Sarah has always been different. So as the newcomer at St. Benedict’s Academy, she immediately falls in with high school outsiders. But there’s something different about her new friends, and it’s not just that they won’t settle for being a group of powerless misfits. They have discovered The Craft … and they are going to use it.

It might be hard for all of you to believe, but I’ve never before seen The Craft until I got this Blu-ray from Scream Factory. That’s with me even having owned the DVD for a number of years. Now having seen it I can see where the love for it comes from. The plot revolves around a trio of witches that are looking for their fourth member just so they can be complete and summon a higher power. And you wouldn’t you know it that girl has moved to town when the movie starts. At first, all is good and they use their powers for what seems like harmless things, but in a trait that would go on to be used in other movies about teenage witches, things go wrong and we start some in-fighting within the group. It’s a fun one even with some of the stuff you can see coming from a mile away. This is also a movie that female horror fans tend to love and it doesn’t take too long into watching it to see where that love comes from. It feels like something aimed at the teens of the time, but it does remain pretty solid today.

We have a solid cast, an interesting enough plot, and a pretty solid home stretch. So, if you are like me and you hadn’t seen this one before then you shouldn’t have a hard time finishing it if you do decide to give it a watch. It also has 90s Neve Campbell, who should probably be a national treasure (along with any other girl from the old Part of Five show). The disc also comes with some brand new interviews with people behind the movie. Sadly, none are with the cast just the director and such, but it’s still packing old features and looks pretty good. So if you like this one you’ll probably want this release regardless.
