6 | Leave the kids at home for this one this revisionist take on the classic fairy tale is an entertaining blend of horror and humour that is as gory as it is vulgar
What you may or may not remember about the Brothers Grimm' story is over and done with in the first ten minutes of...
When Ben is taking care of Gretel, he brings her porridge and says that it's "not too hot, not too cold, but just right," thus making reference to another classic fairy tale story, "Goldilocks and the Three Bears."
We learned a couple of things while we were trapped in that house. One, never walk in to a house made of candy. And two, if you're gonna kill a witch, set her ass on fire.
At the beginning of the movie when Hansel and Gretel are fighting the witch in the woods Hansel grabs the witch and slams her down on a log behind him. When the witch starts to back away from Hansel the log is in two parts with about 2 to 3 feet between pieces. In the very next shot the log pieces are almost touching with a thin gap. As Gretel locks the witch in place in the air the log is back to a wide gap of 2 to 3 feet.
