This film was scarring to 6 year old me, my nan always had old time horrors playing on her TV when I visited, this being one of them (even though it's not technically classed as a horror). She was quite the film buff! She was also the reason I got into dinosaurs (and still love them to this day) after we watched Jurassic Park. Looking back now, I'm surprised she didn't put something more child-friendly on, but being as young as I was at the time, I never understood the plots, just remember the creepy imagery xD It's times like these that I miss my nan the most, where we'd watch old classics together.

Bruno's character in the book is hilariously stupid. He's so busy eating a sandwich a witch dropped that he hasn't even noticed he's a mouse. Literally, when the kid tells him, he's like "What do you mean? The fact that you're a mouse has nothing to do with me." Like it's not weird that they're the same size and the floor is inches away from his face, and then when the kid tells him he's a mouse he's like 'Why are you being so rude to me? I haven't been rude to you." And come to that, doesn't he remember those excruciating seconds when it was happening? What did he THINK that was about? The fur apparently feels like needles pricking out of your skin and shrinking feels like being squeezed down, and I haven't read that chapter in years, so I'm probably forgetting worse parts. It probably feels like far longer than it really is, but you'd think Bruno would at least notice that something had changed after that ordeal.

I like the movie ending better. As we’ve seen with the remake, the original ending doesn’t work. It means, in the end, the witches eventually win. Charlie at least got the damn elevator.

Not gonna lie; this movie scarred me when I first saw it as a kid! Not the whole movie but the scene where Bruno turns into a mouse. Not just cause he turns into a mouse but the visuals of when he's turning into a mouse! Beyond creepy!!

To be honest the elder hag is how a powerful witch would end up becoming in D&D. I will admit this would certainly scared a large amount of young children though.

While I like the film as a general, Roald Dahl was incredibly anti-semitic and the language used to describe the witches in the book are such anti-semitic dog whistles, it's shocking when you realise it. I know I can't unsee it

This movie maybe, maybe, the catalyst for my reason to hate kids. I'm 33, male, got a vasectomy when I was 25 and absolutely hate children with a dire passion. I cannot be around them going so far as to avoid whole stores when I see then cliche mom cart her 5 children into a store... If that's the case I thank this movie. Children are not our future, I am not being sarcastic, stop having kids. Just stop. Stop new game + 'ing your kids.

Roald Dahl in a nutshell: Screw your bedtime, your pants need a little more shit in them! P.S. I read Roald Dahl’s autobiography, ‘Boy’ and you’d think “finally, something that isn’t an R-Rated children’s book!” Wrong! He described in agonizing detail how evil teachers used to be (trust me, just read it!), the time he got his tonsils out using ww1 technology, the time he got his nose sliced off in a car crash, or the injuries he suffered in a ww2 plane crash! (Jesus Christ, this guy is evil!)

God, I remember seeing this back in, like, fourth grade. We watched it in class and it scared the absolute shit out of me. Didn't know who Roald Dahl was then, never read any of his books, and had only ever seen _Willie Wonka_ (which I loved, but they apparently took liberties with that version), but after this I didn't _want_ to know; all I wanted was to forget...I was much happier then... Although, I remember the ending still had him as a mouse, and he and his grandmother had built him contraptions to get around their house with. I guess that was the original ending. I assume Americans demanding something less bittersweet.

I’ve never been a fan of The Witches movie. I only recently saw it as an adult a few months ago and I can’t stand the little kid. I find him so annoying and obnoxious. So yeah... I actually look forward to the remake. I’m a big Anne Hathaway fan. She’s awesome! So, this is one of the few remakes I’m looking forward to seeing. I haven’t started watching the video. But, I’m not a fan of that annoying twerp. So I won’t mind you insulting him. I’m actually looking forward to hearing you hate on him for 22 minutes.

I never thought of this as scary, just grotesque and unsettling. And watching it now, my viewing experience is helped immensely when Luke becomes a mouse. His acting makes the kids in live action dumbo look like professionals
