Synopsis

Storyline:
A coven of young women with incredible powers and difficult pasts discovers that they are able to make their every wish come true. Things, however, take a dangerous turn when they discover that their newly-found abilities come with a price and that they may not be as in control as they think.
User Reviews: Being of an older generation, I realize that this movie was not geared for my demographic and may appeal more to younger viewers. But since there are not a lot of reviews as I write this, I’ll try and give my opinion.

Five teens from a high school in Maine band together and form a coven on a site where centuries before suspected witches may have been pursued and murdered by the townspeople. By using chants and the power of group thoughts, they begin to realize these thoughts can be transferred into actually making their wishes become reality.

At first, it’s a rather harmless use of their new powers, but as things progress they begin to realize there will be a steep price to pay for their actions. Plus, it will eventually become clear that there’s a more sinister force at work among the five teens, one that will have to be fought for their own survival.

I thought, at times, this fantasy horror film had some surprising moments where it didn’t take a path you would expect. Also, the dialogue and characters were more interesting than I anticipated.

However, overall, I just found this B-movie to be rather hokey and, as mentioned earlier, may appeal more to a much younger crowd. Thus, not awful, but not my cup of tea.
