Gretel & Hansel

Take a walk on the wild side.

The woods have rarely looked creepier than in this nerve-jangling, somewhat tweaked, retelling of a tale originally spun by the Brothers Grimm.

Our plucky protagonists are alone in the world — their father dead, their mother a raving loon on the fast track to joining her husband.

Thrown out to fend for themselves, with the older, more-haunted Gretel trying her best to keep way-too-trusting Hansel in one piece, they encounter all sorts of mysteries during their time communing with nature.

The bones of the story are familiar, but this version offers a distinctive sting.
