Hansel & Gretel are bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world. As the fabled Blood Moon approaches, the siblings encounter a new form of evil that might hold a secret to their past.
Despite portraying brother and sister of close ages, Jeremy Renner (Hansel) is actually fifteen years older than Gemma Arterton (Gretel).
Some people will say that not all witches are evil, that their powers could be used for good. I say burn them all!
When Hansel and Gretel first arrive at the candy witch's lair as children, Gretel pulls off the end of one of the icing icicles to eat it. In the next few shots, the icicle is shown as intact when it should have a blunted end.
The text of the newspaper clippings used in the opening credits is from Alexander Roberts' 1616 "A Treatise on Witchcraft". The same piece of text is used twice for different headlines. The repeated excerpt starts 'and of these in day of executions which she is no wise would condiscend'.
