Day 23: 31 Days of Horror: The Witches

Roald Dahl always wrote fantastically creepy children's novels, which were awesome. The Witches (1990) is based off one of them. Young Luke, who is recently orphaned, moves in to live with his grandma. He and his grandma get along very well and she is always telling him stories. She tells him stories about witches and insists that they are in fact real. One day, the two go to an old hotel in England for a vacation. At the hotel that they are staying at, a witch's convention is secretly being held by the Grand High Witch (Anjelica Huston) and Luke accidently stumbles in on it. The witches are plotting to rid the entire world of children by turning them all into mice. After he is caught and turned into a mouse himself, Luke does everything in his power to stop the witches from carrying out their evil plan.
