Throwback Cinema Presents
THE WITCHES
UK 1990 92min PG
Directed by Nicolas Roeg
Starring Anjelica Huston, Jasen Fisher, Mai Zetterling, Rowan Atkinson, the Girl in the Painting

Time flies when you're having fun, and we can hardly believe that Throwback Cinema turns two this month! To celebrate our wildly successful sophomore year, we've selected a movie that epitomizes the perfect Throwback film: a little bit scary, a lot of fun, and just the title itself gets you excited to watch it again---THE WITCHES!

Based on the classic Roald Dahl novel, this 1990 film (directed by Nicolas Roeg) is about the adventures of Luke and his grandmother Helga, who is known for her terrifying and terrific stories about witches: demons who disguise themselves as women and lure children (their sworn enemy) to horrible, magical fates. Unfortunately for Helga and Luke, they've decided to spend their summer vacation at the same resort that is hosting the annual global witches conference. When the Grand High Witch unveils her new secret global strategy (lacing candy with a magic potion to turn children into mice) she decides to make Luke one of her first test subjects! Can Luke escape and warn others of the impending disaster before its too late, or will THE WITCHES triumph? A children's classic known for amazing practical effects, suspense, and Anjelica Huston's iconic performance, families and the young at heart are sure to love this daring, darkly funny movie! --CRYSTAL MADORE
