AJ’s 31 Days of Horror Movies: ‘The Craft’
This movie is so late-90s-tastic; it'll put a creepy spin on your high school years.
There are two kinds of people in world - the Hocus Pocus crowd, and The Craft crowd. I'm part of the latter and damn proud of it.
High school for me was 1997-2001, so this movie brought out my early inner-curiosity about scary movies.
The Craft is a 1996 film about a group of high school girls in Los Angeles who are clearly part of the outcast crowd. They recruit a new student into their group, who clearly has some kind of "gift." The girls then explore witchcraft and, as you can imagine, it backfires.
The music. The fashion. The make-up. The chokers. It's EVERYTHING and, even though it's 23 years old, it still holds up as a cult classic.
