Critic Reviews for Gretel & Hansel
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.
"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.
While [Perkins] offers a stunning feast for the eyes, the substance is likely to leave viewers still hungry.
Essentially the story of a young woman coming into her power, "Gretel & Hansel" is quietly sinister, yet too underdeveloped to truly scare.
Gretel & Hansel may alienate some horror movie fans with its extremely leisurely pacing and emphasis on atmosphere and mood rather than visceral shocks. But while the film certainly demands patience, it provides ample rewards with its lush stylization.
