In 1996, “The Craft” was released in theaters and a new standard for movies about witchcraft was established. This was in part due to the technical advice of Pat Devin, an Elder and the first officer of the Southern California local council of C.O.G. (Covenant of the Goddess) established in California in 1975, an incorporated, religious, non-profit organization.
[ In 1996, there were approximately 250,000 Wiccans in the United States. ] While much of the technically correct information in the movie was a fresh relief for many of us, Hollywood also had filled the movie with the normal amount of special effects. You know, the kind that have nothing whatsoever to do with “real magick.” In the past few years, large numbers of people after seeing “The Craft” turned towards Wicca with the impression that the movie was a real reflection of what they could learn. This misconception was further enforced by a
number of new Television shows and more Hollywood movies. Never had a little bit of truth created so much confusion. ~ Parker Torrence
