This week, we are taking a look back at what might be one of the weirdest and most terrifying children’s films that has probably led to the emotional scars for an entire generation of children…..no we aren’t talking about Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory….we’re talking about his 1990 follow up, The Witches! A movie that might just be Mr. Bean’s only serious role and oh yea is 100% nightmare fuel. Dead parents…check. Horrifying witch practical makeup….double check. A plot that involves witches who murder children by turning them in mice…..triple check. Yup this movie checks all the nightmare fuel boxes yet somehow this movie is endeared by generations. So grab your Potion 86 and gobble down some Cress Soup as we dive into the weird and horrifying world of The Witches.
