HANSEL & GRETEL - WITCH HUNTERS is an action adventure horror film based on the Grimm brothers' fairy tale characters, in which they have become witch hunters employed to recover missing children.

Violence

The film contains strong violence and gore throughout, including a man being ripped apart, a man exploding into a bloody mess, a man's head being squashed into a splash of blood, a witch being sliced into several pieces as she flies into a network of wires strung between trees, and a witch being decapitated with a shovel.

The film also includes use of strong language ('f**k'). Moderate and mild language in the film includes the terms 'whore', 'bitch', 'shit', 'hell' and 'damned'. There is also a scene of sexualised but brief female nudity as a young woman walks into a pool of healing waters. Hansel is also seen injecting himself in the leg with a large syringe, but it is made clear that this is treatment for diabetes, the result of eating too much candy as a child.
