"Campy" is the perfect word to describe this witchy, fun, bizarre movie.

a true 90's classic, the story of a friendship who aren't really even friends, there is no true bond that they claim to have in the end. fun and exciting film, something you can watch again and again.

As someone who typically hates teenage coven movies, this is the exception. The Craft is an absolute classic. What The Shinning does for haunting movies, and Lost Boys does for Vampires, The Craft does for witches.

Classic 1990's coming of age drama with a witch theme.

The Craft (1996) is like The Crow (1994) with witches. It's an absolute dark delight. The 90's grungy aesthetic, practical effects, beautiful cuts, goth girls, intimate close ups, dark themes, and innovative camera ideas fill the screen much to my pleasure.

Speaking of The Crow, The Craft utilizes the same composer, Graeme Revell, whose alternative rock work graces the sorrow and scares alike to great effect. His sad teenage sounds elevate the high school drama and bring you right into the 90's.

The highlight of The Craft is certainly the cast for the youthful coven of witches. The Craft features classic 1990's leading ladies. They carry every scene with a realism for the time. Fairuza Balk is the head witch Nancy with goth outfits and make-up to spare. Her portrayal of depression, anger, and insanity is just simply a joy to watch her act. Robin Tunney delivers her finest acting ever as the lead Sarah. Tunney is pretty, likable, depressed, and devious simultaneously. She nails Sarah. Neve Campbell plays the dejected Bonnie without confidence over her terrible burn scars. Lastly, Rachel True is excellent as Rochelle with her uncertainty and strength. They all kill their respective role.

In all, The Craft is now my favorite movie with witches. It's fun, funny, and horrifying all at the same time. You care about these girls as they struggle to cope with high school, bullies, poverty, trauma, depression, boys, and friendship. The Craft is equal parts coming of age drama and witch themed horror in all its 90's glory.

I love this teenybopper movie! It?s a film you can watch again and again. It never gets old. A classic that will live on!

Very kitsch-y teenage "witches" film, with cheap effects and a very boring plot. Some OK moments, but nothing really funny and nothing inventive or overly interesting.

Slots with ease into it's time period, creative in it's themes and visuals, The Craft is a odd teen drama/horror hybrid that dual-wields the best of both worlds with ease. Though never reaching it's ultimate potential, and at times feeling like a combination of other horror and teen drama media tropes. The Craft gets enough right to overcome it's flaws.

Above average melding of the classic teen film with genuine supernatural thrills. Notably of its time style-wise, but holds up storywise.

Cheap special effects and acting, but it has its moment. It clearly inspired Charmed the tv series, they even used "How soon is now" as their opening.

The Craft is still compelling and super fun after all these years, and will continue to be appealing to those who are into 90s aesthetics.

This is one of my all time favorite movies. I wish they made a second one to see where the girls ended up in the future.
