Constance M Burge says she was inspired to create ''Series/{Charmed}}'' partially off this movie; indeed Love Spit Love's CoverVersion of Music/TheSmiths' "How Soon Is Now?", which would become the theme song of ''Charmed'', was recorded for ''The Craft''.

* PlotHole: Bonnie wears baggy clothes to hide her scars. After she first starts treatment for them she is suddenly wearing less clothes but then in another scene the scars are back and when they finally disappear Bonnie walks into class wearing the same type of clothes she'd been wearing before and everyone is suddenly reacting to that.
** The occasion when she's wearing fewer clothes is when the four go on an outing to the countryside. Her scars are still partly visible, and it seems to be more because she's more comfortable to expose them among the rest of the coven than she is at school.
** Potentially played straight during the 'Stiff as a Board' scene where no scars are visible even in a skirt and short sleeves, but more likely a simple makeup goof than anything else.
