Though the song "How Soon is Now" was originally perfomed by The Smiths, Love Spit Love did the cover for the Soundtrack. The Love Spit Love cover of "How Soon is Now" was also the theme song for the WB show Charmed (1998). Charmed, a popular TV show which ran for 8 seasons (1998-2006), is also about witches. 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.

A good fantasy movie that capitalizes on the neopaganism boom.
One of the complaints brought against this movie by practicing wiccans is that it gives the false impression that wiccans engage in "bad" magic -- putting curses and spells on one's enemies. I would like to remind any peeved wiccans who might read this that the biggest lie this movie tells about them isn't that they cast spells, but that their spells actually work.
But that's the very lie we expect fantasy films to tell us. We demand it, in fact. This one, at least, does a very nice job of conveying the longing for power that motivates some to practice wicca and other forms of "magick." It's also fun and entertaining, and lovely to look at in places. The famous butterfly scene, in particular, will take your breath away. Over-all, this was a much better movie than it's been given credit for being.
