Hansel and Gretal: Witch Hunters review

With Kount Kreepy on vacation at some nice island somewhere I guess it's up to me to keep with hearth fire burning on this here blog.

Hansel and Gretel With Hunters is brought to us from the same guy who did Dead Snow ,Thomas Wirkola, (and upcoming Dead Snow:War of the Dead) as the writer and director.

 This movie kicks ass, has great gore and effects, some good laughs and generally rocks!

 The film starts off with the Hansel (Jeremy Renner)and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) we all know from fairy tales but gets a bit Tarantino after that. Fast forward 15 years later with Hansel and Gretal hunting down witches until they get hired by a town to find out what's happened to the town's children that have gone missing and eventually unravel a plot involving a Grand Evil Witch (Famke  Jennsen )and her coven seeking..... see the movie I won't spoil it.

There's quite a big nod to the "Steampunk" genre here as well through some really cool gadgets and gizmo's in the witch hunters arsenal and it works with the atmosphere of the movie. There is also a sequel in the works and I for one am looking forward to it! Rotten Tomatoes hated it so fuck them. Chances are if you read this blog on a regular basis then you know this will be a fun movie. If your looking for deep meanings and superb acting and some lah dee dah crap this aint your movie. If your looking for some action/adventure and kicking some supernatural ass, this will satisfy! -Evil von Scarry
