* CompleteMonster: [[WickedWitch The Grand High Witch]], the witches' [[BigBad leader]], and easily the most vile and cruel witch that we see. At her meeting with her followers, she wastes no time berating the witches of England for only getting rid of one child a week. She has a plan to [[WouldHurtAChild get rid of all of the children in England]]. When one witch gives a shocked exclamation of how impossible that is, the Grand High Witch [[ManOnFire incinerates her]]- a practice she makes a habit of at every single meeting she ever attends to keep the other witches on their toes (or lack there of). Her plan is simple: [[TransformationTrauma utilize a potion]] to [[BodyHorror turn every child]] in England [[BalefulPolymorph into mice]], and watch their own parents kill them. If a grown up is caught up in it, she says it's too bad for them as well. Amongst a ChildHater race, the Grand High Witch utterly outstrips the other witches in evil and cruelty, and everyone who meets her, from the young hero, to his retired witch hunter grandmother, to her fellow witches, are absolutely terrified by her.

!!From the 1966 Hammer Horror Film:

* {{Narm}}: Good '''GOD'''. The pagan dancing featured towards the end is infamous for it. Viewers are shocked by the abrupt MoodWhiplash - the film spends most of its time as a suspenseful thriller only to turn into a fountain of Narm.
* RewatchBonus: Astute viewers will notice that Ms Mayfield doesn't start to experience magical hallucinations [[spoiler: after she has talked with Stephanie about witches]].

[[spoiler: Luke and his grandmother find the main register to all the Witches in the world and intend to turn them into mice, but Luke is still a mouse, with absolutely no prospect of ever turning back into a boy. It's even mentioned that he's only going to live another nine years at the most before he dies, because he's a mouse.]]
