The Craft

5 pretzels.

Grab your three best birches; it’s time to call the corners.

I love everything about this movie. It is the perfect angsty teenage witch movie. And it has a killer cast. Skeet Ulrich, always greasy, portrays Chris beautifully. Neve Campbell, Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk. It literally could not get better.

Let’ pretend you haven’t seen this movie 1000 times. Sarah (Robin Tunney {swoon}) has just transferred to a new school. Oh, and also she’s telekinetic. She is quickly befriended by Rochelle (Rachel True), Bonnie (Neve Campbell), and the leader of their little trio, Nancy (Fairuza Balk). They’re the outcasts. The weirdos. So, of course, they befriend one another.

Sarah soon discovers that the trio is into witchcraft. She reluctantly goes along with it, but then reveals that she herself has powers. Now that the threesome is a foursome, they can call the corners. This is actually why I’ve never successfully called the corners, I only have, like, one friend. That’s neither here nor there. With their powers combined, they are successful. So, they each head home and use their witchy, nose twitchy powers to clean the house and make awesome dinners. No, no they don’t. They use it for self gain. They’re teenagers, though, so I get it. The spells eventually backfire. Horribly. People die, others go bald, it’s a mess up in here.

We also get to learn a little bit about revenge and magic. The moral of the story is, don’t be terrible. Whether you’re using witchcraft or not. See, Chris wasn’t a witch, but he was pretty terrible. And he gets his in the end. Does he deserve it? Probably not. Maybe just a stern talking to or to be held accountable for his actions, but that’s what happens when you mess with an angry witch. You get dead. Also, this scene is dope. I have always wanted to aggressively levitate.

Looking for some last minute Halloween ideas? Consider Nancy. All you need is black clothing, eyeliner, lipstick, and a killer sneer. That’s it. Or, if you’re more into white magic – which we all should be – consider Sarah.

All you need is the face of an angel and mile long stare.

So, whether you’re heading out for a little trick or treating or kicking it at home, I hope you have a happy (and your preferred level of spooky) Halloween.

Okay, byeeeeeeeee.
