MPAA Rated R for strong fantasy horror violence and gore, brief sexuality/nudity and language

Sex & Nudity

  • A woman strips before entering the lake. We see her full body nude from the rear with her buttocks clearly visible, she turns to her left and you see her breasts for a few seconds.
  • A man and a woman sit together in water, it's implied that they are both naked. They kiss, and have sex.
  • The cut of the corset reveals some cleavage. A young man is helping a woman who is resting after an accident. He washes her face and neck/upper chest with a wet cloth, then she wakes up and notices he has been staring at her cleavage.
  • A man threatens to rape a woman. His pants become undone.
  • A witch insults brother and sister by saying they should better "go f*** themselves" or "each other".

Violence & Gore

  • The Uncut & Unrated version is even more graphically violent than the already very brutal theatrical release and features extended fight scenes, more vulgar language, and even more blood and gore
  • A woman is stabbed in the stomach. Children lock the witch in a burning oven.
  • Ropes pull a man's arms and legs off.
  • A man decapitates several witches.

  • A troll charges out of the woods and bashes a man's head in.
  • Witches are shot, stabbed, beaten, sliced, diced, mangled etc.
  • A man explodes as blood and guts cover the surrounding people.
  • Witches fly through sharp wires and are cut into pieces graphically.
  • A witch is hung from her feet and beaten.
  • Witches force children to swallow maggots. Witches consume blood with some stuff in it (possibly children's intestines) from bowls.
  • In a flashback we see a man being hanged.
  • A witch holds another witch's hand in a fire to see if they are immune to burning.


  • Unlike most Fantasy movies, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters contains frequent use of strong profanity.
  • Numerous f-words.
