Brother-sister duo Hansel and Gretel are professional witch hunters who help innocent villagers. But they soon stumble upon a case that could hold the key to their past.
Gemma Arterton suffered an injury when she sprained her ankle while running through the forest.
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.
Mina: Shh. You talk too much.
"Hansel" and "Gretel" are diminutive forms of "Hans" and "Greta" respectively. They are names that children use. As the children grew up, they would change to "Hans" and "Greta".
The background of the ending credits shows the weapons used then fire, smoke and ashes flying around.
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.
