The Roald Dahl classic children’s book gets the movie treatment in the 1990 flick The Witches!
This movie is notably creepy with its Jim Henson puppetry and intense witch makeup on Anjelica Huston. The Not Quite Dead gals debate the film’s ending – markedly different from the book – and discuss the legacy of Roald Dahl’s books.
Arts & Crafts
The inspiration for The Witches arts and crafts was the transformation of the children into mice. See what Cate and Megan crafted for this episode below!
The instructions suggest using blanket stitch, but really any stitching will work!
Pro tip: Don’t sew on any button eyes if you are actually giving this to a small child / cat.
