This is not a bad stoner movie, it's not as funny as some, Cheech & Chong in 'Up in Smoke' for instance (I'm too stoned to think of a newer film at the moment) but this is more about cannibalism and zombies than stoner fun. We start off with Gretel (Molly C. Quinn) and her boyfriend Ashton (Andrew James Allen) smoking this new kind of super-weed called Blackforrest. They inevitably get the munchies, so while Gretel cooks gingerbread men Ashton goes off to score some Blackforrest from Granny (Lara Flynn Boyle). Ashton runs in to very bad trouble at Granny's so Hansel (Michael Welch) and Gretel go searching and all the fun begins.
The acting is good throughout and the cast is pretty good too. I knew almost all the faces which for a low budget flick ($4.5 million) is good. Molly C Quinn is not a rookie but she's new to the big screen (I think she looks so like Deborah Ann Woll from True Blood) and surely has a bright future. Lara Flynn Boyle was excellent as the cannibal Granny and looked like she had fun playing an old evil woman who gets younger as the film progresses. Watch out for the two cops, you'll know them as soon as you see them.
I enjoyed this stoner, gangster, slasher, Zombie version of Hansel & Gretel and I'd like to know who decides which thing is going to get showcased each year. One minute it's romantic Vamps, then it's Zombies falling in love and now were being flooded with Hansel and bloody Gretel films, I mean, who decides these things?
