A film that is both good and original...
...but the bits that are good are not original, and the bits that
original are not that good.
With impressive special effects, evil witches, a brave hero, and all that
this film has to offer, children will probably enjoy this film immensely
be scared out of their wits (or possibly both).
But only if they haven't read the book.
If you've read the book, this is my warning to you: They added the
to the film. A *good* witch who goes around undoing the evil doings of the
other witches. If you liked the book's ending, *do not* watch this

Another Great Roald Dahl Story
A young boy named Luke who has recently lost his parents, while
traveling with his grandmother Helga (Mai Zetterling) they stumble
across a convention of witches at a seaside resort in England. The
witches masquerading as the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Children are in fact launching a plan to turn all the children in
England into mice. Apparently witches simply don't like the smell of
children. It seems the Helga is somewhat acquainted with witches and
the danger they pose. Unfortunately though when Luke attempts to spy
upon them, he is caught and switched into a mouse while still retaining
his mental faculties. It's now up to Helga and her grandson (now in
mouse form) to stop this fate from befalling other children.
This is another good family film based on the works of Roald Dahl
(Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda) which should appeal to
both adults and children, though it might be somewhat frightening to
The wonderful cast includes a frightening Angelica Huston as the head
witch as well as Jane Horrocks, Rowan Atkinson and Brenda Blethyn.
This would be the only real family or children's film by Nicholas Roeg,
a Director with considerable visual skills.
This was the last film in which Jim Henson was personally involved
before his untimely death. In addition to the contributions of his
Creature Shop he served as a producer.
Apparently both of the directors Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuarón
have expressed interest in filming there own version of the book..
