Produced by Jim Henson ("The Muppets"), whose famed Creature Shop provided the amazing special effects, Academy Award-winner Angelica Huston ("The Royal Tenenbaums," "The Addams Family") stars in this fanciful and exciting story about a nine-year-old and his grandmother who turn the tables on a witch's plot to turn all the children of Britain into mice. Pia Lindstrom, WNBC-TV, calls it "Marvelous!... A triumph of imagination!" and Entertainment Weekly says "with relish and high comic style, Huston plays the ugliest, wartiest witch imaginable." Co-starring comedy legend Rowan Atkinson ("Four Weddings and a Funneral," the "Mr. Bean" series and movies), and Jason Fisher ("Parenthood").

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As in his best films, here Mr. Roeg is a master of capturing the slightly off kilter sense of an apparently normal world. His camera is unobtrusive, and then suddenly it tilts a bit to jolt.
Fresh: Don't miss Anjelica Huston's deliciously vile transformation from beauty to beast. And don't miss this film.
Fresh: The wizardry of Jim Henson's Creature Shop and a superbly over-the-top performance by Angelica Huston gives The Witches a good deal of charm and enjoyment.
Fresh: Real darkness seethes beneath the "Once upon a time" surface, mostly due to Henson's seemingly curious selection of the brilliant and audacious Roeg to direct.
