In the grand tradition of young nubile high schoolers getting gothic and witchy a la Little Witches and The Craft comes The Witch Files, directed by Kyle Rankin.

While spending a dull detention together, an unlikely gathering of teenage girls discovers one of their group may possess supernatural powers. Intrigued, they follow her into the local woods, where they harness the ambient energy of witches who were persecuted there hundreds of years ago. Realizing they now have the ability to make every desire a reality, the girls form a coven and soon have the entire school under their control. But, not surprisingly, their newfound power comes at a deadly cost…

Mixing a bit of humor with an appropriate amount of teen drama (along with witchraft, natch), The Witch Files stars Paget Brewster (TV’s Criminal Minds), Holly Taylor (TV’s The Americans) and Greg Finley (The Secret Life of an American Teenager).

DVD bonuses include a commentary by director Rankin and a making-of-featurette.
