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?

Though this horror sequel about a coven of teen witches wastes time on delivering shocks instead of developing character, the feminist fire of filmmaker Zoe Lister-Jones sees to it that there's more here than a Halloween throwaway.

There's magic being performed by this quartet of young witches.

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.

A smart and witty update that pays tribute to the original but is very much its own take on the subject, with a couple of delicious twists along the way.

Sadly, the story collapses in its final leg.
October 29, 2020
The biggest disappointments of The Craft: Legacy stem from it starting off so promisingly, using elements of its source material while heading somewhere unpredictable.

Sadly, it then goes totally haywire, with a third act trading in maudlin melodrama, climaxing in a cheap and poorly directed supernatural battle between the sexes, turning what initially felt like a stone-cold classic into Twilight: Special Witch Edition.

It's through the friendship between the young leads where Legacy shines the brightest, but Lister-Jones seems to struggle everywhere else. Including a central antagonist whose intriguing methods are only teased in fleeting images and a tame finale.

A confused movie.

A frustrating franchise-forward choice aside, this sequel is wickedly fun and bewitching.

Looking to cast a spell of its own, The Craft: Legacy tries some new tricks. It's just a shame that for all the worthwhile additions, it's sometimes more toil than bubble.

"The Craft: Legacy" is a smart, edgy, wickedly funny and wild ride from the talented writer-director Zoe Lister-Jones...

But aside from composer Heather Christian's cool techno theme on the end credits - which is far more memorable than the timid scoring throughout - Legacy left me less than spellbound.

By the end of Legacy, each of the witches has become less interesting and less distinct.

It is a noble effort, if an ultimately doomed one.

The original "Craft" may be a mess, but it does have a legacy, and this ain't it.

"The Craft: Legacy" is firing on all cylinders, looking back respectfully but also showing how the same story in different hands can soar.

As far as franchise revivals go, this one's got the right elements.
