"The Craft: Legacy" is Blumhouse's continuation of the cult hit "The Craft." An eclectic foursome of aspiring teenage witches gets more than they bargained for as they lean into their newfound powers. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the featurettes "Franchise Legacy" (HD 02:27) and "Powerful Story, Magical Director" (HD 03:11), four alternate scenes with an introduction from Director Zoe Lister-Jones (HD 11:39), upfront previews and a Movies Anywhere digital code.

The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally using the Arri Alexa Mini, Arri Alexa XT Plus and Panavision camera systems and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. Picture quality is excellent with a vividly warm and rich color palette. Hues are natural throughout with accurate fleshtones, Contrast is ls excellent with natural black levels and revealing shadow delineation. Bright levels appear naturally lit, both interiors and exteriors. Dynamic contrasts are frequent. Resolution is revealing of fine detail in facial features, clothing and object texture. This is a quite colorful visual experience that is compelling. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dynamic sounding with segments from quiet moments to boisterous segments. Atmospherics are realistic as well as sound effects, which are strong at times. Dialogue is clear and generally well integrated during interior scenes. The music is nicely supportive, including a busy party scene. The music is the strongest surround element, which effectively creates a holosonic® dimensional experience. This is a soundtrack with excellent fidelity and segments of pleasant surround dynamics. (Gary Reber)
