Name of this fantasy movie from the 80's?

When I was really young, I remember seeing a movie in the theater and can't for the life of me remember what it is. It was live-action, not animated.

1) The villain turned kids into crows.

2) Villian was in a castle and the crows flew around it.

3) Villain had a heart of stone, I think, literally.

4) Hero was a boy

5) I vaguely remember a white horse or maybe even a unicorn/pegasus

I appreciate any help. It's been driving me nuts for years!
