  • On the plus side, this has very striking production design and impressive cinematography... [But] it's bleak where it should be intense. It's stylish, but not very scary.

  • It's got 'cult movie' written all over it [...] and audiences who tune into its unusual wavelength will no doubt be grateful for such a beautiful, frightening, intelligent new venture into an age-old nightmare.

    January 31, 2020 | Rating: 80/100 | Full Review…
  • "Gretel & Hansel" is as visually arresting as it is tedious, a 90-minute movie that really should have been a three-minute music video for Marilyn Manson or Ozzy Osbourne.

    January 30, 2020 | Rating: 0.5/4 | Full Review…
  • While [Perkins] offers a stunning feast for the eyes, the substance is likely to leave viewers still hungry.

    January 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Essentially the story of a young woman coming into her power, "Gretel & Hansel" is quietly sinister, yet too underdeveloped to truly scare.

    January 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • And for all of the care that went into its look and its sound, the world of the film never feels more than halfway formed; in the rush to tie up its narrative loose ends, it leaves its more intriguing thematic ones hanging.
