You can try to escape “The Craft”, but it just won’t let go. That infamous witchy cult-classic film debuted 13 years ago, but the stars still find themselves drawn back into its orbit. Fairuza Balk, who was already interested in Witchcraft and Paganism, owned Panpipes Magickal Marketplace in California for six years, Robin Tunney’s new show “The Mentalist” had an especially awful Witch-themed episode this year, and now Neve Campbell will be playing a Witch again in the upcoming 21st season of the animated comedy “The Simpsons”.
Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Anne Hathaway, Jackie Mason, Neve Campbell and the late Eartha Kitt are among the guest voices on the upcoming 21st season of THE SIMPSONS airing Sundays (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX … Neve Campbell plays “Cassandra,” a Wiccan accused of blinding the town with a spell (a la “The Craft”) in “Rednecks and Broomsticks.”
Makes you wonder if Rachel True has been up to anything occult-ish lately. I would say that this is all leading up to a big Craft reunion, but the planned direct-to-DVD sequel (which wasn’t to feature any of the original stars) is dead in the water. Still, if they can make a “The Witches of Eastwick” television series (called simply “Eastwick”) 22 years after the original film, you never know when “The Craft” will come back.
The title of this post is, of course, from Wicca-curious Lisa Simpson, in “The Simpsons” episode “Catch ’em If You Can”.
