THE CRAFT: LEGACY (Cert 15, 90 mins, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Horror/Fantasy/Romance, available now on Amazon Prime Video/BT TV Store/iTunes/Sky Store/TalkTalk TV Store and other download and streaming services, available from March 8 on DVD £19.99/Blu-ray £24.99)

NEW Jersey therapist Helen Schechner (Michelle Monaghan) enjoys a whirlwind romance with motivational speaker Adam Harrison (David Duchovny), who travels around the world sharing his thoughts on masculinity and power.

After a brief courtship, Helen moves into Adam's home with her teenage daughter Lily (Cailee Spaeny) and his three sons Abe (Julian Grey), Isaiah (Donald MacLean Jr) and Jacob (Charles Vandervaart).

The transition is particularly difficult for Lily, who is bullied on her first day by jock Timmy Andrews (Nicholas Galitzine).

Three classmates, Frankie (Gideon Adlon), Lourdes (Zoey Luna) and Tabby (Lovie Simone), come to Lily's aid and they welcome her as the fourth member of their coven of teenage witches.

Lily develops extraordinary powers, which she can bind with other members of the coven to exact revenge.

Every action has a consequence.

BOMBAY ROSE (Cert 12, 93 mins, streaming from March 8 exclusively on Netflix, Animation/Drama/Romance)

BASED on true events, writer-director Gitanjali Rao's debut feature made history as the first Indian animated film to open International Critics Week at Venice Film Festival.

Meticulously hand-painted frame by frame over a period of six years, Bombay Rose entwines three stories in the unforgiving slums of Mumbai.

Hindu club dancer Kamala (Cyli Khare) escapes from the iron grip of an arranged marriage to live in the slums with her father and little sister.

While the younger sibling seeks comfort in the company of her English teacher Mrs De Souza (Amardeep Jha), who was once a revered Bollywood star, Kamala crosses paths with resourceful Samil (Amit Deondi).

He has fled bloodshed in Kashmir and seeks a better life in Mumbai.

The harsh reality of impossible love clashes with dreamy fantasies projected onto cinema screens as Kamala and Samil do whatever it takes to survive.
