The Witches, by Roald Dahl


The Witches was a seminal read for all young people, and the 1990 film version of Roald Dahl’s children’s novel still gives many of us shivers thanks to Angjelica Huston’s chilling performance (and those creepy prosthetics). The new film diversifies the same story, moving the action to the American South, where Anne Hathaway plays a witch who threatens Octavia Spencer and her adorable grandson.

A young boy and his Norwegian grandmother, who is an expert on witches, together foil a witches’ plot to destroy the world’s children by turning them into mice.
