The Craft

Trivia: At one point in time in the early 2000's when direct-to-DVD sequels were quite popular, a direct-to-DVD sequel focusing exclusively on Fairuza Balk Nancy was considered, but it was never made.

Trivia: Something fun (but kind of creepy) to notice. When Rochelle is in the locker room standing next to the full length mirror, watch her reflection as she quickly turns to the left. Her reflection turns the same way, not the opposite as a normal reflection would.

Trivia: The film features the Love Spit Love cover of the song "How Soon is Now." The very next year, the series "Charmed" premiered, which used the exact same cover of the song as its theme song. The series "Charmed" is also about a group of young witches. (And in fact, several cast and crew members of "The Craft" have alleged that the series "Charmed" was a complete rip-off their movie, and the fact it used the same song is further proof of that).

TedStixon

Trivia: Star Fairuza Balk used to visit an occult store to research her role in the film. She fell in love with the store and ended up purchasing it from the owners (who were retiring) during production. (She subsequently sold the store six years later.) This ended up making rumors spiral out of control that she was actually a practicing witch in real life, but she has since clarified that the rumors were not true. She merely finds the subject fascinating.

Trivia: The movie was made with the intention of being aimed towards teenagers and being rated PG-13. However, the ratings board took a rather puritanical approach and slapped it with an R rating due to all of the occult elements. Because the film was so steeped in witchcraft, the director was unable to make any cuts to get the lower rating he and the studio desired.

Trivia: Some strange things happened on set during production. Particularly during the beach ritual scene - every time they'd start filming the scene, the tide would go crazy... and then immediately settle down when the director called "Cut!" A flock of bats also mysteriously appeared and hovered over set. Finally, when Nancy screamed the line "Manon, fill me!", all the power on set went out.

Continuity mistake: When Sarah confronts Chris at school, as she pushes the other guy aside, Chris is closing the door to his locker. In the next shot, the door is completely open, but in the following shot, it's almost closed before Chris pushes it shut. (00:21:05)

Rochelle: All these songs are by Connie Francis.
Grace: Yeah, isn't that great? Since I was a little girl all I've wanted in life was a jukebox that played nothing but Connie Francis records.
Bonnie: That's great.
Rochelle: Who's Connie Francis?
Grace: Who's Connie Francis? Honey, listen and learn! Connie Francis.
