A Teaser for Syfy's Gretl: Witch Hunter

14 February 2012 1:45 PM, PST | | See recent Dread Central news »

Syfy's website and the teaser trailer that debuted today have different names for this film, but for now we'll stick with Gretl: Witch Hunter. Look for it on Saturday, February 25th, at 9/8c.

Gretl: Witch Hunter (or Witchslayer Gretl), written by Brook Durham (Red: Werewolf Hunter), stars Shannen Doherty, Paul McGillion, and Emilie Ullerup.


Twenty years after his encounter with the witch, a grown-up Hansel returns to the haunted forest, seeking revenge. But there's a surprise waiting - his sister Gretel (whom he thought had been killed) is the witch's protégé.

Syfy’s Swamp Volcano Erupts This Weekend; Haunted Forest Double Feature Slated for February

26 January 2012 12:35 AM, PST | | See recent Dread Central news »

Tired of seeing New York and Los Angeles get destroyed on film? Wish disaster movies could find a different metropolis to reduce to rubble? This weekend’s Swamp Volcano unleashes a lava storm on Miami. And then a month from now you can take a double-dip trip to the black forest of fairy tales in two back-to-back Syfy original premieres: Black Forest and Gretl: Witch Hunter.

Hollywood’s renewed fascination with fractured takes on classic fairy tales sure came out of nowhere, didn’t it? Now it’s everywhere on big and small screens. February 25th will see Syfy getting in on the craze with a pair of unhappily ever afters making their world premieres as part of a Saturday night double feature.

First up at 7/6 Cst is Black Forest from director Patrick Dinhut (Dead & Deader) and screenwriter Frank H. Woodward (Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown).
