The original Hansel and Gretel story is a pretty dark fairy tale. This is basically a darker version with a similar concept but mainly different story overall. It's a dark horror movie with vivid and bright colors. The plot is about some guy who gets into a car accident and finds a young mysterious girl when he wakes up, she soon takes him to her family home. Which is a very fairy tale like home, even the inside of the home as well with bunch of sweets. Soon things start to get really creepy, especially the 3 children, one of them being especially annoying. The characters in this is pretty awkward at times, but it doesn't take away from the movie, but adds more mystery around it. The film is pretty cliché at first and predictable, but as the film goes on and on, it gets pretty good and entertaining to some degree. And at least the mystery of what is going on kept me interested, since I wanted to find out what is exactly going on. So the script is passable and is pretty decent, but could have been stronger especially in the beginning where it started to become a bit dull and dragged out a bit as well. Despite some flaws, there are still some good aspect in this movie as well. The set up is done pretty well and the cinematography is beautiful to look at, at times.
