Film / Hansel & Gretel Get Baked

Go To

A 2013 independent film that's based on the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale. In fact, it's Hansel and Gretel WITH POT!

Once upon a time, there was a brother and sister named Hansel (Michael Welch) and Gretel (Molly Quinn). Gretel and her boyfriend Ashton (Andrew James Allen) are potheads who've just stumbled upon a special blend called Black Forest, made by a little old lady from Pasadena (Lara Flynn Boyle). Ashton decides to get a stash straight from the old lady...and that's when the trouble begins. Eventually, Gretel goes on a mission to save her boyfriend...only to get drawn into a terrifying struggle with a witch with a bad case of the munchies.

After awhile in Development Hell (actually, Distribution Hell; the movie was pretty much finished but couldn't find a distributor due to the subject matter), the film was released on DVD in early 2013 by Tribeca Films. The film became available on Netflix in August 2013.
