This is an interesting proposition. Earlier, content creators were looking at re-creating horror movies of yore. Its an open secret that the fairy tales that we read today are a very toned-down version of the actual tales – which were full of horror and terror components. That’s not to say that this is a first. Many authors, including there’s a book, Carthik’s Unfairy Tales, that adds a twist to the fairy tales of yore.
Hansel and Gretel hits theaters on January 31, 2020.
