With Gretel & Hansel now cooking up scares on the big screen, Heather Wixson is joined by a very special guest from the new horror film on this episode of Corpse Club!

To celebrate the release of Gretel & Hansel, Heather Wixson is joined by director Osgood Perkins on this special episode of Corpse Club! Listen as Perkins discusses his new take on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, including the film's haunting visuals, the subversive script by Rob Hayes, the story's reflections of how society mistreats women, and the powerful performances by Alice Krige and Sophia Lillis. Perkins also reflects on directing his previous horror films The Blackcoat's Daughter and I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House. So, whether you grew up reading Grimm fairy tales or you're following the trail of bread crumbs for the first time, sit back, relax, and enjoy this special episode of Daily Dead's official podcast!
