The sheer terror of Nicolas Roeg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Witches is surely cemented in many a millennial’s brain—now the story gets a retelling for a new generation. Robert Zemeckis crafts a fun take on the tale of shapeshifting witches who want to rid the world of children, but it’s not an entirely necessary or inventive reimagining of the story. Along with Zemeckis, the screenplay touts film and fantasy giants Alfonso Cuarón and Guillermo del Toro—who pay a weird and wacky homage in line with the original story. The story may be a bit too familiar to stand out, but it’s worth a watch to see A-list actors have a fun and ridiculous time. Anne Hathaway and Stanley Tucci, notably, both don cartoonish accents and mannerisms, rightfully forgoing their appearances for the spirit of a children’s movie.
