Honestly, I'm not a big fan of Roald Dhal's work and I don't really enjoy the movie adapted from his books. This feature is no exception. It's not bad at all and there are loads of good things in it but I didn't think the story was really entertaining whatsoever. Still, it is worth a look especially if you enjoy Roald Dhal's books more than I do.

Review of The Witches

“Many children have grown up reading the work of Roald Dahl, and I was no exception. To this day, The Witches remains my favorite book by the prolific children's author, being more frightening, creepy, and wickedly twisted than any book I had read at the time. The movie manages to convey these traits of the book (sometimes better, sometimes worse), but in a manner that could potentially traumatize younger children. In other words, The Witches doesn't hold back on being as dark as it needs to be- that is, until the unfortunate twist at the end that Dahl himself spoke publicly against.

As explained in the film, witches appear to be normal, and harmless-looking woman, but that's what makes them so hard to spot. Witches hate children, and will do anything to get rid of them. Few ” read more
