[A] visually gruesome and beautiful bildungsroman that gives the classic story new life.

This is Young Adult horror at its finest.

If Gretel & Hansel doesn't turn out to be one of the year's genre highlights, 2020 will be a very good year at the movies indeed.

Gretel & Hansel is not the fairy tale you know.

February 3, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

Like Perkins' previous efforts, his latest operates on mood and atmosphere over narrative, and it's one that lacks mainstream appeal. The film is mesmerizing style over substance, but one that transports you if you're open to its high-concept spell.
