Enrolling in a local Catholic school, she inadvertently attracts the attention of three of the school's outcasts: Nancy, Bonnie and Rochelle, who also happen to be witches.Each of the three suffers from a personal problem of some kind: Nancy lives in a trailer with her mother and abusive stepfather, Rochelle suffers racist harassment by the school's Alpha Bitch, and Bonnie has severe burn scars all over her body.The four decide to use their powers for personal gain, casting vengeful spells against those that wronged them.The film is notable for hiring an actual Wiccan as a script consultant and another one to play Nancy. But since Wicca is a pretty mundane religion in real life, most of their suggestions were ignored in the name of Artistic License.See also The Covenant, which is essentially the same premise but with lead guys instead.
