The film focuses on four teenage girls who practice witchcraft for their own individual personal gain, leading to disastrous results for some of the girls. “The Craft” is often considered a sleeper hit. “The Craft” wasn’t a “big box office hit” per se in terms achieving global box office numbers, but it did manage to make back its budget plus a profit (therefore becoming a success), and show longevity during its release period. On a budget of around $15 million, it grossed over $55 million worldwide. Ever since its release, it has gained a cult following, with the film constantly being shown during the month of October in the spirit of Halloween.
