A long time ago in a distant fairy tale 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.
What had me right away was the trailer! It was right up my freaking alley! Plus, I’m a big dark fantasy and horror lover. I was ready and my expectations were high!
Let me get started on my first thing! The music score! Probably one of my favorite music scores from a horror film. Seriously, awesome! The atmosphere has that slow moving, creepy, and beautiful quality that I love so dearly! And the movie was just deliciously weird in general!
My lady, Alice Krige, was so dang good! I’ve loved her since Sleepwalkers, which is still one of my favorite movies ever! Then comes Sophia Lillis. I knew she was going to be great because she was fab in It, and she was just as great here. Also, the clothing, the era, please someone get me the heck out of here and back to that awesome time!
Overall, I definitely recommend Gretel & Hansel if you like movies such as The Witch and other atmospheric movies like that! A+++++
