31 Days of Halloween: Day 23: The Craft (1996) – A Dark Tale about a Group of Teenage Witches
You might like this movie if you enjoyed:
The Witches of Eastwick (1987), Jawbreaker (1999)
Long Story Short:
A new student at a Catholic prep school makes friends with three girls who introduce her into the world of witchcraft. What seems to be fun and harmless at first soon turns into a dangerous game.
The Craft might sound like a teenage movie, but it has a very dark, intense undertone, and a banging soundtrack: For example, at the beginning you hear How Soon Is Now? by The Smiths, which is also the theme song of the TV-Show Charmed, starring Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, and Shannon Doherty, who later got replaced by Rose McGowan. The actors are great, especially Fairuza Balk, I mean, can it get any creepier? And even though the actors were much older than the characters they were playing, it seems realistic. The Craft is a movie I can watch over and over again, because there are so many interesting aspects to look at: the amazing camera work, the interesting storyline, the facts about witchcraft, and if you look at it, it basically shows you the consequences of bullying.
Definitely a must see… not only during Halloween.
