IMDb, Plot, Review, And Film Summary.
The IMDb rating for the 1990 classic is 6.8/10. The popularity hasn’t been increasing over time but the movie is a classic nevertheless. Nominated for 1 BAFTA Film Award. Another 3 wins & 7 nominations.
“The Witches,” tells a story about a young boy called Luke who lives with his grandmother who always tells him stories about witches that hate little children. One day, they travel to England for a holiday, where he finds out that an organization for the prevention of cruelty to children that has a club meeting in their hotel is actually a coven of wicked witches who plan on turning all children of England into mice. When he is discovered, Luke himself suffers from this fate. In his animal form, he now plans to stop the witches with the aid of another boy turned mouse and his grandmother. Due to terrific and terrifying makeup and puppetry by the Jim Henson Company and a blissfully macabre villainous performance by Anjelica Huston, “The Witches” is a nightmarish dark fantasy tale that will scare little children but enchants fans of Tim Burton-esque horror tales.
