I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it has a pretty good reputation, I thought I might as well check it out. To be honest, I have never been a huge fan of Roald Dahl's work and I never really enjoyed the movies adapted from his books. I mean, some of them were pretty good but none of them really blew me away (except 'The Fantastic Mr Fox) and this feature was not an exc... read more

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.

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

Top 10 Greatest Witch Movies (10 movies items)

" This somewhat spooky family film is based on the book by beloved children's author Ronald Dahl. The witches in this film are terrifying to children, because their whole goal seems to be to rid the world of them (not by killing them, but by turning them into mice). A young boy learns of their plot when he stumbles into one of their gatherings at a hotel and must figure out how to stop them. This film really scared me as a child, although what disturbed me most was the portrayal of the witches/"

" Huston shows us beauty really is only skin deep, enduring horrendous prosthetics to transform into the Grand High Witch – warts and all. Wonder if it’s a comment on surface-level beauty in Hollywood?"

2012 Movie Diary - May (42 movies items)

"I know Roald Dahl hated this so much it killed him and I can see why and I am a huge lover of the book and the rest of his work, but I can't stop liking this film! I think Anjelica Huston is absolutely amazing (she used to scare the shit out of me)! And I also like Rowan Atkinson and Jane Horrocks in this too. But of course I hate the ending and the fact that "Luke" is randomly American... "
