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

[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.

It's rare enough in these days of studio megahype to be pleasantly surprised by a relatively unheralded movie, but such is the case with the second film from the director Andrew Davies
December 5, 2018
... deliciously dangerous excursions into adolescent self-discovery.

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 Craft casts a relatively potent spell.
December 5, 2018
The glossy style and neat visual effects combine with a few genuinely creepy moments to make this above-average genre fare, though the full-on sorcery showdown belongs in another movie.

Still, with suitable suspension of disbelief this makes for agreeable enough nonsense.

The best teen flick since Clueless is The Craft.
October 25, 2018
The great strength of The Craft is that it doesn't pass judgment on why the girls are doing what they do... The film's message of female empowerment felt cathartic, but so did its rage.

Will appeal to fantasy and horror buffs alike.

Campy teen witch thriller more violent than fun.

The 1970s-style special effects do little to distract us from an uneven script, direction and performances. Yet there's enough here for us to hope it'll come together.

Fleming's film begins promisingly as a black comedy a la Heathers, but then quickly succumbs to its machinery of special effects; this is yet another bad picture in a long list of Hollywood flops about witchcraft.

Supernatural fun with attitude.
| Original Score: 4/5

Fairuza Balk completes the cycle from Dorothy Gale to wicked witch; too bad the film can't keep up with her.
| Original Score: 2/5

Imagine "The Lost Boys," only they're girls instead of boys ... and they're witches instead of vampires.

February 14, 2001
It places heavy demands on its four lead actresses, who come through in impressive fashion. Director and co-writer Andrew Fleming makes sure he and his stars deliver the goods.
January 1, 2000
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.

Unfortunately, this catty black comedy is buried under an onslaught of unimaginative special effects.
