AIP With a Hammer Feel
A demented widow (Shelley Winters) lures unsuspecting children into her mansion in a bizarre “Hansel and Gretel” twist.
I am not a big fan of Shelley Winters. Frankly, I don’t really understand how she became anybody. But I do love AIP, and I absolutely adore both Jimmy Sangster and Curtis Harrington (whose “Night Tide” is a true horror gem). These gentlemen have brought the Hammer touch to AIP, making this film both British (in a good way), but still that same cult AIP style we love.
And even better is the “Hansel and Gretel” idea. Some legends and fairy tales have been done to death, but this one has not. And furthermore, it puts children in the danger zone — the scene of this film with the guillotine had me on the edge of my seat wondering if they had the guts to go all the way.
