The Witches (1990)

The Witches (1990) is a comedy horror film based upon the book by Roald Dahl and directed by Nicolas Roeg.

DADDY: What did you think of the movie?

LILLY: It was fantastic. I loved that they turned children into mice.

DADDY: I thought it was great too and it is one of my favourite stories by Roald Dahl.

DADDY: Who was your favourite character?

LILLY: I liked the nice witch.

DADDY: I don't remember her in the book so the little boy has to stay being a mouse.

LILLY: That's terrible.

DADDY: I liked the grandmother because she was pretty cool for an old lady and the Grand High Witch.

LILLY: Yes she was Morticia.

DADDY: The actress is called Anjelica Huston. I think she is awesome but don't tell mum.


DADDY: What was your favourite moment?

LILLY: I liked the moment when you saw the Grand High Witch's real face.

DADDY: I liked that too and when the boys were turned into mice.

LILLY: Yeah.

DADDY: Would you recommend this to your friends?

LILLY: Yes because it is just as scary as it should be.

DADDY: Do you know that Roald Dahl also wrote Charlie And The Chocolate Factory?

LILLY: Yes he is a great writer.

LILLY: Can I give this ten stars?

DADDY: You know it and I will too because it is a great film.

DADDY: You should look out for women who act like you smell funny and cackling is a sure sign they are witches too.

LILLY: Yes, witches think children smell like dogs droppings!
