Stories about witches have fascinated people since prehistoric times. They represent the pure evil, and - must be killed. The Hänsel and Gretel fairy tale recorded by the Brothers Grimm 200 years ago is usually the first horror story we listen to, often long before we can read and write. Nobody ever forgets the two abandoned kids, alone in the forest, that get caught by a terrible witch that wants to eat them and fattens them up beforehand. Pure terror.
So we here at The Slingshot Channel have been very excited when we saw the announcements about a new movie that takes a new look at the ancient story: Hansel and Gretel, Witch Hunters!
