    I may have enjoyed this way more than I should've. Flawed by its acting, directing, and CGI, I found myself steadily watching Lilith's every cackling moment. Dee Wallace was pretty damn good in this, and I could swear she enjoyed it much more than she should have too! There are surprisingly some noteworthy gore shots in it too.

    I don't even know why I bothered. Bad acting with gore trying to modernize an old tale. Not a good choice.

    One line summary: Bears little resemblance to the fairy tale; poor as a gorefest. --------------------------- Set in modern times, say 2013, in a small town in the USA. Hansel and Gretel are brother and sister. Their mother has passed away. Their father is thinking of marrying Ruby, who is three years older than Gretel, selling the house, then moving somewhere else. Hansel, an irresponsible video gamer, runs off and puts his leg in a bear trap. Oi. They see a cabin, which turns out to belong to Lilith, who operates the local general store. Lilith's specialty is a meat pie. When the siblings go to Lilith's house, she feeds Hansel a beef stew that he really likes. Hansel and Gretel stay overnight. Lilith tells Gretel that a neighbor took Hansel to the hospital while Gretel was sleeping. In the meantime, Hansel wakes up in a prison with Jane, Kevin, and Dana. There used to be more in the cell, but they are gone now. They have plenty to eat, all of it cookies, doughnuts, and candies. Kevin informs them that they are being fattened up to be used as meat. They take Dana. Lilith tries to convince Gretel to be her heir, or at least one of the 'family,' such as it is. Gretel resists. Lilith has her dumped in the prison cell. They take Jane, but not before Jane steals a pointy object that she passes to Hansel. He uses it to unlock their shackles and the cell door. Kevin makes a break for freedom; Hansel and Gretel try to rescue Jane. Ruby and the local police look for them, though quite ineffectively. -------Scores-------- Cinematography: 7/10 Much of the movie looked fine, but some of the dark sections were ridiculously poorly done. Sound: 6/10 The conversation is a close to muted all too often. Acting: 2/10 Dee Wallace was fine, but the rest of the cast was terrible. Screenplay: 0/10 The story made no particular sense. None of the characters were interesting, and I found no reason to care about any of them.

    I don't know why there's so many reviews on IMDB that say this movie sucks. Yes it has it's moments where it's just.....just stupid but the horror of it is...I guess you could say it's good but not like Saw good or The Collection good but it's better than a couple of cheesy movies out there. The story...well you all know the story of Hansel & Gretel EXCEPT for the ending which had no relation to the original stories whatsoever. The acting wasn't great but again it was better than most cheesy movies. It was really more of a thriller than a horror, I think the only reason It's considered horror is because of all the blood it shows and possibly the swearing, but other than that stuff it's a thriller. Bottom line it was too cheesy and not scary at all, so I'm gonna have to say....Unrecommended

    Bad acting, even worse scenario - no reason to watch this.

    I dunno what to think about it.. it was kinda boring, there was no real gingerbread house just a bakery named the gingerbread house.. its this new "brutal" take.. wasn't brutal at all barely any blood, and barely any killing... but the end I wasn't expecting.. but it was like WHOA or anything it was more a meh

    Hansel & Gretel : Le conte est drôlement bien modernisé, et on se prend à ce second degré sympathique.
