Hansel and Gretel is getting the dark and creepy film adaptation that it truly deserves. The movie is called Gretel & Hansel, and I love the super creepy and unsettling vibe from it. This trailer is packed with some creepy new footage.
The story follows Gretel (Sophia Lillis) and her younger brother Hansel (Sammy Leake), and they left home during a time of pestilence and famine. While on their trip, they find a kindly huntsman (Charles Babalola) before finding solace in the home of a wicked elderly woman (Alice Krige) whose goals may not be altogether pure. She lures the two children into her home so she can cook them and eat them.
The movie comes from Osgood Perkins (I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House), and the script was written by Rob Hayes. Orion is releasing the movie on January 31, 2020.
