Gretel & Hansel — Trailer and Featurette

Gretel & Hansel — A Grim Fairy Tale”

This looks like good scary fun. From the film’s description: “A long time ago in a distant fairytale countryside, a young girl leads her little brother into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil.” Sometimes the old stories are the best stories, although I don’t remember the Brothers Grimm ever using the phrase “a nexus of terrifying evil”. Maybe it was in the original German.

Alice Krige, who’s been in everything from Deadwood to Beverly Hills, 90210, plays the Witch.

Here’s a featurette about the movie.

Gretel & Hansel opens on 31 January 2020.
