Movie Info

Jill Murphy's children's story The Worst Witch is given satisfactory treatment in this amiable film fantasy. The scene is a school for witches, where the head sorceresses offer a liberal black-arts curriculum. Problems occur when one of the students turns out to be too good for her own good. And, as everybody knows, the best people make the worst witches. Veterans Diana Rigg and Charlotte Rae generously share screen time with such engaging comparative newcomers as Fairuza Balk. The 70-minute Worst Witch is ideal TV fare for the Halloween season.

Audience Reviews for The Worst Witch

  • Feb 15, 2013
    I really wanted to like this movie, but it was just so simplistic that I started to wonder why they had the characters be witches. I suppose it was just because it was a TV movie and they wanted a movie for kids to watch on Halloween that had a good lesson in the end. I think kids would enjoy this, but not older people.

    Fun, plus Tim Curry Sings that's got to be worth something

    I think if I had seen this movie as a child I may have liked it. It's way cheesy and has some horribly bad acting and effects. It does have Tim Curry though so it gets one and a half stars instead of just one.
