The Reviews for The Witches (1990) 1080p

The WitchesReviewed bymaster_dark4duneVote: 7/10

With Roald Dahl's tale of mythic women who wish to rid the world of children taken to film, it's only natural that fans may get upset. They need not be frightened too much, as with Roald Dahl's humour and dark cruelty towards children from adults used throughout the film, the film stands strong.

The start works really well with a beautiful piece of music looking over the rooftops of Luke's (the central character)grandmother's home town. Then it turns out that his grandmother is teaching him about witches, before becoming overwhelmed by the death of his parents. His grandmother decides to return to England at a hotel where a convention of evil witches is taking place.

Angelica Huston as the Grand High Witch is simply astounding, with her performance showing the character with all the imagination that is held within her.

Mai Zetterling is favourable as Luke's grandmother who attempts to bring down the witch's hideous crimes.

The film is enchanting, adorable, frightening and funny and it's a treat for children. Although it can be quiet terrifying for very young children.

This is the genuine article, a children's movie enjoyable by the wholefamily. It deals with the legends of evil witches by showing childrenthat good overcomes evil. There is a good deal of slapstick andsilliness that reminds older folks of the Hal Roach "Keystone Cops".However, the silliness never obscures the human message. This is alsonot a "Jackass" film with dangerous stunts for kids to try at home. Fora change, love is portrayed as something true and valuable to bedesired and pursued. The cast is excellent from top to bottom, with thebest actors doing some of their sometimes most understated and oftenbrightest over-the-top work. It has been a family favorite from coastto coast ever since it came out and our extended clan can't recommendit highly enough.

Enjoyable and quite menacing despite having the look and feel of a cheap British movie from the 1970'sReviewed bybob the mooVote: 7/10

Luke's grandmother always warned him of witches ? child hating women notable for their baldness, lack of toes and purple tinged eyes, however it is a tragic accident, not witches, that robs him of his parents and sees him placed in her care. Soon he has his first experience with a witch and learns just how frightening they can be. Later they are staying in a hotel where Luke's mice gets him into trouble with the manager. Although this is naught compared to Luke's discovery that the group of women in a RSPCC conference are really all witches in a meeting chaired by the global head witch herself! With a grand plan to wipe out children in England, Luke must act to stop them but when he is discovered and caught, it seems very unlikely.

Although I read the book many times as a child I had never seen this film until recently. The first thing that strikes you about it is how dated and rather cheap it feels ? it doesn't look very polished and has the look of a British family film made on a tight budget (which of course it is). It is difficult to get over this feeling and the television-programme look to it due to the film stock and sets doesn't help. However get used to it and the story is actually pretty effective and does the spirit of the book proud by being an imaginative tale that will be genuinely frightening for children ? a good thing when done properly as Roald Dahl shows regularly. The story is enjoyable with some frightening bits, some humour and generally good telling throughout. The makeup is sufficiently hideous and the puppetry on the mice is good considering the budget.

The cast are mixed. Fisher is poor and only adds to the "cheap television film" feel; he can't act for toffee and he doesn't do anything that good ? although he is better as a voice than he is in the flesh. Zetterling isn't that much better although hers is a support role. Small roles from Atkinson, Horrocks, Blethyn, Potter and others all add a bit of depth without ever shining or sticking in the memory. Thank goodness then for Huston, who dominates the film with a performance that fits the character perfectly. She gyrates sexually as she prepares to use her formula on a child and she totally convinces as the lead witch while also having fun with such an evil character.

Overall this is an enjoyable low budget affair despite the rather dated and cheap look it consistently has. It would greatly benefit from a remake with greater resources and a better delivery that gets the menace right in a polished product but this is still a good film although perhaps occasionally too scary for younger children.
