To time with the release of HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS on DVD, ‘Terracotta Film Club’ offers the chance to watch the South Korean adaptation of HANSEL AND GRETEL at the cinema.

YIM Phil-sung’s twisted version is a dark modern age fairy tale for adults, spinning the original Grimm fairytale on its head.

“Lavish cinematography makes this K-horror a ravishingly kitsch watch and the child actors are fabulously creepy.” – Metro
