    The Witches

    ★★★

    Octavia Spencer is an absolute delight and Anne Hathaway is in campy heaven in Roald Dahl’s The Witches, a remake of the 1990 film that left children petrified.

    In a world where witches exist and despise young children, a young orphaned boy ends up in one’s crosshairs, leading to he and his grandmother (Spencer) hiding out at a hotel that just happens to be hosting a coven. If you’re familiar with the Angelica Houston version, you know how creepy and…

    ★★

    Imagine if John Hughes directed Jeepers Creepers, throw in a dash of Meryl Streep’s The River Wild, and you have this feeble attempt at a creature feature.

The scariest part of Shortcut may be the lack of originality, choosing to rely on worn character constructs that include the…
