“The Craft” Now on Blu-ray
Do you remember the 1996 film The Craft? I thought it was a great flick and really showed how mean girls can be in high school. While I can relate to some of the things they did, these girls had magic at disposal so you can only imagine the kinds of things they did to each other.
The movie is like Mean Girls meets The Witches of Eastwick and let me just say that it makes for a scary combination. The plot follows Sarah, who is new to St. Benedict’s Academy. As someone who has always been different, she immediately fits in with the high school outsiders but “these girls won’t settle for being powerless misfits. They have discovered The Craft, and they are going to use it.”
Of course, as is often the case with a group of girls, things turn ugly and they start using magic on each other. It’s ludicrous and campy but it’s actually pretty good. If you’ve been waiting for it to come out on Blu-ray you’re in luck – it was released earlier this week!
