Looking for a treat to keep the whole family spellbound this Halloween? Virgin Movies has got just the thing with the brand new release of Roald Dahl’s The Witches.


Available to rent from Monday 26 October in On Demand > Movies > Premium Rentals, this modern adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s novel boasts a sparkling all-star cast, bags of wit, and more frights than you can shake a magic wand at!

While staying with his grandmother (Octavia Spencer) at a hotel in 1960s Alabama, a young boy (newcomer Jahzir Kadeem Bruno) discovers a conference of fiendish witches – who are led by the despicable Grand High Witch (Anne Hathaway). After being transformed into a mouse, our hero must team up with the other children in the hotel if he wants to defeat them.


As you might expect from a movie directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back To The Future) and co-produced by Zemeckis, Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth) and Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity), The Witches is a spectacular fantasy that will leave you awestruck.


Make this Halloween a memorable one. Rent Roald Dahl’s The Witches on Virgin Movies from Monday 26 October by heading to On Demand > Movies > Premium Rentals – and let the magic commence!
