Her er de skøre piger. Til pigerne, der af og til flyver ud af håndtaget. Till the girls scream loudly and deal with clean, unfiltered feelings. Til de piger, der altid bliver fortalt, at they are too much, do too much of a scene when people really tell you this is not enough. This goes out to all Nancy Downses in the world.
Håndværket er en af mine all-time foretrukne film, ikke specifikt forbeholdt Halloween sæson, men jo mere passende for det. In order to be fair, I want to see almost all the distant acts of witches, but the high school age group of girls who was the main focus of the film was particularly appealing to me. Manons beføjelser til side, de var ret normale piger. De havde normale navne-Rochelle, Bonnie, Sarah og Nancy – og havde helt normale gymnasieproblemer, ikke i modsætning til dem, du og jeg havde engang. Dubbede “Eastwick’s Tits” af deres jævnaldrende, de var så langt fra at være de søje børn, og ærligt var vi ikke alle? I would like to let them feel powerless to seemingly serious (or still be serious when you were teenager) forces like the resident class racist or the guy you liked who only ended up making your life hell, fandt magten i deres stavebøger og chants, indkalde noget større end dem selv.

Nancy var min absolutte favorit.
Hun var den sene 90’ers gothpige personificeret med sin korte, ultra-mørke bob, porcelænfundament, stærkt rynede øjne og mørk læbestift. A deep merlot would be considered her naked-she never went lighter than it-and the whole appearance was bound together with a glance that was strong enough to shake someone on the receiving end to their core. I remember happily sitting on the floor in my best friend’s room laying on liner and dark lipstick to be like Nancy when we lit candles and pretended to throw spells without completely burning the house.
Som teenage girls have a tendency to do, they gave her the reputation of the backs because for them it was a teenage girl who was comfortable with her own sexuality, strange and she became ashamed of it. She is proud of it, and out of the four girls she was the one who was unnoticed herself. Her hjemmeliv sucked and nightly fighting in her family trailer between her mother and stepdad was more frequent than yet, so it’s easy to understand why she had put on such a hard persona but when she loved she loved hard.
She found tilflugtssted i hendes coven, and when the group’s powers began to materialize, it was Nancy’s power that in some way triggered a heart attack for her violent stepfather who left her and her mother with a crazy amount of money. Mens de andre piger invoked the spirit to solve the immediate problems, she had a bigger goal in mind. Hun ønskede på påberåbe fuldstændig magt fra Manon.
Do you know how they say, at your best friends are those who care most? Nancy var den ven.
She was hard at Sarah when she became involved in Chris – after all, Nancy knew he could use girls and spread rumors about them as a firefighter – but when Sara came home in shock after trying to rape her, prepared Nancy sin egen plan at hævne sig.
“You do not exist. The only way you know how to treat women is to treat them like hearing when you hear and it will stop,” she shouts at him while he is living across the room. In one way or another he excuses, but she does not buy it and she uses her powers to start him out of the window until his death.

Of course, it’s too much for the newcomer Sarah, and she wants to leave the group. At reagere med hellfire was probably not the most appropriate answer, but it is understandable. She killed someone for her friend, and so does Nancy get back? She does not go without a fight and fights she did.
“You know, old people, if they warned her, they would kill her,” she said to Sarah after kicking in the bathroom where she hid.
Lastly, Nancy had to live in the utmost and achieve full strength, her demise. The power went to her head, and she sprang out. Hun mistede sine kræfter og hendes tanker, og den endelige scene viser et luftfoto af Nancy på hospitalet, fastgjort til sengen og hævder at hun flyver.
Mænd et øjeblik var hun dejlig.
