The Witches Reviews
It's quite a flick for it's time and it was pretty darn hilarious to see all the scenes that use to scare me look like a joke to me now. I still like this story and it was indeed a memorable one from childhood.
I like scarier films now but this is still a classic and I guess it's one for the younger audiences. Funny, darkly and certainly an entertainer!
The film is shot very realistically, it feels really grounded.... It isn't until the amazing work of Jim Henson's company does the dark magic of the film come alive. Let us also not forget this movie is about murdering children and it handles a child's kidnapping way too realistically for comfort.
Anyone who grew up with this film will always look for women with purple eyes.
Perhaps the best Roald Dahl film ever. Scary for kids. This is exactly what PG horror films SHOULD be. And... MR. BEAN IS THE HOTEL OWNER!!!
