A tweeny horror film is actually sort of a rare thing, and truly this one is alright but nothing fantastic. A bunch of young girls at a Catholic school form a coven and cast spells on other girls. Thing is, they are a group of young girls and internal fights may be the end of them. Who is the most powerful? Who will pay in the end? It's really very tame and Hollywoodized, it's not scary or bloody either. As just a plain thriller comedy it's fine, easy to watch when I was a teen myself, but I certainly am uninterested at this age. Still the cast is fun to watch (particularly Faruza) and it's a simple little romp in the supernatural.
