“The film reminded me a lot of an episode of Charmed but with more gore. The special effects are just as bad as Charmed but I could sense the same vibe between both even though in this film the witches are the evil bitches! The humour for me is what made the film watchable…” Daniel K, Horror News


Hansel Vs. Gretel may not be a brilliant film but it’s certainly an entertaining one. The gore is great and the action is handled well. Interestingly, It was written by Jose Prendes, the same person who penned the enjoyable Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark.” Nav Qateel, Influx Magazine
