Gretel and Hansel Trailer

"Careful, dear… I'd hate for you to start something you can't stop." Orion has unveiled a teaser trailer for Gretel and Hansel, a new dark horror take on the classic "Hansel & Gretel" fairy tale, from the director of The Blackcoat's Daughter. The story you know hides a dark secret… A long time ago in a distant fairy tale countryside, a young girl leads her little brother into a dark wood only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil. Starring Sophia Lillis (seen in the It movies), along with Alice Krige, Jessica De Gouw, Charles Babalola, Sammy Leakey, and Beatrix Perkins. This teaser is super freaky right from the start, and has some clear Guillermo del Toro influences. Hell of an introduction to this new horror fairy tale. Check it out.

Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Oz Perkins' Gretel and Hansel, direct from YouTube:

The screenplay is written by Rob Hayes (East Meets Barry West). Inspired by the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Produced by Fred Berger and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones. Orion Pictures will release Oz Perkins' Gretel and Hansel in theaters everywhere starting January 31st, 2020 early next year. How does it look so far? Freaky or not?

Grimm's stories were almost never real fairy tales. Although, I don't know what to make of this. It looks like someone is trying to exaggerate with eerie and scary ...

"THIS AIN'T YOUR FATHERS HANSEL & GRETEL!!!" Where's the candy coated cottage?!? Where's all the sweets and yum yums?!? This is all dark and hard to see! No colors AT ALL?!? This has NO right to be called Gretel & Hansel!

Haha! I enjoyed the hell out of that one. It was so ridiculous, you couldn't NOT have a good time watching. They knew exactly what they were doing.
