The Witches, the Roald Dahl Cut (HD) *RELEASED*


Special Edition HD Fan-Edit
[HD .mkv | 720p]

Fantasy/family/horror | 1990 | UK/USA
Directed by Nicolas Roeg, starring Anjelica Huston, Mai Zetterling, Jasen Fisher.

"The Witches : The Roald Dahl Cut" aims to bring the film closer to the wonderful book it was based on. The dreadful happy ending, which Roald Dahl hated, has been completely removed, making the new and reworked ending absolutely identical to that of the book. The more "vulgar" bits (to quote Roald Dahl himself) have also been cut, so has the idiotic subplot of the bad-witch-turned-good. Other scenes have been re-ordered and recut. Presented in a remastered HD version and with a new DTS 5.1 audio mix, this new cut should please everyone who's ever enjoyed Roald Dahl's unique style, by making what is arguably the best film based on R. Dahl's work an even more faithful adaptation.

Bonus : A long lost 1979 video interview with Roald Dahl (included in the torrent).
