Review

Add HANSEL & GRETEL to the list of instant
classics. This freaky fable manages to outdo
even the likes of PAN S LABYRINTH and THE
ORPHANAGE in its presentation of a bold and
beautiful, but still downright terrifying, adult
nightmare. See it and prepare to be amazed. It is
one of the year s best. --Fangoria

A TALE OF TWO SISTERS meets PAN S
LABYRINTH in this dark fairy tale that
breathes some fresh air into the South Korean
horror industry. HANSEL & GRETEL is one of
the most powerful movies I ve seen in a long
time. It s pure genius. --Slasherpool

Format: Blu-ray
Look below the surface, and fairy tales can be terrifying, grotesque and unnerving... which makes them perfect for a horror-fantasy movie.

And there's no shortage of either beauty or horror in "Hansel and Gretel" -- it's a dark fairy tale that starts off as lovely as an antique wind-up toy, but soon the prettiness flakes away to show the horrors underneath. The actors all do excellent jobs (particularly the three kids), but the real star here is Yim Pil-Sung's lushly atmospheric direction.

After a car accident, Eun-soo (Cheon Jeong Myeong) finds himself wandering through a lush green forest, until he comes across a colorful little cottage that is every child's dream -- countless toys, and no food but candy and cake. The family inside seems similarly perfect, but they're strangely reluctant to let Eun-soo go -- and soon the parents vanish, leaving Eun-soo to watch the three eerie kids.

Oh yes, and whenever poor Eun-soo tries to walk back to civilization, the the forest itself swamps him with snow and darkness.

Stuck with the kids (and a pair of increasingly creepy yuppies who are also stranded), Eun-soo begins to realize that this house isn't just creepy because of the "children's fantasy" theme. There's something dark and weepy in the attic, a girl wanders through the house and yard, and the children start to demonstrate darker facets -- and mysterious powers that are keeping him trapped.

Porcelain doll-women, people swallowed by trees, magical picture books, an endless forest littered with toys, and a house where children's wishes come true.

Format: DVD
There have been many bits of Asian Horror and most of them have the stereotypical element of the long-haired white-faced vengeful ghost. Of course, it is quite refreshing to find one without the overused element of the "Yurei" (which is a powerful part of Japanese lore). "Hansel and Gretel" is a film by Pil-Sung Yim and masquerades as a horror film but feels more like a suspense surreal thriller instead. The film has some very impressive visuals, and strong production values--and instead of utilizing a dark, ominous atmosphere, it displays colorful cinematography that proves as creepy as any other dark, bluish atmosphere.

When Eun-soo Lee (Jeong-myeong Cheon) has a car accident (which is why talking on the cell phone while driving is outlawed in California), he regains consciousness within a forest with a 12-year old girl named Yeong-Hee (Eun-kyeong Shim) who leads them to their house in the middle of the woods. Once there, he meets the parents, Yeong-Hee's older brother Man-Bok (Won-jae Eun) and cute younger sister (played by Ji-hui Jin), he is invited to stay the night. Come morning, Eun-soo is served sweets for breakfast which was quite odd. Eun-soo also finds that he is unable to find his way out of the forest by himself and decides to impose upon the kindly family once again to stay one more day. The following day, he finds the children crying and that the parents have left on an urgent matter and asks Eun-soo to watch over the kids. Eun-soo soon realizes that these are not your normal children and that there have been other guests in their home, and none of them ever found a way out of the forest.

The film has very high production values and has superb visuals. "Hansel and Gretel" is quite unique when we think about all the overused elements in Korean horror.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
It is disturbing and immensely beautiful, with every scene a painting come to life, much in its own way as Death in Venice, and I don't think anyone could escape being caught in wonderland. Like any good film, it touches the heart and finds it searching for places and gaps memories and tomorrows it never knew it was searching for before.

It could be in the mind of a child on the brink of sleep, that is so frightening tender, so scratching against winter window, poor and threadbare, that contrasts with the film's richness of candy and cakes and eternal Christmas trees and presents under them, heavy snow forever more, an exquisitely created dream of a house of jolly elf coated nightmares and furnishings and frenetic parents who try to recapture something they hope is in you, at the same time you realize they're hiding something so unspeakably terrifying and that is when you begin to know you are the bulwark of this hideous thing and you must please.

As you feel this artificial glowing inside yourself turned into a hollow thing that leaves you stranded and alone, just as you think young forever, then close to the child almost the moment of clarity, and you fall asleep and wake to the fever of Christmas morning.

The earlier front cover of the DVD case has a picture of the children on the couch, looking so solemn and forlorn. The words above them read: Don't go. We'll be good. And they try and they are really the needed, finally the sacrifice comes in the sadness you feel when you realize for the first time you are indeed grown up but inside you is for always the corpse of the child who was once you.

In the frightening fairytale woods all around this home of happy children, supervised by adults of a certain nervous condition.
