The Chronicle



DIRECTOR Robert Zemeckis puts his spin on Roald Dahl’s creepy children’s story.

An orphaned boy (Jahzir Bruno) arrives in 1967 Demopolis, Alabama to live with his grandmothe­r (Octavia Spencer). It’s an unsettling time for the child, even more so when the grandmothe­r and boy encounter a coven of glamorous and diabolical witches.

The grandmothe­r heads to a seaside resort with her young ward to escape the choking fog of evil. Alas, The Grand High Witch (Anne Hathaway) and her cackling crones arrive at the same retreat to carry out a nefarious plan that will have dire consequenc­es for every child.

Available from October 26 via Premium Video On Demand rental for 48 hours.
