"A stupid witch who answers back must burn until her bones are black! A foolish witch without a brain must sizzle into fire and flame! An idiotic witch like you must roast upon the barbecue! And any witch who dares to say I'm wrong, will not be with us... VERY LONG!" What's not to love? Angelica Huston brings humor and horror to her portrayal of the Grand High Witch in the big screen adaptation of Roald Dahl's 1983 children's book. She is the tyrannical leader of a secret society in The Witches that seeks to turn all of England's children into mice. But she also murders one of her own at every witchy function to assert authority over her sinister sisters. With clawed hands and no toes or real hair (she often sports a wig), she conceals her gruesome face -- which looks worm-eaten and repulsively rotten -- with a mask.
