After killing her mother in childbirth, growing up in San Francisco with her father and stepmother, attempting suicide, and moving to Los Angeles, Sarah (Robin Tunney) makes a brief stab at popularity at her new Catholic high school. Ostracized due to the untrue kiss-and-tell tales of football player Chris (Skeet Ulrich), Sarah reluctantly befriends a trio of self-styled outsiders: the horribly scarred Bonnie (Neve Campbell), the trailer-trash Nancy (Fairuza Balk), and Rochelle (Rachel True), a frequent victim of anti-black prejudice at the hands of Laura Lizzie (former Marcia Brady and future Mrs. Ben Stiller, Christine Taylor). After exhibiting latent telekenitic powers in front of Bonnie, Sarah learns that her three new friends have chosen her as their "fourth corner," the final member of their supernatural coven. Using tools stolen from a local incense-and-candle-filled boutique for practitioners of magic, the quartet summons the power of Manon, a primitive deity, to exact revenge on their tormentors and transform their lives. Drunk with power, they watch their spells get out of control, and the new coven soon realizes that with magic, "whatever you give comes back three-fold." This mid-'90s horror flick scored first place at the box office its opening weekend despite its then-unknown cast and modest budget. TV star Neve Campbell, who didn't even receive top billing, would go on to become the '90s answer to '70s horror queen Jamie Lee Curtis in the Scream franchise.

I watched this in high school over and over again so i ended up buying it on VHS. I admit I am a sucker for any sci-fi Wicca movies (I love Charmed). Of course it may not be accurate but who cares Buffy isn't either. It's just good fun don't take it seriously. I felt like some of the girls did in high school and I can relate to them which makes this movie even more enjoyable. I loved the special effects and of course Neve Cambell steals every scene she's in. A must own. This is one of the better teen movies to come out in the 90's (and trust me, there were a LOT of bad ones). Highly reccomended!

I never knew witches were so sexy! The only reason I saw this movie was because my cousin and I were bored and it was late and this was the last movie showing at the theatre. It turned out to be a great movie. The fact that the witches were hot didn't hurt either. Four sexy witches, what more can you ask for?

No offense to Merlin-Reincarnated (review below), but much of the history of the craft is shockingly misrepresented in this movie. The only real and true sentiment in it is the fact that witches do not, in fact, worship the devil--a common misconception among the uninformed. Overall, a good movie--the soundtrack alone makes it worth at least one viewing. (And, Merlin-Reincarnated, how much detail about Alchemy do you REALLY expect in a movie like this? If you're looking for details on how to harness real witchcraft, read a good book....)

There are quite a few movies one can watch that involve teenage girls with malicious vendettas, none of which are nearly as uniquely entertaining as this one. Rather than spreading rumours and gossip, these girls are out to spread some magic and mayhem. The movie stars some semi-familiar faces, especially Campbell, who plays a burnscarred supporting girl, more of a henchman role than anything, yet she shines remarkably in it. The other girls are all lesser known actresses, though they should not be, each of them played well in this flick about a new spin on the term "Girl power". Twisting alot of traditional wiccan customs to fit the needs of the plot, this movie is one that is made for the teenage crowd. Don't count it out if you're an adult though, there are some overtones that less mature audiences wouldn't understand. A good movie, perhaps not a classic, but definately worth watching more than once.

This movie is pure 24K Gold and nothing less. It presents the craft in it's true glory and dangerous sexy edge. Perfect in so many ways, I can't even begin to describe. It took real vision and skill to manifest this film. And for those who are intelligent enough to use the human power, this movie makes a nice accessory to your life-stlye. The only dissapointment I have is the lack of presentation on Alchemy, and the Stone of the Wise. I know so much about the physical DNA enhancements that are made by pinoline (released from the pineal gland) and other 8Hz superconductors, and yet this movie like so many others, reveals nothing about how to obtain true power. I guess only those who have the means and will to search on are the only ones who will find the real power.

I know everyone will agree with me on this review. If I was a director a producer. I will make part two of The Craft. Or make a Tv series.

The Craft is an asowme flim! Allthough most of what was done in the movie can't be achived by most witches, it was entertaining non the less. As a witch I do hope to gain at least half the power that was diplayed in this movie.
