A wonderful cautionary tale for children about the wiles of witches---although, its mildly adult situations make this more a film for grownups than for children.
Anjelica Huston is thoroughly convincing as the Grand High Witch. She is both sensual and sinister at the same time.
Mai Elisabeth Zetterling plays the grandmother of the protagonist. She is perfect as the teller of dark tales as she enjoys her cigars and helps her grandson recognize witches and avoid their evil schemes.
Rowan Atkinson, in his role as hotel manager Mr. Stringer, lends comic relief as the story develops in the Excelsior Hotel in Cornwall by the beach.
This is one of my must-watch films every fall as Halloween approaches.

Taking a journey back to my childhood to share with my son some of my childhood favorites has been a lovely gift. Reawakened to the beauty of family, dreams, community, and openheartedness!

I just LOVE this movie!!! Angelica Houston plays a marvelous head witch. It's more Disney than scary but there are a couple of parts that very small children might find scary. Jim Henson's puppetry is featured in this movie and they are really well done!
