Dark Woods Fairy Tale Horror 'Gretel and Hansel' Creepy Teaser 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.
