It's been a while since Osgood Perkins came along and delivered the one-two punch of The Blackcoat's Daughter (2015) and I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives in the House (2016), but early next year he'll be back with a brand-new thriller, this one based on the classic Grimm fairy tale, Hansel & Gretel.
This one's called Gretel & Hansel, presumably to avoid any confusion with the 2013 Jeremy Renner vehicle.
This looks pretty good! Chilly, atmospheric as all hell, with a look and tone that feels a helluva lot like Robert Eggers' The Witch. Given how much we enjoyed Perkins' last few efforts, we need no further convincing. We'll definitely check this out when it arrives early next year.
Here's an official plot synopsis, should you need one:
"A long time ago in a distant fairytale countryside, a young girl leads her little brother into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil."
Gretel & Hansel arrives in theaters on January 31st, 2020. Y'all gonna show up for it or what? Sound off in the comments below.
