The text of the book "Invocation of the Spirit" that Nancy reads from in the magic shop comes from "The Book of Ceremonial Magic" by Arthur Edward Waite, a well-known occultist. The book does discuss invocation of spirits, although it is not the focus of the entire book as implied in the film. See more »

The edited-for-television version of the film omits profanities and other potentially offensive dialog. This includes Laura's racist comment that she is torturing Rochelle because "I don't like Negroids"; omitting this dialog also omits the entire reason why the girls cast a spell on Laura that causes her to become disfigured, a major plot point.

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!
