2. The Witches of Eastwick


Looking at this list, a lot of the most incredible films about witchcraft are adaptations from equally fabulous novels. John Updike's witches aren't exactly the same as the versions played (marvelously) by Cher, Susan Sarandon, and Michelle Pfeiffer, but even on screen, Alex, Jane, and Sukie are strong women. Yeah, they make a deal with the devil, but look at how they own their mistakes and flip the script on Daryl. This is witchcraft dependent on sisterhood and really shows the viewer what women are capable of when they band together in friendship – and no, I'm not just talking about the over-endowed voodoo doll.
