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
By virtue of its time, it runs into some problems matching music and tone (the slow, acoustic guitar songs are unforgivable), and the characters are generally pretty broad (though FaIruza Balk gives everything to her role), but if you're down for some witchcraft, and feminine teenage collectivism gone awry, then you'll probably enjoy this one.
I actually enjoyed watching it. I just wished there was more to the story, more to the music, and better character development. Haha. I think I just gave it 3/5 because while the movie may not be perfect, I had fun watching it. It's like one of those iconic movies...
Four hot witches take revenge on the world (for a while). It is a decent written story that at least tries to think about consequences when tampering with black magic. The actresses are likeable as well. Some overdramatic "scare" moments, dated effects and lapses in logic is weaknesses of the film.
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
