This film is responsible for a generation of girls from the 90s experimenting with witchcraft and forming their own covens in order to levitate each other during sleepover parties. The Craft (1996, dir. Andrew Fleming) is one of those films that is so 1990s that it almost works as a time travelling device back to […]

‘Back To You’
“This crazy world will keep on spinning—Clocks will keep on ticking ’till it’s time to watch it burn—Right from the very beginning—We’ve been celebrating past the point of no return—To the sounds that come when lonely planet’s—Gently falling in and out of time—But clouds of dust have broken into atoms—Brings a chill directly down my spine—Every legend I create—Every move I ever make—Every action and reaction in my life—Every moment I’m awake—Every chance I’ll ever take—Every dream and every sparkle in my eye—Every second of my waking hours—And everything I ever say or do—Beats me with or what’s within my powers—Directly home and always back to you—Always back to you—Back to you—Friends of young and often talking—Tripping out and walking—Roads that never seem to end—Like stars that sparkle in the morning—Come without a warning—Miracles are heaven-sent—From way up high like rain or even rockets—Exploding in a light…
