The film opens on a bombastic overture and a stiltedly staged group text that will retroactively become important. We are then whisked onto a luxury jet where the liberal rich are feted and random poor conservatives from different parts of the country have been drugged and tucked out-of-sight in the back of the plane. The next scene opens on the kidnapped victims waking up gagged and heading towards a mysterious box in a field, like the cornucopia from “The Hunger Games.” Once their restraints are off and the shooting begins, the most dangerous game’s afoot.
With “It’s” Sophia Lillis in the lead role, Gretel & Hansel has switched the order of those titular names for a reason. In this version, Gretel is a diaphanous, wise-eyed 16-year-old, and her brother Hansel (Sammy Leakey) is a cute but helpless eight-year-old whom she’s been tasked with protecting. Set in a geographically unspecified storybook realm – British accents, like modern idioms, cycle in and out of usage – these two have been left to fend for themselves after their father dies and their mother slips into a deprivation-related madness, ordering her children off to the woods.
This horror drama is based on the 2013 novel of the same name by Stephen King, a sequel to King’s 1977 novel The Shining. Years following the events of The Shining, a now-adult Dan Torrance must protect a young girl with similar powers from a cult known as The True Knot, who prey on children with powers to remain immortal. Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran (in her feature film debut), and Cliff Curtis also stars. 
This supernatural film is a sequel to the 2017 film IT based on the famous book by acclaimed and beloved writer Stephen King. It stars Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, and Andy Bean. It tells a story of an ancient shape-shifting cosmic entity who returns to the city of Derry, Maine every 27 years to feed on children. Would the group of now grown up misfits be able to defeat IT just like when they were children?
