The Witches

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 49% Fresh (Critics) – 34% Fresh (Audience)

The plot: The Witches tells the darkly humorous and heartwarming tale of a young orphaned boy (Bruno) who, in late 1967, goes to live with his loving Grandma (Spencer) in the rural Alabama town of Demopolis. The boy and his grandmother come across some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly diabolical witches, so Grandma wisely whisks our young hero away to an opulent seaside resort. Regrettably, they arrive at precisely the same time that the world’s Grand High Witch (Hathaway) has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globe—undercover—to carry out her nefarious plans.

The plot: Desperate for work, a young drifter applies for a job at the local mortuary on the outskirts of town. There, she meets Montgomery Dark, an eccentric mortician with more than a few skeletons in his closet. Montgomery chronicles the strange history of the town through a series of twisted tales, each more terrifying than the last.

Let It Snow

The plot: Separated from her fiancé after sneaking onto a restricted slope, Mia, a free-riding snowboarder, must survive not only against nature but the masked snowmobile rider who’s out for her blood.
