The White Witch and Evil

Spencer Troxell has some interesting thoughts on the portrayal of evil, as seen in the character of the White Witch, Jadis, in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. He points out, basically, that this is far more understated and so, realistic, embodiment of the demonic that we're likely to find elsewhere.

I think that Spencer's right and it adds to the power of the film and the book on which it's based.
