Just about every supernatural genre has been made into a movie or TV show in recent years. We've had vampires (Twilight, Vampire Diaries), werewolves (Hemlock Grove and Teen Wolf, obvs), ghosts (Paranormal Activity), and aliens (The Host and, arguably, Spring Breakers). But it's been awhile since the spotlight was solely focused on witches frolicking in our movie magic midst, that is unless you include the now defunct TV series The Secret Circle (RIP), which went poof in the night practically overnight. Sure, we're huge Bonnie Bennett fans, so all due props to Kat Graham's role on Vampire Diaries, but I want to turn your attention to the campy, beloved, choker-laden, creepy coven flick, The Craft. Not only does it defy all other cinematic witchery (Hocus Pocus, anyone?) and TV show copycats like Charmed, it takes your average teens-with-powers story and twists it into a riot-grrrl-infused parable of good vs evil. Did I mention it's also full of style sorcery? I'm assuming you're conjuring images of black lipstick, mesh gloves, and the entire contents of Hot Topic pooling around your ankles in a Manic Panic-infused slurry of striped purple angst. Fear not, there's a humble dose of 1990s mini skirt and thigh-high power in these parts, but just the right sprinkle of weirdo fairy dust, too.
