The Craft


Goth kids have never had pop culture cater to them in the way it did back in the 90s.  With music, The Cure’s Wish and Wild Mood Swings were “must-haves”, Marilyn Manson came forth as the self-proclaimed Antichrist, and Nine Inch Nails was teaching teens to be Broken in their Pretty Little Hate Machine while falling through The Downward Spiral.  Movies were just as wonderful, with The Crow, Interview with a Vampire, Natural Born Killers, even Spawn (ok, that one wasn’t all that wonderful but, man, that soundtrack) to name but a few.  During these glory days of black velvet and clove cigarettes, there was one movie to which these wonderful teenage goth fashionistas could not only relate, but that actually connected with them in a way unlike any movie before.  That movie was 1996’s The Craft.  Those glory days are long gone but that hasn’t stopped Hollywood from mining that wonderful time to milk it for more cash. While The Crow reboot continues to backslide into (hopefully) nothingness, The Craft reboot is still moving full steam ahead. That’s the bad news. The good news?  Turns out, that reboot is actually more of a sequel than a reimagining of the film and according to an interview with HitFix, it seems that producer Douglas Wick may be on the right track.
