Me and my sister... we have a past. We almost died at the hands of a witch. But that past made us stronger. We'd gotten a taste of blood. Witch blood. And we haven't stopped since.

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.
