The Craft 2 is coming our way, 20 years after the original film was released... So where are the witchy foursome now?


The Craft, 1996

The vampy school uniforms. The over the knee socks. The kickin’ soundtrack. Skeet Ulrich. Wasn’t The Craft – with it’s feminist leanings and witchy tomfoolery – just the movie to channel 90s teen post-grunge angst?

And now fans of the cult film can give praise to Manon, because The Craft 2 is happening!

Responding to rumours that the 1996 movie about a group of witchcraft-obsessed teens was being remade, producer Douglas Wick revealed: ‘We wouldn’t so much call it a remake as a ’20 years later’.’


‘There will be callbacks to the original movie, so you will see there is a connection between what happened in the days of The Craft, and how these young women come across this magic many years later,’ Wick expanded.

And whilst there’s no word yet whether any of the original cast – including Robin Tunney and Neve Campbell – are on board (come on girls – we invoke thee!), that hasn’t stopped us getting VERY excited.

Despite the largely sinister undertones (murders, snakes, lunatic asylums), The Craftwas perfect silver screen fodder for any teenage girl exploring a slight ‘I hate the world and my parents’ goth phase.

It allowed us to flirt with really dark lipstick, beaded chokers and plum semi-permanent hair colour without having to fully commit to listening to Norwegian Death Metal. Suddenly, a nose/belly button/tongue piercing was the height of fash’wan, and it didn’t matter that it a) got infected and b) you were grounded indefinitely once mum found out.

Everyone had a favourite Wiccan teen in this band of magical and pre-menstrual misfits. Who was yours? Let’s see what the coven are up to these days – and what they look like…
