Our Score
In this engaging teen version of The Witches of Eastwick, four schoolfriends discover that sorcery helps when it comes to relationship problems and dealing with their various physical and emotional worries - until one of them seeks real power, that is. The attractive cast of stars-to-be (including Scream's Neve Campbell and Skeet Ulrich) makes skilful use of plausible characters and a smart script that puts a sinister spin on female bonding. The glossy style and neat visual effects combine with a few genuinely creepy moments to make this above-average genre fare, though the full-on sorcery showdown belongs in another movie.

Summary

A new girl who finds it difficult to fit in at school befriends three goth misfits, who discover they can perform magic and form a secret coven. They initially use their powers for self-improvement, but eventually start to turn against their classmates, driving the ringleader insane as her lust for power takes over. Horror, starring Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, Rachel True and Skeet Ulrich.
