[5.75/10] Gretel & Hansel (2020)

Gretel & Hansel (2020)

Quick Review: The stylish use of both color and lighting, along with the creative production design, and sinister setting combined generate a somber tone and sense of eeriness, enhanced by Krige's forbidding turn, but "Gretel & Hansel" does little to set itself apart by only twisting a few bits, and lacks a true fairy tale feel due to Oz Perkins' modernized take, which results in a half-baked version that's murky in looks, moody in tone, if monotonous in plotting, mundane and free of actual frights.
