature chops for comedy and creative scares in equal measure. James Hong, Ving Rhames and Ramona Young also lend their voices to the cast.

“Wendell & Wild” will release in select theaters Oct. 21 before its Netflix premiere on Oct. 28.
