The Witches

British auteur Nicolas Roeg teams with Jim Henson to craft a darkly comedic fairy tale delight from the book by Willy Wonka creator Roald Dahl. A coven of witches at their international convention plot to turn the world’s children into teeny-tiny, fuzzy, four-legged mice. Can a young hero stop them? Anjelica Huston stars in a deliriously wicked performance, while the imaginative mouse-a-tronic puppetry by Henson’s Creature Shop still shines.
