Witchcraft in Popular Entertainment: The Craft, Buffy and Beyond
The Craft revolutionized the media's approach to teenagers, reshaped the media's imagery of good and evil, and redefined the public's idea of modern Witchcraft. The movie firmly established modern Witchcraft's new image in the public mind: dangerous, but exciting -- and above all, real. Buffy is second only to The Craft as a milestone in the ongoing spiritual devolution of American culture. This is Chapter 4 of Witchcraft Goes Mainstream, by Brooks Alexander.
