The Witches

The witches hate children with a sizzling red-hot hatred. They have sorcery in their fingers and devilry in their blood. They’ll frizzle you like a fritter – but beware! It’s almost impossible to spot them. These frightening fiends look just like ordinary women, wearing gloves to hide their sharp claws and wigs to cover their bald heads. Now these hideous crones are on a terrible mission. They want to destroy every single child in the world. Is this curtains for you and your friends? Or can one brave kid and his grandma stop them?
