Rolling Stone - 11/01/1990

Entertainment Weekly - 05/27/1994
"...With relish and high comic style, Huston plays the ugliest, wartiest witch imaginable..." -- Rating: B+
Los Angeles Times - 08/24/1990
"...Dark, marvelous....What it shows, again, is the secret of Henson's vast appeal: his respect for children and their intelligence..."

Plot Synopsis:

Young Luke and his grandmother, on vacation in England, have just checked into a hotel. Also in the premises is the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, a false moniker that hides the fact that the organization's members are really evil-minded, mask-wearing, child-hating witches! And they have all gathered to discuss a most fiendish plot: to turn all children into mice, by feeding them poisonous chocolate. Luke overhears the heinous plans when he eavesdrops on the women, but unfortunately they capture him and turn him into a mouse. Unlucky Luke must scurry back up to his room -- without getting killed -- and alert his grandmother of the witches' intentions, before it's too late. Then, the neophyte rodent must find a way to become human again...
