From Amazon.co.uk

If Buffy the Vampire Slayer represents the lighter side of high school as a macabre experience, here's a movie that asks the burning question, "What happens when angst-ridden teenagers develop supernatural powers?" More to the point, how do four outcast teenaged witches handle their ability to cast wicked spells on the taunting classmates who've nicknamed them "The Bitches of Eastwick"? The answer, of course, is "don't get mad, get even." That's about all there is to this terminally silly movie, which makes up for its ludicrous plot by letting its young female cast have a field day as they indulge their dark fantasies. Fairuza Balk is enjoyable as the most wicked of the witches, and is therefore the focus of the film's most dazzling special effects. But it's Neve Campbell from television's Party of Five who made this film a modest box-office hit, just before she became her generation's fright-movie favorite in Scream and its popular sequel. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding! 30 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
The best thing about this film is Fairuza Balk; she's a brilliant actress with a penchant for crazy bitch roles (see American History X for her as a diminuitive psycho Neo-Nazi) and as far removed from the plastic Hollywood blonde as you could wish! Her manic performance easily steals the show, but her co-stars put up a fairly good fight, particularly Robin Tunney as the quiet, but intense Sarah (the film's heroine, to be sure).
Three schoolgirls (Neve Campbell, Balk,Rachel True)are the resident campus weirdos who dabble in witchcraft. Along comes Sarah with the ability for the craft to make up the 4th corner of the witches' circle. All goes swimmingly as they plot revenge spells against their classmates forgetting the lesson of Karma. Classmates get just desserts but lo and behold, the witches find that in the process they too begin to suffer. Nancy (Balk) decides to cast the daddy of all spells, turns into the barmy army and all hell breaks loose. You still with me? Can Sarah fight off Nancy's assault, can the natural balance be restored? Hmm, for those answers, you'll have to watch!
This film is like catnip for disenfranchised teens, but it's pretty entertaining viewing for those who just enjoy a supernatural thrill. The Craft is no deep and meaningful journey and there's no mystical/religious semiplot (like Stigmata for example) to complicate the popcorn value. Plus there is a nice patchouli scented soundtrack featuring, for starters, How Soon Is Now, which seems to crop up in every spooky film/tv series going!
This is recommended dark, lonely night viewing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick Reviews! 14 Sep 2007
By carlosnightman VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Some reviewers seem to have the wrong idea about this film. It is cleary not supposed to be scary, not in the traditional sense anyway and nor is it supposed to be another high school comedy. The nineties brought a resurgence of teen horror and comedy movies onto our screen, 90% of which are awful, but this one was different. The Craft refuses to be labeled as horror or comedy although it has strong elements of both, and it is more akin to Heathers than any other recent film. The humour is dark, biting, hitting at modern teen society, while the horror is psychological, dealing with transformation, our deepest personal fears, exposure of our secrets, and the the question of whether we can truly know or trust our friends and peers.

Campbell is as gorgeous as always, her performance is strongg and convincing, showing a different side to her Party Of Five role. Balk is superb, taking her character by the teeth and plays with devilish relish. The rest of the cast is respectable, and both the script and effects are sharp, giving the movie a darker tone than any of its contemporaries. The clichés are there, with the outsider becoming the hero, but the result is never boring or predictable. Forget your knowledge of magic if you have any, and any preconceptions about teen movies, because this one is cool, dark, entertaining stuff.

The DVD has a few good extras, a short documentary being worthwhile. This can usually be picked up for less than a fiver, so snap it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Fairuza Balk! 8 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
The Craft is one of my Top Ten films of all time, mainly because of the performance of Fairuza Balk who plays Nancy Downs, one of the main characters in the film. Nancy Downs is the kind of girl you don't need in your life unless you really want to be led astray! This film also raises an interesting question, a bit like St Trinian's, what would happen in real life if teenage girls really did band together with evil/mischievous intent? They'd take over the world I bet!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Retro Fun 19 May 2010
By Emily
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film was bought for a girly night in, and it really fills that criteria! It is NOT a 'chick flick' but is still perfect for an evening in.

The cast is brilliant and the acting is of a high standard. Although a few of the effects may be slightly dated, it doesn't detract from the film at all. In fact, instead of special effects they use 'real' props (hundreds of snakes and rats and spiders!) which makes it 'believable'.

The film has you on the edge of your seat the entire time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good 24 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Didn't thin i'd like the film. I bought it for my other half as a present, she really likes it, the film plods along a bit but is quite good for a film you don't need to watch every second of.

4.0 out of 5 stars Teenage Witchcraft fun film 26 Jun 2013
Format:DVD
THE CRAFT R2 DVD

I bought this film for my grand-daughter and expected it to be total nonsense but it actually turned out to be quite a good little film with passable performances from all four of the adolescent key actors, a reasonable storyline and script plus good special effects.

OK, it is typical mid-1990s teenage fare, released when the craze for teenage witches, werewolves and vampires was at it's zenith with the younger female demographic, but it is quite harmless fun and overall a fairly decent film.
