I must admit that I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with most films from Asylum. With over 50 movies in the can, the production company has yet to lose money on a single feature. Often from the time a title is announced to the moment the film is available to purchase is less than six months. This is cynical filmmaking to say the least but there is something ingenious about the business side of this sort of low brow end of movies approach. Is this really anything different than what Roger Corman did in the 60s and 70s? Joe Dante's Piranha was a shameless rip off of Jaws. The Asylum's Hansel and Gretel is a shameless rip off of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. The real question to ask...does this rip off work or is it even worse than the "blockbuster" it is trying to capitalize on. Let's take a bite out of Hansel and Gretel.

As Hansel & Gretel begins we witness an overweight girl tied up in shackles trapped in a dark and dreary basement. She manages to get herself free and she runs out of the house and into the woods only to find herself trapped yet again. An apple in the mouth and some seasonings and she has become the next meal for the family who lives in the house. After "treated" to the opening Saw "homage", I was already tuning myself out of the film. But then something strange happened. The movie developed a sense of humor about itself and it went from being a chore to sit through to becoming one of the more entertaining movies of the last few years. We have our two heroes (Hansel and Gretel, of course) on a race against time as they battle the delightfully evil Dee Wallace as the witch. But I mean Dee Wallace runs a bakery that sells meat pies called The Gingerbread House. How great is that?

2.0 out of 5 stars WORLD FAMOUS MEAT PIE January 12, 2013
Format:DVD
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.

Dee Wallace does a fine job in this film. She really goes out of her nice and loving character to the Mother from the Devil. Interesting if you like this type of movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hansel and Regretful. April 11, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Wow.... Pretty rough, pretty rough.... This movie is good for a few laughs and that's about it.
Dialogue = Rough
Acting = Rough
FX = Rough

Honestly, the laugh factor was the only thing that was remotely entertaining through this one. It was hysterical to see just how many ridiculous faults and scenerios my wife and I could find throughout this chuckle-fest. But if you're looking for a legit horror, this isn't it.

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible movie January 18, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Do not be fooled into thinking this is the new Hansel and Gretel movie. This one has a terrible storyline, bad acting and shouldnt even be called a b movie - maybe a d movie?
