A long time ago in a distant fairy tale countryside, a young girl leads her little brother into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil.

There are quite a few interesting ideas in Osgood Perkins Gretel and Hansel, making its botched execution all the more frustrating.  Effectively atmospheric and sporting a solid cast, this fairy tale reboot is visually one of the creepiest movies of the last decade.  It also happens to be one of the slowest as Perkins’ deliberate approach to the material generates impatience rather than tension, the glacial pacing being the overriding obstacle to being swept away by what could have been an interesting and rewarding genre variation.
