A cult classic, the movie didn’t rock the box office when it impacted theatres but rose via positive word-of-mouth reviews and a Pop Rock soundtrack which featured songs performed by Marianne Faithfull, Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Morrissey.

This movie is awesome. I saw it first out of my group of friends who were like ‘Yeah whatever’. They saw it shortly after and all came into school the next day like ‘OMG we #The Craft, it was f**king amazing!’. Such an influential movie, with realistic teenagers unlike those awful Twilight films.
I remember watching this as a kid Nancy was my fave i wished it had a sequel or series made from it….this movie is soooo iconic
I love this movie so much and it meant so much to me growing up as a kid with a love of the supernatural and witchcraft. This is a movie I’d be open to seeing a remake of, especially now with the technological advances and just to see how a coven of young witches would be in today’s crazy times.
