Two Michael Myers veterans – one survivor and one victim – will be re-teaming for another go ’round of brutal murder and madness, albeit far, far away from Haddonfield, Illinois this time. Will they have better luck, or will neither of them see the final reel?
Marianne Hagan (Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers) and Kristina Klebe (Rob Zombie’s Halloween) will topline Bread Crumbs, a vicious take on the Hansel & Gretel fairy tale that freaked me the hell out as a young lad.
Spotlight Films is behind the horror flick written and directed by Mike Nichols (a different Mike Nichols). But the premise has to be among the most twisted and inspired that’s come across our desks lately:
Once upon a time … Angie, an aging star, reluctantly goes on one last shoot for a seedy producer, on location, in an enchanting old cabin deep in the shadowy forest. While on the shoot the cast and crew encounter Henry and his little sweet sister, Patti, two strange and mysterious children who seem to live in the woods.
A violent attack on the second evening of shooting sends Angie and the rest of the crew into a frightened frenzy. They lock themselves into their secluded cabin and find themselves trapped and surrounded by an unknown assailant. Could the two children be responsible for these vicious attacks?
After witnessing a horrible slaying, Billy, the handsome lead, takes Patti hostage as a means of gaining leverage against the unknown killer. This proves to be a fatal mistake as, one by one, the crew is horrifically slaughtered until only Patti, Angie, and Henry remain, resulting in a chilling final showdown between the three that ends in a terrifying conclusion.
In this fairy tale of terror the classic fable of ‘Hansel & Gretel’ is re-imagined into a visual enchantment of good and evil … eat the candy, if you dare.
