Witches and ghosts and demons, oh my!

I just love me some rebellious teenage girls turning to witchcraft to work out their angst. Imagine The Craft girls being sent away to a Catholic reform school and becoming possessed, and you have 5ive Girls. Okay, you’d actually have 4 girls, but you know what I mean.

These five girls are the only students in the entire creepy building with a third floor that’s off limits. And they are locked in by their bitch of a headmistress. And they have one teacher—a priest played by Ron Perlman.

Go to Hellboy! I mean…girl!

5ive Girls may not be The Craft, but it blows away Little Witches, which I blog about here, and would make a perfect double feature with The Woods, which I cover here.

There are pentagrams. There’s a zombie-like ghost girl. Supernatural goings-on. Each girl has a special psychic power. One of the girls is a lesbian (that’s not her special power) and her character rules.

She’ll slit a bitch.

There’s girl-on-girl kissing and headmistress-on-girl spanking.

The finale is definitely a pay-off because the film doesn’t feel like it’s going to ever go that far. Only the very final moment is a bit odd, sort of explaining all in the blink of an eye with little fanfare. Kind of jarring but also rather snarky in a fun way.
