Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

The cautionary tale from your childhood becomes an adult slasher film, and we're offering you free tickets to the freak show

This event has finished

Ready for some candy-coated carnage? We hope so, because this February 6th Time Out Melbourne is inviting you to the tongue-in-cheek slasher freak show that is Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

Connected in the very loosest way to the traditional folk tale, this quirky interpretation drops in on an adult Hansel and Gretel many years after their original run-in with the witch of gingerbread-house fame. These days, the pair are vigilantes actively hunting witches as some kind of blood sport – until the hunter becomes the prey once more.

English saucepot Gemma Arterton and all-American boy Jeremy Renner provide the eye candy (see what we did there?) and with Will Ferrell as a producer, anything could happen.

This screening is now full.
