Hanzel and Gretel review

Colouring books become creepy

If you go down to the woods today… don’t stumble into the welcoming ‘House of Happy Children’, where car-crash victim Eun-Soon finds himself
forced to become guardian to three mysterious youngsters, whose tantrums herald terror.

Yim Pil-Sung’s disturbingly kitsch adult fairy tale is an intriguing genre-bender and you’ll definitely succumb toits enchantingly sinister art direction.

But it would need way more screams to measure up to real Korean shockers like A Tale Of Two Sisters. Don’t miss the death-dealing colouring books though, featuring the creepiest crayoning since the kid in The Ring got his drawing pad out.
