November 30, 2020
The odd millennial update does work, but writer/director Zoe Lister-Jones rushes a toxic masculinity subplot that robs the film of its intended empowerment.

This 2020 movie attempts to recreate The Craft's magic but surprisingly fails to capture any of the fun, or frights, of the original.
November 17, 2020
The movie's biggest flaw is that it never generates any steam until the final act, and even the bad guy is dispatched with relative ease.
November 8, 2020
Rather than take similar themes from the original and scream even louder about the ongoing battles in 2020, The Craft: Legacy manages only a lackluster whimper.
November 6, 2020
I'm not saying that no one can enjoy The Craft: Legacy. Around 70 million people made a bad choice on Election Day, so it's easy to do.
November 5, 2020
That tin-eared self-congratulating opportunism is reflected in the film's construction.
November 5, 2020
There were no real stakes. I just felt like the script was really weak. There wasn't a lot going on and there wasn't a lot of character development.
November 5, 2020
It's toothless, rushes towards its finale, feels underdeveloped, and lacks the magical coven engagement of its predecessor.
November 3, 2020
Legacy never escapes the shadow of its far superior predecessor.
November 2, 2020
David Duchovny is joined by a young cast in this lightweight reboot of a hoped-for franchise that is less than bewitching.
November 2, 2020
Predictable, rushed, and often just boring -- The Craft: Legacy does not live up to it's predecessor.

What doesn't work in 90-odd minutes would fare better laid bare in an eight-episode series. Gee, where's that spell when you need it?

If you're one of those hardcore fans of the original who has a wiccan altar assembled every Halloween in honor of Fairuza Balk, the sequel will only spell disaster.
October 30, 2020
Loses some of the original's edge by slowly devolving into a kind of Riverdale-meets-Blumhouse's Black Christmas.
October 30, 2020
Clearly pales in comparison to the original film, but its deviations are admirable and come from a genuine place. Unfortunately, the poor characterization of the leads handicaps this from being something special.
October 30, 2020
The saddest thing about the new The Craft is that it starts out moderately well and ends up being only passable. [Full review in Spanish]

It's like watching the first two episodes of a television series, if the rest of that series had somehow blinked out of existence.
October 29, 2020
A lot of this film just doesn't work, and a lot of that has to do with the characterizations... There is virtually no attempt to give character to the three [other] girls.
October 29, 2020
Let's remake "The Craft" and rub all its hard, cruel edges off.
October 29, 2020
The film squanders its wonderful potential for a few cheap "aha" moments that never coalesce. In fact, they turn the whole film into one giant, incomprehensible mess.
