Poster for THE WITCHES

The Witches

In Nicolas Roeg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s book “The Witches,” Helga (Mai Zetterling) and her young grandson Luke (Jasen Fisher) stumble upon a witches convention led by the Grand High Witch (Anjelica Huston) who wants to turn children into mice.

“Based on a Roald Dahl book, Nicholas Roeg's The Witches is a film surprisingly faithful to the creepiness of the original.”
Ada Calhoun, Austin Chronicle
“It's not a film for small children. But for precocious first-graders with a warped sense of humor and an appetite for chills, thrills and spills, nothing could be better.”
Michael Upchurch, Seattle Times

This film is part of the JBFC Kids series.
