Hansel & Gretel Get Baked (2013)

With my vacation finally here, it was time to start it with some movies. While I grabbed a few flicks at the Family Video Store, there was one that really perked my interest. Hansel & Gretel Get Baked from 2013.

Plot/ A brother and sister battle a witch who lures teenagers into her suburban home with her special blend of marijuana where she then proceeds to kill and eat them to maintain her youth and beauty.

When I grabbed this, I initially thought it was going to be some type of indie stoner flick. What I found though, was an interesting take on the Hansel & Gretel fairy tale. This horror-comedy has many moments and is a lot of fun. Yes, it isn't side-splitting comedy, but its fun. The cast works well together and the scripting is solid with the cannibal /zombie / rejuvenation storyline flowing perfectly. The acting is good, the cinematography straight and the effects fall into place to add something to the comedic flair. Is it a perfect movie, no way, but it is a creative twist on a classic tail and one that should be given a chance.
