Synopsis:
From 'Snow White' and the 'Seven Dwarfs' to 'The Wizard of Oz', many classic tales through the centuries wouldn't be half as exciting without the devious doings of a witch. Now add another to the venerable tradition of stories that deliver family fun every witch way, a collaboration combining the effects wizardry of executive producer Jim Henson and the imagination of Willy Wonka creator Roald Dahl. Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston won the Los Angeles and National Society of Film Critics Best Actress Awards for her marvelous work as the Grand High Witch in this enchanting fable directed by Nicolas Roeg.
Jasen Fisher plays Luke, the nine-year-old who must foil the plans of a society of witches to turn the world's children into mice. It won't be easy: they've already transformed him into one! But some big bad witches may be no match for the resourcefulness of a single tiny rodent.

Piffle - The Witches review by VG

Spoiler Alert
04/02/2020

A lame, garish mess of clumsy wide angles, gurning performances and zero tension that fails failure both as a children’s horror and as a slapstick comedy.
