I remember watching The Craft when I was a young kid and thinking it was a really really good witch movie. Eh, I was young. The Craft is okay. It has a lot of plot holes. Really the third act of this movie makes little sense and is rather annoying.
There’s nothing special about The Craft and I don’t see myself revisiting this one anytime soon. Or ever again for that matter. It’s a cool idea, four high witches, but you have a good witch, two neutral witches, and a bad witch. But if that’s the case why do both of the neutral wicthes turn bad instantly. There’s no progression to their evilness, they just become evil! Like that! Oh, is that how people work? One day I’m like yeah I do a little good, maybe something not so good every once in a while and then BAM I’m evil. And the evil witch is mean, but then instantly becomes a murderer?! And yet the good witch had a slow progression? The movie has a lot of consistency issues.
If you want to reminisce about the 90s and you remember The Craft fondly, sure put this on, but that’s on you.
