Directed by Duane Journey, Black Forest: Hansel and Gretel & The 420 Witch updates the Grimm Brothers’ classic fairytale to modern-day Pasadena. Except now the forest is an immense indoor hydroponic marijuana farm. So naturally some liberties have been taken with the existing text. It’s being described as a bit Edgar Wright and a bit Pineapple Express but very gory.
The film is “about a brother and sister who battle a witch that uses a special drug to lure teenagers into her suburban home where she devours them to maintain her youth and beauty.”
Written by David Tillman and produced by Dark Highway Films, Black Forest stars Molly Quinn (“Castle”), Michael Welch (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse), Lara Flynn Boyle (“Twin Peaks”, Men In Black II) and introduces Bianca Saad.
