Sarah has always been different. So as the new girl at St. Benedict's Academy, she immediately falls in with the high school outsiders. But these girls won't settle for being powerless misfits. They have discovered The Craft, and they are going to use it.

Sarah Bailey (Robin Tunney) is the new kid in town, but even under the best of circumstances she has never been accepted by the popular crowd. At her new school, she falls in with a trio of other female misfits (Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, and Rachel True) who, it so happens, are trying to learn witchcraft and form their own little coven. When Sarah joins them to make it a quartet, they slowly develop multifold preternatural powers and learn how to focus and use them. With such abilities literally at their fingertips, it's not too long until the little coven, initially formed for self-protection and companionship, becomes an instrument for personal gain and revenge. Sarah soon realizes that one of her friends is evil to the core, and fearful of what THAT one may do with the group's newfound powers, she decides it's best to resign from the coven and thereby weaken the magic abilities of the others. But the coven has different plans, particularly regarding Sarah....
The sleeper hit THE CRAFT (1996) could've easily been played for camp, but it is instead a story of modern urban witchcraft that is both literate and emotionally powerful. The success of the film is due to Peter Filardi and Andrew Fleming's tight, well-written script, excellent direction from Fleming, and outstanding acting from principals Tunney, Balk, Campbell, and True. The supernatural elements of the story are handled carefully and earnestly, and witchcraft or the belief in it is never ridiculed or treated derisively. This keeps the tone of the film somewhat dark and edgy, which in turn creates an uneasy, spooky atmosphere that cues the audience to the fact that this is a serious horror film.

With the incredible success of the television smash hit "Charmed" it seems only fair to remind people of that show's absolute beginning. It was a 1996 film entitled "The Craft" starring Neve Campbell(of "Scream" fame), Rachel True, an utterly gorgeous Robin Tunney in the lead role, and a fantastic casting choice of Fairuza Balk as a witch who eventually embraces the darkside of her art. This film was a pleasant surprise with some good acting, a plausible yet magical storyline which focuses almost entirely on the lives of four outsiders who find each other through "The Craft" of illusion and glamour. This isn't a scary film at all, unless you dislike snakes, bugs, worms, rats, etc. For that matter, a story like this, in retrospect, is an excellent idea for a television program. It works better in such a medium, but for the most part, it works here as well. This film is an essential pick-up for fans of the show "Charmed" and for anyone who celebrates "Girl Power." (pun intended) This is an enjoyable yarn that is, thanks to "Charmed," destined for Cult film status.

In 1996, with a plethora of teen horror movies coming out to theaters, one supernatural film that stood out was "The Craft".

The film was directed by Andrew Fleming ("Grosse Pointe", "Paranormal Girl", "Dick") and featured a story written by Peter Filardi ("Flatliners", "Salem's Lot"). Joining the two are composer Grame Revell ("Pineapple Express", "The Ruins", "The Condemned", "Eleventh Hour") and cinematographer Alexander Gruszynski ("The In-Laws", "Nancy Drew" and "Madea Goes to Jail").

VIDEO & AUDIO:

"The Craft" is presented in 1080p High Definition (1:85:1). For a film that was released in 1996, "The Craft" actually looks good for being nearly 13-years-old. The film is not exactly vibrant nor do you see tons of detail but the film does manage to retain the film's grain and blacks are nice and deep. If anything, outdoor scenes manages to look nice, colorful and bright but for the most part, it's a good transfer but nothing that would be scene as reference or spectacular.

As for audio, this is where things get interesting. "The Craft" is one of the few Blu-ray releases in 2009 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment to utilize an a 5.1 DTS-HD MA lossless track instead of DolbyTrue HD. The film gives a choice of English, French and Portuguese lossless tracks but what I was truly impressed by is how immersive the soundtrack for this film was.

So far, Sony has done a good job of bringing out the audio track for 90's films this year such as "Air Force One" and now, the same can be said with "The Craft". From lighting, to rain, ambient noises, conversations in the background and crickets, you hear it utilized quite nicely through the surround channels.

The sound effects really are utilized through the surround channels.

After not seeing The Craft for a while, I'd completely forgotten how much I loved the movie. Not because I'm into the actual craft, or because I'm a major die hard fan of anyone in the movie. It's because The Craft is a genuinely creepy atmospheric film with a side of witty humour and truthful underlying messages.
Sarah (Robin Tunney) is the new girl at school. Always never being able to fit in, she instantly falls into a group of misfit girls: Nancy (Fairuza Balk), Bonnie (Neve Campbell), and Rochele (Rachel True). All four girls have an interest in witchcraft, and they further their interests by having a complete circle, and finding a power within them. While the power in Sarah is a true power, Nancy - dubbed as the leader of the group - takes the power and abuses it. Using it to harm people, and to get her way. When a certain thing goes wrong, Sarah wants out of the circle, but the others will not have it. Now Sarah must believe in her power to stop Nancy and co. from taking her life.
Unfortunately, The Craft came out right before the success of teen horror that started with Scream (Also starring Neve Campbell and Skeet Ulrich). But it still grossed a good amount in theatres, and deserves what it made, and more. Robin Tunney is great as our lead. Her subtle emotions and knack of sarcasm made her character likable. Neve Campbell's character was the less seen, but she made it memorable. Rachel True brought a lot of charm and wit to the movie. Now, Fairuza Balk . . . that girl took her part and played it to the full extent. You'd truly think she was as crazy as her character had become, it looked so real. Very creepy and downright scary. Kudos to the Fairuza Balk. Skeet Ulrich and Christine Taylor are the victims here, and both play their supporting parts very good.

The Craft SEQUEL green light
will most likely be garbage. straight to video means very little time, money, effort or talent went into it. just wanted to capitalize on the popularity of the first one.
