We’re used to seeing Dee Wallace as the heroine being terrorized in a myriad of horror films. A new take on the classic fairy tale Hansel & Gretel will let her do the terrorizing for a change, and she may have worse things is store for the brother and sister besides cannibalism.
With the absurd looking Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters set to put a new spin on the classic fairy tale, it’s not surprising The Asylum would want to get in on the action with its own version.
In this modern retelling of the classic horror tale, teen siblings are enslaved by a psychotic recluse within her gruesome house of horrors in the woods.
Dee Wallace (Gremlins, Cujo, The Howling) stars as the horrifying hermit who traditionally has questionable culinary intentions directed at the famous siblings when they make the grave mistake of entering her humble abode.
Brent Lydic (Headless Horseman) and Stephanie Greco (The Haunting of Whaley House) play the titular brother and sister. Anthony Ferrante (Boo) directs from a script by Jose Prendes (The Haunting of Whaley House).
The Asylum has its version of Hansel & Gretel slated for release on Tuesday, January 8, 2013: just a few days before the January 13th big screen release date of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.
