From visionary director Osgood Perkins comes a terrifying new twist on the classic tale of Gretel and Hansel starring Sophia Lillis.
A long time ago in a distant fairy-tale countryside, a young girl (Lillis) 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. The film also stars Alice Krige, Jessica De Gouw and Charles Babalola.
Visually – Perkins, the director of The Blackcoat’s Daughter and I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House – has managed to inject some pretty creepy sequences. Still it remains to be seen if Gretel and Hansel will be able to lure audiences into cinemas at the end of January 2020.
