Andrew Fleming directs Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk and Neve Campbell in this teen horror where a gang of girls becomes vengeful witches.
Teen Witchcraft… Don’t Do It! Chokers at the ready, pleated mini-skirts on order! Not a perfect film… it is somehow both clunkingly obvious and loosely vague at the very same time. The acting is pretty basic, as is the scope of the drama. However, when it lurches into violence or terror it actually hits home pretty hard. While no The Lost Boys, an obvious influence, it never is boring. A product of its time, opening the garden gate for the superior Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Scream series. Perfect sleepover horror / wish fulfilment for girls experimenting with eye shadow.
