The Witches (1990)

Creepy fairy tale based on the Roald Dahl story about a young orphan who becomes embroiled in a supernatural adventure. Brought up on his kindly grandmother’s scary stories about witches, the lad stumbles upon a real coven while on holiday. Overhearing their plans to capture all the children in Britain, he sets out to stop them, remaining undeterred throughout – even when he has been turned into a mouse.
