The Witches (1990) - Director: Nicolas RoegReal witches dress in ordinary clothes and look very much like ordinary women. They live in ordinary houses, and they work in ordinary jobs. Every country in the world has witches. And there is a leader, a high witch, of each country. And the ruler of all the witches is the most evil woman in creation - the grand high witch … herself. Witches spend their time plotting to kill children, stalking the wretched child like a hunter stalks a bird in the forest.
