Little Witches is a 1996 horror film directed by Jane Simpson and written by Brian DiMuccio and Dino Vindeni. It has a similar plot to The Craft, released in the same year; though Little Witches had a much smaller budget.
Six misfit girls at a boarding Catholic high school become mixed-up with occult and witchcraft after a Satanic temple is discovered underneath the local church. They also discover an ancient book which contains a black magic spell that conjures a demon from the pits of hell. Jamie takes charge of the group and endeavors to summon the demon, using the book. The spell includes making a human sacrifice. However, Faith has a change of heart and attempts to stop them from completing their ritual.
