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.

"Talk about perfect casting, Anjelica Huston aces the role of Eva Ernst/The Grand High Witch, not to mention the creature effects done by Jim Henson's Creature Shop."

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
