After his parents die in a car crash, Luke travels with his eccentric grandmother to a stark Cornish hotel. Also checking in is the annual ladies meeting of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Luke overhears a meeting only to discover they are actually a convention of ghastly witches hell bent on turning every child in Britain into a mouse. With imaginative puppetry by Jim Henson’s creature shop, Roeg’s dark and witty retelling puts disturbing flesh on Dahl’s fancies…
