Sophia Lillis had to face on-screen horrors in her career, and there’s a lot more that is planned to come. After seen in It, It Chapter Two, and Sharp Objects, the new Gretel & Hansel trailer offers up a much deeper look at the 17-year-old’s journey through the woods for this even darker twist on a Brothers Grimm fairy tale.

The story of the two children, a brother and sister, who lose their way in the woods and find themselves at the candy-covered home of a cannibal witch. In this upcoming film, from director Osgood Perkins, Gretel (Lillis) is much older than her brother (Sammy Leakey) and the stakes feel higher.

After getting shunned out of their home, the kids venture into the woods in search of food and work. But the forest play tricks on the mind. Amid the dark trees, they find a cottage where an old woman, the witch in question (Carnival Row‘s Alice Krige), resides. Yes, it looks like she still feeds on children, but there’s another kind of allure to her.

“This is your power,” the witch tells the young teen, “to see what is hidden and to take it.”

“It’s awfully faithful to the original story, it’s got really only three principal characters: Hansel, Gretel, and the Witch,” Perkins previously told EW. “We tried to find a way to make it more of a coming of age story. I wanted Gretel to be somewhat older than Hansel, so it didn’t feel like two 12-year-olds — rather a 16-year-old and an 8-year-old. There was more of a feeling like Gretel having to take Hansel around everywhere she goes, and how that can impede one’s own evolution, how our attachments and the things that we love can sometimes get in the way of our growth.”

Gretel & Hansel will be ready to hit theaters on January 31.
