So another fairy tale is given a new lease of life on the big screen. With it being an MTV production you half know what to expect. If you liked Van Helsing you’ll enjoy it, and if you like Japanese horror / Samurai films with endless blood splatter you’ll enjoy it. The different types, even species, of witches that they came up with for this one are phenomenal and the make-up and costumes are amazing. The design of some of the weaponry is impressive as well. Whilst it is all about fighting the witches and not too much thinking, Hansel & Gretel is, for the non-squeamish of you out there, a couple of hours of fun in a fantasy world you’ve never explored.
