Something wicked . . . Following the same storyline as the 1990 film based on Roald Dahl’s classic novel, this remake of The Witches stars Anne Hathaway as the Grand High Witch.
In this dark fantasy film, she leads a group of witches plotting to turn children into mice in Alabama during the 1960s.
But the battle is on when they’re met by an orphaned boy named Charlie (Jahzir Bruno) and his grandmother Agatha (Octavia Spencer), who are on a mission to try to stop the gang of evil hags and prevent the magic potion they’ve concocted from getting out.
