    8 Questions You'll Ask Yourself During "Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters"

    Don't eat the f*cking candy. If Hansel and Gretel is wrong, I don't want to be right.

    What do you get when you take the director of Dead Snow and give him free reign over Grimm's Fairy Tales and a liberal amount of fake blood? Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. It's been universally panned by critics for being a gory mess of a parody but well-liked enough by moviegoers to take No. 1 at the box office. Analysts chalk up its inexplicable win to a lackluster roster of films to choose from, but they're obviously underestimating the appeal of a black comedy full of absurdity, expletives, and excessive gore.

    This film delivers campy perfection, living up to the incredibly high low expectations.
