    The Craft is a lot more clever than I would have given it credit based on its precis. It's a high school horror-drama about four teenage witches getting what they want from a powerful spell, then discovering that their bounty comes with a curse. While there are squirmy bugs, it plays like Buffy more than Carrie (and may have been an inspiration for that show, from the looks of it), though in no way does it deserve the R rating it originally got. Behind the pretty faces, 90s soundtrack and occasionally dodgy CG is a film that shows it research into witchcraft, and a nimble way of exposing its themes without pointing them out too obviously. It's the kind of film where watching it several times yields some interesting background gags, for example. If horror isn't your thing, but you want to do the Halloween thing, you could do worse than check out this supernatural coming of age film. 2 years 6 months ago
