YMMV: Hansel and Gretel

The original story:

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Humperdinck's opera.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • In the stop-motion Hansel and Gretel: An Opera Fantasy, the siblings hear an ominous chorus ("Children, children, are you not afraid?"), then they see something moving through the trees, then they see glimmering eyes on a tree (really a birch tree), a willow stump grinning at them, a will'-o-the-wisp (Gretel hoped it was a real lantern and real people who can help them), and then Gretel sees ghosts ("shadowy women") coming towards them.
    • In the Cannon Movie Tales version, as Hansel and Gretel got lost deep into the woods, they hear mock laughter and then an eerie shriek. They hear their names whisper in the dark and a witch's cackle they sit near a camp fire.
    • In the Humperdinck's opera, when the kids were calling out, voices answer back.
    Hansel: WHO'S THEREEEEE??
    Echo: You there! There!

    Gretel: Is someone there?
    Echo: Where? Here!

The Korean film:

  • Tastes Like Diabetes - The house is made to be like this. It is, after all, conceived from the children's minds.
