Hansel & Gretel is a 2013 horror film that is a modern retelling of the classic fairy tale. The movie is directed by Anthony C. Ferrante and stars Dee Wallace, Stephanie Greco, Brent Lydic, and Jasper Cole. The film opens with a young girl named Gretel who is devastated after her mother dies. Her father, who is an abusive alcoholic, marries another woman named Adelaide, who despises Gretel and her brother Hansel. Adelaide becomes increasingly cruel towards the children, and eventually, Gretel and Hansel decide to run away from home.

While fleeing from their home, Gretel and Hansel stumble upon a cabin in the woods. The cabin is the home of Lilith, a demonic witch who lures unsuspecting children to her lair and then feasts on their flesh. Lilith initially welcomes Gretel and Hansel into her home, but it doesn't take long for the siblings to realize that they are in grave danger.

As they try to escape from Lilith, Gretel and Hansel encounter a group of hunters who are hunting Lilith. The hunters, led by a man named Samuel, are determined to kill Lilith and put an end to her reign of terror. Together, Gretel, Hansel, and the hunters devise a plan to defeat Lilith.

The movie is a dark and twisted retelling of the classic fairy tale, and it is not for the faint of heart. The film is gory, violent, and intense, and it features several jump scares that will leave viewers on the edge of their seats.

The acting in Hansel & Gretel is solid, with outstanding performances from Dee Wallace and Stephanie Greco. Wallace, who plays Adelaide, is chilling in her portrayal of the wicked stepmother, while Greco, who plays Gretel, delivers a nuanced and emotional performance.

The special effects in the movie are impressive, with the scenes featuring Lilith being particularly well done. Lilith is portrayed as a grotesque and terrifying creature, and the makeup and special effects used to bring her to life are exceptional.

Overall, Hansel & Gretel is a well-crafted horror film that delivers plenty of scares and thrills. The movie is not without its flaws, with some of the scenes feeling a bit contrived and forced, but it is still an entertaining and suspenseful film that fans of the horror genre will enjoy.

Hansel & Gretel is a 2013 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 2.8.
