Plot: 4 teenage witches practice their craft amid social and personal problems


Back when I was a angsty teenager with acne and my own bullies, there was this movie to make me wish I had special powers.  Oooo, what I could have done with that.  I swear I wouldn’t have been a Nancy.  Moving on.

Good girl, Sarah (Tunney) moves to a new town and makes friends with 3 witches, Nancy (Bulk), Bonnie (Campbell) and Rochelle (True).  For some reason, they are really a lot stronger together and they start to go about fixing their personal and social lives with their magics.  I was always particularly a fan of Bonnie at first.  I felt her pain.  Living with those scars must have been unbearable, but then the minute she gets rid of them she turns into a huge slut, so I stopped feeling sorry for her.


Anywho, the 3 girls end up following the lead of Nancy, who eventually gets just too crazy for Sarah, or anyone reasonable to deal with.  What’s sad is that Bonnie and Rochelle turn on Sarah so quickly.  I mean, Nancy’s crazy.  She’s doing her own thing all the time.  But Bonnie and Rochelle are just nasty followers who can’t think for themselves.  I’m glad they all get what’s coming to them.

It’s not much of a horror movie, although all the cockroaches do bother DJ.

DJ’s score: 65.  My score: 70.


“I bind you Nancy from doing harm – harm against yourself and harm against other people.”
