Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

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. The attractive cast of stars-to-be (including Scream's Neve Campbell) makes skilful use of 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.
