Robert Zemeckis’ remake of the 1990 classic Halloween film ‘The Witches’ is as good as the original movie, if a little less scary. The plot is inspired by Roald Dahl’s 1983 children’s horror novel of the same name. The 2020 ‘Witches’ stars Anne Hathaway as the menacing kid-hating leader of a coven of evil witches, Octavia Spencer as the kind and loving yet strong-willed Grandmother, and Stanley Tucci as the slightly snobbish and hilarious hotel manager Mr. Stringer. The story follows an unnamed orphan boy as he visits a seaside resort with his grandmother and gets caught up in the evil plans of a coven of witches. Zemeckis’ ‘The Witches’ is visually enchanting and has an engaging narrative (with narration by Chris Rock) and will keep the young audiences entertained, even thoroughly spooking them out. But the parents or adult viewers might be left a little bit disappointed as there is not much substance to the story. Curious to know more about the film ‘The Witches’ and where to stream it? You’ve come to the right place!
