Hey Fiends, I’m back with some more scoop on the brand-new film “The Witches” which not only is a more in tune with the book by Roald Dahl, but also arrives on your preferred method of enjoying film and television just before Halloween. How cool is that? I discussed the trailer HERE if you missed it and now to move it along, please review the poster, premise and casting. Sure I will close out with some editorial as is my standard operating procedure.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: When I last checked, I still had access to HBO Max since I think my existing HBO subscription includes it. With that being said, I am not yet sure that I will be siting down to enjoy this one despite it looking very charming. If time permits I will sit and relax and let the world around me be one where “The Witches” are in full sway. I am glad that this isn’t surfacing with a premium access price like we found Disney+ doing since I think if you already subscribe to something there shouldn’t be an upper tier out of the blue. What do you readers think? Will you be watching this one? Were you a fan of the original film or the novel from which it originates from? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you again soon as the countdown to Halloween 2020 continues.
