Storyline

The siblings Hansel and Gretel are left alone in the woods by their father and captured by a dark witch in a candy house. However they kill the witch and escape from the spot. Years later, the orphans have become famous witch hunters. When eleven children go missing in a small village, the Mayor summons Hansel and Gretel to rescue them, and they save the red haired Mina from the local sheriff that wants to burn her accusing Mina of witchcraft. Soon they discover that the Blood Moon will approach in three days and the powerful dark witch Muriel is the responsible for the abduction of children. She intends to use the children together with a secret ingredient in a Sabbath to make the coven of witches protected against the fire. Meanwhile Hansel and Gretel disclose secrets about their parents. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Just Plain Bad
30 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
