A young girl, Gretel (Sophia Lillis), leads her little brother, Hansel (Sam Leakey), into the woods in search of food and shelter. They come across a woman named Holda (Alice Krige) who claims that she wants to help the children, but Gretel senses that there is something evil about the woman. Gretel & Hansel Website

What to Watch For: The title was changed from the traditional title Hansel and Gretel because, according to the director, they wanted to make Gretel older and the leader of the two.

Word on the Street: Actress Alice Krige is well known for playing the Borg Queen in the Star Trek series.

My Take: Actress Sophia Lillis played Beverly Marsh in the film It (2017).

The film opens nationwide on Friday.
