Critic Reviews:

Moreso than the obvious shift in perspective, Gretel & Hansel is about the friendship Gretel and Holda form, as the former wrestles with her trust issues.

GRETEL AND HANSEL is a smidge tottery at times and I can’t help craving it had a more robust right hook but I sense it accomplishes everything it sets out to do refreshingly unconcerned with audience expectations.

With its antique setting, Gretel & Hansel fits right into the recent "provincial horror" movement, in the vein of other scary movies like The Witch and Apostle, of precarious, outmoded village societal mores crumbling from within.
