Hansel and Gretel- Witch Hunters Review

This movie was a fun and gory romp reminiscent of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead in tone or Tarantino’s magnum opus From Dusk ’til Dawn.

The story isn’t exactly amazing, the time period is rather muddled, and it looks like they stole some of the wardrobe and props from that disastrous Van Helsing movie.

When it first came out I remember hearing about Anti-Witch messages. Anyone who makes that argument clearly has never seen the movie. This isn’t Wicca, it’s not nearly deep enough to even make a passing subtext at such things. Vampires and Werwolves have been taken by supernatural romance so Hollywood is running out of monsters to rehash.

My rating: Grab some popcorn, don’t think too hard and enjoy.
