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 who 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 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

The pool of healing waters Mina & Hansel get into obviously has a man made edge with the water lapping over it as they move. See more »
[Hansel and Mina are bathing in a pool of healing waters]
I got it. You know, the last time I was in waters like this, I came across a formidable serpent witch. She mostly looked like a toad, but she could breathe underwater, which made her difficult to track. She was deadly.
[swims up to Hansel and silences him]
Shh. You talk too much.

The background of the ending credits shows the weapons used then fire, smoke and ashes flying around. See more »
Aside from more language, gore, sexual content, and a few extra lines, the extended version features a few extra scenes. They include scenes showing witches forcing children to eat frogs as part of their potion. The bar scene also shows Hansel awkwardly approaching a woman and getting rebuffed. The horned witch, while trying to be interrogated, reveals that she can also communicate with the red-haired witch when she needs help. The morning after the village attack, Sheriff Berringer blames the Mayor for the attack and kills him. The scene where the Sheriff and his goons attack Gretel is extended, is cut in between the scene where Mina heals Hansel, and shows that the men plan to rape her right before Edward kills them. Right after Hansel and Gretel behead Muriel, Ben (despite being a big fan of the siblings killing witches) throws up when he sees the decapitated head. See more »

Everyone Calm Down!!
In my opinion this is the type of movie to see if: 1)You love and support Jeremy Renner 2)You're in a mood to see cool but not overly flashy effects 3)Love for dark fairy tales 4)Awesome make up and costumes (the witches were very VERY well put together) 5)Just an all around chill movie with gore violence and cool effects
Don't see it if: 1)you expect high quality acting 2)Over the top graphics and effects 3)Complex plot line 4)Extremely witty script
Because Jeremy Renner was in big time movies, people are over analyzing this one. It's suppose to be fun with a hint of dark, and entertaining. I was very entertained. I also loved how it was only 88 minutes versus the 2-3 hour movies that have been coming out. I appreciated the toughness of Gemma in the film and Famke as head witch was genius. Overall it served it's purpose.
