#99: The Craft
Episode Description: This week, we kick off our annual Month of Horrors Extravaganza by taking on 1996’s teen thriller The Craft, directed by Andrew Fleming. Four high school girls get witchy and discover that with great power comes great responsibility…or something. Honestly, the messaging here is a little muddled, and what seems on the surface like a tale of female empowerment becomes complicated and confused upon a closer look.
Summer Blockbuster!?! is a podcast featuring InRO Editor-in-Chief Luke Gorham and Bradley University film professor Steve Warner. The duo look to tackle films each episode which received wide releases during the competitive summer movie season, but which had no sensible reason for such a rollout. And sometimes they cheat and don’t abide by this framework at all. A new episode will be posted each Friday from the beginning of May until the end of October, moving to a bi-weekly posting schedule after.
