Well, we have been waiting on something that would have us shooketh about Robert Zemeckis’ upcoming The Witches film. I mean the original movie showcased some insane makeup that gave most of us 80s kids nightmares for days.
In the latest trailer that focuses on “how to spot a witch,” we get exactly what we have been waiting for. It features head witch Anne Hathaway revealing her witchy side. Part of that shows her with a creeptastic ear to ear grin with plenty of sharp teeth thrown in for good measure.
She also reveals her veiney head which is pretty gross and her strange claw hand.
We are suckers for practical effects over here so, its not as cool as it could have been since the ear to ear smile appears to be reliant on CG. But, its not all bad. Plus, we gotta say the first time we saw it we were forced to do a double take. It’s a very uniquely spooky look. I mean, if I was a kid, this would do it for me one-hundred percent.
At the end of the day we have to remember that this is a movie is made for kids after all. It will be a great gateway horror for some lucky kids and I’m all about that.
The Witches drops onto HBO MAX’s streaming service on October 22. Will you be watching? Let us know in the comments section.
