hansel & gretel

In the event you didn’t already know, Dee Wallace is a delight. Attaining popularity through performances in a number of now classic horror films, The Hills Have Eyes and The Howling just for starters, Dee has become one of the totemic genre stars. Her personae is tender, dynamic, and entirely specific to her personality; complete with a comedic sense of self-deprecation and a natural confidence that permeates her roles and extending toward her work as acting coach. Dee was generous enough to give us some time to discuss her career, her latest role in the Asylum mock-buster Hansel and Gretel, and what she hopes to see herself doing in the future.

When I was just a young little lad I use to sit up at night and wonder “hey what ever happened to those two little scamps Hansel and Gretel?”. Much like everyone else I always assumed they turned to a life of drugs and prostitution. But Tommy Wirkola decided they most likely went another rout, they turned into witch hunters.
