The Witches (2020)
7/10
A Remake Absolutely Unnecessary, But Also Funny
29 March 2021
The timeless Nicolas Roeg's "The Witches" (1990) is one of the most delightful movies from the 90's. Great performance, with Anjelica Huston fantastic and great make-up and special effects that have not aged after more than thirty years.

"The Witches (2020)" by Robert Zemeckis is a remake absolutely unnecessary, with the same story and modernizations (Afro-American lead actor and grandmother, state-of-art special effects etc.). However, the book by Roald Dahl is great and this film is fail-proof for children and adults. Consequently it is also funny. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Convenção das Bruxas" ("Witches Convention")
