You gotta love the good ol’ fashioned retellings of fairy tales. Disney has spent a good chunk of their history doing that very thing, but every now and then, you also get those films or shows that take an even more twisted approach to an already-twisted tale. This is the kind of thing we’ll be talking about today.
That tale is “Hansel and Gretl,” and the film is Gretel & Hansel, whose new trailer really brings up a mix of critically-acclaimed horror movies The Witch and Hereditary. Check out the trailer and you’ll likely see exactly what I mean.
A long time ago in a distant fairytale countryside, a young girl (Sophia Lillis, It) leads her little brother (Sammy Leakey) into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil.
From Osgood Perkins, the director of The Blackcoat’s Daughter and I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, the film also stars Alice Krige (The OA, Star Trek: First Contact), Jessica De Gouw (Underground, Arrow) and Charles Babalola (Black Mirror, The Legend of Tarzan).
Gretel & Hansel is written by Rob Hayes (“Chewing Gum”), produced by Brian Kavanaugh- Jones (Sinister, Upgrade) and Fred Berger (La La Land, Destroyer) on behalf of Automatik and executive produced by Sandra Yee Ling and Macdara Kelleher.
Orion Pictures presents Gretel & Hansel, in theaters nationwide on January 31, 2020.
