I've never subscribed to this genre of movie...I found a lot of this stuff to just not be palatable. But for its time, it's an okay movie.

The effects are obviously a bit rough around the edges, and the acting is very mixed.

[It] will perhaps inspire a few rebel kids to search out a black-magic emporium or to make the sort of fashion statements that make Balk so amusingly spooky. All others should balk at taking in this suspenseless, hollow, kitchily crafted Carrie.

At an over-long 100 minutes, it's not likely to cast a spell over anyone.

The plot, in short, is beneath our interest. What is intriguing is that the four actresses succeed in playing their characters as realistic modern teenagers--the underside of the coin from Clueless... The movie's failure is one of imagination.

It's a depressingly mundane affair which can't make up its mind whether it's a comedy or a teen romance or a horror thriller.

Fairuza Balk completes the cycle from Dorothy Gale to wicked witch; too bad the film can't keep up with her.

I still don't know what the intention of The Craft was. Was it supposed to be a comedy? A thriller? A horror flick? More like a music video, if you ask me.

The focus is on the girl's emotions and tries to address modern teenage issues (peer pressure, rape, drugs, etc.), but eventually turns into nothing but a low-impact horror movie.

If only The Craft were as fresh as its enchanting lead quartet.

What can you say about a movie that seems to have been conceived like a trailer and written in exclamation points and gets stolen by the cinematographer?

The early going is interesting, amusing and even clever, but such cinematic niceties give way to a disappointing second hour.

Despite heroic efforts of four promising young actresses in the starring roles and a nifty premise, the movie is a mess: so incoherently plotted that dramatic tension doesn't have a chance to build.

Amusing but unmemorable.
