More Movie Taglines:
- Classic Tale New Twist
- Revenge is sweeter than candy.
- Hansel: Some people will say that not all witches are evil, that their powers could be used for good. I say burn them all!
Gretel: [Pointing gun at camera] I hate to break this to you, but this isn't gonna be an open casket.
Hansel: [to Mina and Ben, as they approach the witch's house] Whatever you do, don't eat the fuckin' candy.
Muriel: [picks up a missing child poster] I see you got my invitation.
Gretel: Say your name before my arrows rip out your throat.
- Diane Kruger, Eva Green and Noomi Rapace were considered to play Gretel, but Gemma Arterton eventually got cast.
In an interview with Famke Janssen at Cannes 2011, she stated that she took her role as the head witch because she had to pay off her mortgage. Janssen has stated multiple times that since 2007, she was prepping her writing/directorial debut "Bringing up Bobby", where funding and distribution had gone through hard times, partly due to the 2008 economic crisis. She also had not done much acting in that period of time.
Not screened in advance for critics.
In the movie, Hansel is diabetic as a result of his experience in the gingerbread house as a child. In the original script, Gretel was also supposed to have an eating disorder as a result of her childhood trauma, but it was cut from the final version.
One of Berringer's deputies.
