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.
