Four girls at a high school practice witchcraft and use sorcery for their own means, but soon find out the negative repercussions of using such magic.
The film predates the basis for a TV show called Charmed and would probably appeal most to fans of that programme and teenage girls in general.
For everyone else it's rather tedious and unoriginal. Still, it was a surprise hit in 1996 and has gone on to have a cult following. I just have to confess that it just wasn't for me.
