The notices with images of the missing children and rewards being offered that are attached to milk bottles are a reference to the campaign started in the 1980s where pictures of missing kids were printed on milk cartons. See more »
When Hansel and Gretel first arrive at the candy witch's lair as children, Gretel pulls off the end of one of the icing icicles to eat it. In the next few shots, the icicle is shown as intact when it should have a blunted end. See more »
The text of the newspaper clippings used in the opening credits is from Alexander Roberts' 1616 "A Treatise on Witchcraft". The same piece of text is used twice for different headlines. The repeated excerpt starts 'and of these in day of executions which she is no wise would condiscend'. See more »
If someone ever figures out the point of this film, don't bother telling me.
In 1812 Germany Hansel and Gretel run around hunting witches with everything from modern revolvers, pump shotguns, belt fed machines guns, and tasers. There's even a appearance by a phonograph. Oh yes, and pumpkins. Plenty of pumpkins around Halloween in Germany.
I could forgive all this historic silliness if the film had any entertainment value. It doesn't.
There's nothing really to say accept that this film is poorly made and is completely devoid of any plot, characters, or actors.
Why such a high rating on IMDb.com? Because as usual the studio's social media advertisers have fully infiltrated the page with fake reviews.
