31 Days of Halloween: Movie Review #21

Ever since Angelica Houston did The Witches I've never been really able to get over it..... Probably because they made her look like this:

Which I must say is pretty hideous... but well played, and now every time I see her in a movie or as a guest star on TV I wonder if she's going to pull her face off. The movie itself is based on a book, which, sadly, I have not yet read. I'm not usually a big fan of movies like this one which portray witches as ugly, hooked-nosed, warty, child-eating, scary monsters (quite literally), but for the sake of Halloween creepiness and movie watching it certainly does the job.

You MUST read the book. It is totally wonderful.

I'm ashamed to say that I didn't even realize there was a book! I'll have to check it out. I remember that witch look too and it does freak me out!
