‘The Craft’ Casts a Spell on Complicated Family Dynamics [The Lady Killers Podcast]

“Now is the time. This is the hour. Ours is the magic. Ours is the power.”

As the nights grow longer and the snow begins to fall, we begin to insulate ourselves from the outside world and spend more time with our nearest and dearest. While comforting for others, this time of year can also bring with it the horrors of complicated family dynamics. For every turkey-loving Thanksgiving stan who thrives on big family reunions, there’s another lost and lonely soul looking for a friendly face. Many of us find comfort in spending time with a chosen family of trusted friends, fellow misfits we know will accept us no matter what. But even these bonds can bend. Sometimes they break. While many horror films have tackled complicated family dynamics, the witches of Andrew Fleming’s teen witch classic The Craft stand out from the crowd. This iconic film serves up authentic witchcraft and a coven of relatable killer witches decked out in ’90s fashion perfection.

The Lady Killers honor these witchy women with a Thanksgiving episode celebrating their killer style, daring individuality, and impressive legacy. Join Jenn AdamsSammie KuykendallMae Shults, and Rocco T. Thompson as they take a little field trip to call the corners, find their fourth, and revel in the witchy empowerment. From iconic quotes and magical mentors to a pre-Scream Neve Campbell and Skeet Ulrich, they’ll share their feelings about this pivotal film while dissecting some of the pieces that haven’t aged well. The conversation takes a more serious turn as they ponder the finer points of love spells, Nancy’s problematic relationship with Manon, and the power dynamics of this complicated coven. Is The Craft an empowering example of feminist filmmaking or a parable about the dangers of giving power to teenage girls? They’ll discuss all this and more while contemplating whether Nancy is a true villain or a misunderstood girl from the wrong side of the tracks.

Just remember to look out for those weirdos! Stream the episode below or subscribe now via Apple Podcasts and Spotify for future episodes that drop every Thursday. Next up? We’re keepin’ things witchy by joining the coven within The Craft.
