Customer Review

on 10 May 2013
The story of Hansel and Gretal has been turned into a bad slasher film by the folks at Asylum. The film opens with a rather heavy set woman being baked alive. They actually stick the proverbial apple in her mouth. After the credits we move to the mountain town of Candlewood, where at the Gingerbread House, Lilith (Dee Wallace) serves up her world famous meat pie to a customer. Not too hard to figure out.

Gretal Grimm (Stephanie Greco) works for Lilith, a person she has taken a shine too. After a family squabble Hansel Grimm (Brent Lydic) runs off into the nearby mystic woods, that no one has ever ventured into. Gretal chases after her brother.

The film digresses into a dungeon imprisonment film complete with goons. The ageless Lilith's powers are chemical and not supernatural.

The picture takes us into the action early. Not much build up. Unfortunately the rest of the film involves escape attempts and battling the captors in a very "B" horror/slasher type of fashion.

Brent Lydic's acting was noticeably bad, as was much of the supporting cast. The script was trite.

Parental Guidance: F-bomb. No sex or nudity. Sara Fletcher in bra/panties. Some torture/blood. Cannibalism. 1 1/2 stars. If you are not a fan of Asylum's bad films, I would suggest you take a pass on this one.
