Product Description

Sarah (Robin Tunney) has just moved to L.A. and started a new school. Feeling alienated by her new surroundings she takes up with Nancy, Bonnie and Rochelle, who have distinctive black lipstick and nails. It transpires that they have recently been dabbling in the occult, and with Sarah their union becomes more powerful. As they learn witchcraft, they become powerful enough to punish their enemies at school and make their dreams come true. The soundtrack features songs from Elastica, Portishead and Siouxsie and the Banshees.

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 --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

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!

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.

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!!

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!

Besides the really good cast the plot to this is really good!!

It follows the main character who moves house with her family, she ends up befriending three other girls who are all friends but outcasts of the school they attend in different ways.

The main character soon discovers her new friends practise witchcraft, hoping that it will change there lives in different ways.

It follows that there prayers start to come true due to their new friend, however with all the fun comes consequences, and things start to go wrong.

This movie deals with so many issues, like wanting to accepted, feeling alone, friendship, the consequences of your actions aswell as having comedy, romance and suspense.

I don't often give a movie five stars but this deserves it. I was only a child in the 90's but i love watching films like this and clueless to remind me of childhood. Neve Campbell proves what a versatile actress she is as this character is completely different to Sydeny in Scream, it's nice to see the not popular girls in the lime light and it teaches us that's it's ok to be unique. The witchcraft is well done, it was a huge craze in the late 90's.
It's dated now, you know it's the mid 90's by the style of clothes. The music is also excellent, defiantly of it's time.
