Watch Hansel & Gretel, Robert Eggers’ debut short film from 2007

Yet another reminder to never set foot in the woods.

Long before the release of 2015 The witch set Robert eggs On the map, the writer/director/production designer made a slightly different witch debut with his first short film, an adaptation of the Brothers Grimm tale Hansel and Gretel.

Early traces of the work he would do over the next decade are evident, from the obvious, overt rural menace to the wordless dread that accompanies characters as they sink deeper and deeper into terrible danger.

The introduction of the witch of the story is strikingly reminiscent of a nightmarish scene The witchwith Hansel and GretelAlso, the demonic form of was first presented through shadowy glimpses while awaiting victims in the mud of her forest home.
