Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Fleming's film begins promisingly as a black comedy a la Heathers, but then quickly succumbs to its machinery of special effects; this is yet another bad picture in a long list of Hollywood flops about witchcraft."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"The 1970s-style special effects do little to distract us from an uneven script, direction and performances. Yet there's enough here for us to hope it'll come together."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"Imagine "The Lost Boys," only they're girls instead of boys ... and they're witches instead of vampires."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Will appeal to fantasy and horror buffs alike."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Supernatural fun with attitude."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,

‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Campy teen witch thriller more violent than fun."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"Fairuza Balk completes the cycle from Dorothy Gale to wicked witch; too bad the film can't keep up with her."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
