13 new bands who totally look like they’re in ‘The Craft’

The '90s teen witch look is big for 2017, and we reckon all of these up and coming artists have drawn heavily from cult 1996 movie 'The Craft'. Grab your spellbooks and black lace chokers and join them.

The Craft (1996)

This cult horror movie is like Mean Girls with magic spells: it follows a clique of high schoolers who discover the secrets of witchcraft but don't always use them wisely. Neve Campbell shines as Bonnie, a coven member with low self-esteem, but it's '90s teen flick favourite Faruiza Balk who steals the show, playing an unhinged teen witch called Nancy.
