Hansel & Gretel Get Baked (2013)

Director: Duane Journey

Stars: Molly C. Quinn, Michael Welch, Lara Flynn Boyle, Cary Elwes

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.

Here is an interesting version of the children's story of Hansel and Gretel. In this one, Gretel and her boyfriend are stoners with her brother Hansel is just there to give her hell. It is an odd take on the story, but nothing is safe now.

I'll start with the good parts of the movie. The special effects and the death and dismemberment scenes were really good. I was not expecting that at all in this movie. There was fake blood and guts just dripping in some scenes. I really did like that. Some of the effects were a bit cheesy, but the good ones made up for the bad ones.

The bad parts of the movie were many. There was almost no story at all. It was really about a witch that sold pot, then she killed young people to become young again. That was it. That is why this is nothing but a B-movie. The acting was not that good at all.

There is really only one member of the cast to really talk about, and that is Lara Flynn Boyle. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. She had it all, looks and fame. She just decided to get some really bad plastic surgery, and she screwed up her face forever. She was in great movies and a hit TV show. Now, she is having to be in movies like this. I bet she is proud of this movie. Goodness.

This movie is worth watching once, but I just do not know about watching more than that. This is one of those movie that You could just skip it. I watched it, so you don't have to.
