A newcomer to a Catholic prep high school falls in with a trio of outcast teenage girls who practice witchcraft and they all soon conjure up various spells and curses against those who even slightly anger them.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
2.5* I sorta get the cult behind it, and it's entertaining on a first watch, but I ended up longing for it to be over. Probably wouldn't watch it again. (Fairuza Balk really knows how to go all out huh)
It stands out from every other pre 2000's teen film in my opinion. The cgi is laughable and some of the lines are so bad but oh my god.. It's such a fun and knowingly silly movie that explores the themes of teenage angst, jealousy and abuse of power. There's a reason it's considered a cult classic
I remember watching this at a time when Nevel Campbell was like the ultimate girl next door and Farusia Balk was one of the best young actresses in Hollywood. What Hollywood needs now is more Farusia Balk (even though she looks very scary in almost every film).
