The slowest paced movie I have ever encounter. I’d much rather sit in a room and watch paint dry. It was a total waist of my hard earned legal tender

l would like to say something positive about this movie but the only thing that comes to mind was the lights coming on at the end.

The beginning and the end had somewhat of a story, but the rest of the movie was very boring. There was nothing going on throughout.

A huge improvement for Oz in Cinematography, production design and score. The story just wasn't interesting. Hopefully his next project he can blend all these elements together to give us something great again.

Had potential but just did not deliver. It tried too hard and lost sight of the plot.

The first 5 minute and the last 5 minutes were the highlights of the movie. Felt bad for bringing my date to see this movie because she fell asleep.

This will be out on Redbox soon. I would wait or if you have the A list and some free time check it out. Other than that don’t waste your money paying full price!

Hugely underrated. Reminds me of “The Witch”. Though that movie had some unique strengths, I ultimately like “Gretel & Hansel” more. I like its ending more, as well. Visually stunning. Very creative. Deeply subconscious and archetypal. Masterful, in my opinion. Because of its simple plot, though, I give it 4 out of 5 stars. But a very strong 4. If you love film as art and not just entertainment, then you should try this movie!

Shortest movie I’ve ever seen that’s “scary”. Story line was super lame, not scary at all, and just really boring.

I really enjoyed "Gretel & Hansel". Most people likely went in expecting a jump scare filled horror film but this is far more like "The VVitch". It is a slow burn film full of creeps to make you squirm in your seat. Quite enjoyable if you go in with the right frame of mind. I definitely recommend it.

Oz Perkins‘s mystical, occult-heavy take on the classic folktale from the Brothers Grimm has so much style, and so many bold ideas, that it seems destined to become a cult classic someday – the type of film people find years from now and ask, “Why the hell haven’t I heard of this before?”

Gretel Hansel may alienate some horror movie fans with its extremely leisurely pacing and emphasis on atmosphere and mood rather than visceral shocks. But while the film certainly demands patience, it provides ample rewards with its lush stylization.

As a fantasy, Gretel Hansel is a delectably smart concoction, thoughtfully reevaluating the original tale, adding all-new layers of the ominous, and yet also keeping the story rooted in an amorphous, fairy tale past. As a horror movie, Perkins’ movie relies more on disquietude than external threat, and demands a thoughtful audience’s mental energies instead of a rowdy audience’s popcorn-spilling flinches.
