Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE WITCHES is a fantasy adventure in which a boy and his grandmother attempt to stop a group of evil witches.

Threat

Occasional scary scenes include the witches removing their human faces to reveal the grotesque real forms beneath, and sequences in which children are transformed into mice which feature brief imagery of the victims mid-way through transformation where they exhibit both human and rodent features.

Scenes of mild threat include a baby being pushed down a hillside towards a cliff, although it is stopped in time and the child is unharmed. In another scene it is implied that a mouse's tail has been cut off.

Language

Infrequent mild bad language includes a use of 'bloody'.
