HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL star Vanessa Hudgens just announced a new unscripted movie about her “spiritual witchcraft journey.”
The new movie, DEAD HOT: SEASON OF THE WITCH, is reportedly a 90-minute exploration of the “supernatural.”
The project also features Hudgens’ friend, GG Magreem, as the pair of them go to Salem, Massachusetts, to educate themselves on witchcraft.
Movieguide® founder Dr. Ted Baehr discussed the topic in a recent interview with The Christian Post.
“Having grown up in the entertainment industry, with parents who were stars (my father starred in 62 movies), I engaged in all aspects of paganism, until four women who had come to know Jesus Christ at the New York Madison Square Garden Billy Graham Crusade in the 1950s helped me to know Jesus Christ in the 1970s,” Baehr said. “What I found was that none of the people in the many new age, pagan and occult spheres liked each other; in fact, they hated each other. So, the Love of Jesus Christ was refreshing.”
Baehr added that spirituality apart from Christ will never satisfy.
“All the false religions and occult practices failed ultimately to deliver because the Adversary promises but never really delivers. In contrast, Jesus Christ always delivers on his great promises, such as His promise to give each of us a more abundant life and freedom,” he said. “We need to pray for her.”
Pastor Mike Signorelli, the head pastor of V1 Church in New York City, said that witchcraft is normalized by mainstream media and companies like Disney.
“[B]ecause the more influencers and people that he can get to normalize the demonic, the easier it is to get the masses to receive it in their lives,” Signorelli said. “So, this is a concerted effort. If you’re a Christian, if you’re a believer, and if you have discernment, it’s very obvious to see.”
“All throughout Scripture, witchcraft actually shows up as counterfeit comfort and counterfeit power,” he continued. “It’s always going to show up in a form to make you think, ‘Oh, this is how I’m going to meet the love of my life. This is how I’m going to prosper financially. This is how I’m going to excel in life.’ It always comes in the form of success.”
