Based on Roald Dahl's 1983 classic book 'The Witches', the story tells the scary, funny and imaginative tale of a seven year old boy who has a run in with some real life witches!

From Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis (“Forrest Gump”) comes the fantasy adventure “Roald Dahl’s The Witches.” The film stars Oscar winners Anne Hathaway (“Les Misérable,” “Ocean’s 8”) and Octavia Spencer (“The Help,” “The Shape of Water”), Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci (“The Hunger Games” films, “The Lovely Bones”), with Kristin Chenoweth (TV’s “Glee” and “BoJack Horseman”) and award-winning comedy legend Chris Rock. Newcomer Jahzir Bruno (TV’s “Atlanta”) also stars, alongside Codie-Lei Eastick (“Holmes & Watson”).

Reimagining Dahl’s beloved story for a modern audience, Zemeckis’s visually innovative film tells the darkly humorous and heartwarming tale of a young orphaned boy (Bruno) who, in late 1967, goes to live with his loving Grandma (Spencer) in the rural Alabama town of Demopolis. As the boy and his grandmother encounter some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly diabolical witches, she wisely whisks our young hero away to an opulent seaside resort. Regrettably, they arrive at precisely the same time that the world’s Grand High Witch (Hathaway) has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globe—undercover—to carry out her nefarious plans.

★★★★ - Stuff.co.nz 
"A vibrant, invigorating and slick production"
"The sumptuous-looking visuals (clever point-of-view shots and crazy camera angles abound) are married to a superior, satisfying and sassy story."
"[Octavia] Spencer’s performance is the heart and soul of this fabulous film.

★★★★ - Radio Times
"A grandly entertaining affair"

★★★★ - The Times
"
Anne Hathaway is mesmerising" 

★★★ - Sunday Times
"The Witches makes a sprightly companion piece to Spielberg's film, whisked along by Zemeckis's gifts of suspenseful mischief and dynamic framing..."
