The Craft: Legacy is a 2020 horror film. It is a sequel/soft reboot of the 1996 film The Craft.

Plot

A group of high school students form a coven of witches.

Why It Sucks

  1. Like Black Christmas (2019), the movie tries really hard to be "woke", particularly in the movie's final act:
    • The characters frequently drop SJW buzzwords.
    • The main villain of the movie is an unsubtle misogynist who murders a bisexual boy for being "weak". Beyond that, he has no real depth.
    • There's a rather bizarre scene where the girls use their magic on a bully, and he suddenly becomes "woke".
  2. There's a lot of plot points that appear to be ripped from the 2019 Black Christmas film.
  3. Unlike the original movie, the characters here are all bland and have no real development. We never really know any of their backstory, so we can't really care about them.
  4. Also unlike the original movie, there's not much magic used.
  5. The movie feels really rushed:
    • There are loads of plot holes and things that are just never really explained.
    • A number of subplots are brought up and then never resolved.
  6. For a horror movie, there's not much scary, and it feels more like a teen drama.
  7. Cheap and unconvincing special effects.
  8. Overall, the movie just lacks the tone and cult charm of the original film.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. Fairuza Balk makes a cameo at the end playing Nancy from the original film.
