Welcome to the wonderful world of witchy women! They can be sexy, funny, cute or downright terrifying. And sometimes all four at once. We asked the Kali Krew to name their favorite witches from fiction. Enjoy as we bring you a list of our favorite witches who ever witched.
The Charmed Trio from Charmed
It’s a little torn on which trio you prefer. We’ve got Team Piper, Phoebe and Prue with a Team Piper, Phoebe and Paige. We’ll leave it up to you to decide who’s in ‘witch’ camp.
Nancy Downs from The Craft
Yes, Robin Tunney as Sarah is the main character but damn. Fairuza Balk as Nancy steals the show. She may be overplayed a bit but it works.
The Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus
Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker as three goofy witch sisters, need we say more?
Sally and Gillian Owens from Practical Magic
In GracieKat’s humble opinion the movie, in this case, is so much better than the book. The sisters feel more like sisters than in the book.
Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service
See! Cute witches!
Lady Jessica from Dune
The Grand High Vitch from The Witches
Before Anjelica Huston played Morticia she freaking killed it as The Grand High Vitch in The Witches. Literally and figuratively.
Hermione Granger from Harry Potter series
We all have a love for studious little Hermione. One could argue that she’s a better witch than Harry is a wizard and kicks much ass in her journey through the series. Much more than Harry does. Oh, Ron? What did he do again?
Check out the Lovely Miss L’s review of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Illustrated book edition)
Miss Price from Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Ok, ok. It’s more fantasy and kid friendly (The Witches does not count as kid friendly) but Angela Lansbury is a freaking national treasure in both England and America.
Matilda from Matilda
The brilliantly, cute little witch who ends up with the sweet Miss Honey mom that she deserves.
