A 666-Character Review Of ‘The Craft’
Sarah transfers to a new school to start fresh after traumatic experiences. A trio of outcasts target her after seeing her magic abilities to complete their coven. They enjoy the power she brings, but reject her when she starts questioning. The Craft has the cliquey nature of Mean Girls and the morbid humor and body count of Heathers with a bit of magic. I didn’t notice until now that she was the worst person with horrible, selfish choices. The villains have more relatable problems (and better acting skills), causing Sarah to fade to the background in comparison until the very end. Fairuza Balk’s over the top acting makes the film and Nancy iconic. This tale of magical mean girls is cheesy fun if you don’t mind dated fashion, cheesy acting, and bad CGI. Definitely a nostalgic guilty pleasure.
