In the shooting script, as well as early edits of the film, it is implied that only Sarah has actual magic powers, and that the other girls' abilities are merely a result of their leaching off of Sarah's magic. See more »
When Sara walks in to the room at the party where Nancy and Chris are on the bed, as soon as Nancy appears to be in her own form again, you can see that her lipstick is smeared almost to the point of being completely gone. However, when she gets off of the bed and begins yelling at Chris, her lipstick is perfect. See more »

This movie was better than I expected. It's about a girl who moves and meets three girls at her new school, who seem to be practicing witchcraft... The movie certainly appealed to me, the acting was not bad, certainly Robin Tunney (who plays Veronica in "Prison Break") did a good job, but also Neve Campbell and Rachel True are acting alright. The only person of who I didn't like the acting, was Fairuza Balk. Her voice is (in this movie) not exactly the nicest voice to listen to. But she dóés have some good moments in this movie. Director Andrew Fleming, who's budget for The Craft wasn't so big, did a good job. The movie is -at least in the first half- a good combination between a thriller and a comedy, in the end, all the comedy disappears, the atmosphere darkens and we get a fairly exciting thriller. Some of the special effects are very good. The music was o.k., but (except for a few scenes) nothing more. If you have the chance to watch this, try it! The movie will certainly not appeal to everyone, the movie is more for teenagers and people in their early twenties, I think. Many older people won't appreciate this film so much. But everyone should give The Craft a try!
