This horror film, directed by Oz Perkins, was once a fun-loving children’s story. Now it has turned into a creepy yet satisfying movie.
It certainly took a minute to adapt to such a new atmosphere, and the way the story was turned into horror, it’s as if you can’t keep your eyes off of it.
Now it does show some disturbing images every now and then, but that is to come with the new Hansel & Gretel. Watching these two go on this chilling adventure in the house of an evil witch is definitely one for the books. This movie definitely sends chills down your back. And might I add, the actors for this film were spot on.
The woman who played the witch, by the name of Alice Krige, really had me at the edge of my seat! Even though many of us have read the books and seen the cartoons, this film was still unpredictable. The film isn’t perfect, as there were a couple of potholes that can be easily pointed out. Also there were a few unanswered questions. Which points out the difference between this horror film and the original story itself.
In my opinion, to really get into this film you have to pay close attention, as it does have some strange elements to it. If you do not get wrapped up in it enough to understand the full concept of what Oz Perkins is trying to do, you will grow bored.
But overall, the acting was good. I appreciated the dialogue, and even the hair and costume designs. A great film that can be appreciated by those of us who loved the original story. So while reviewing this, I will give Oz Perkins a five star.
