Since Halloween is almost here and magic and sorcery continues to have a foothold in my brain, I couldn't resist reading this classic again. I realize everyone recalls the creepy children's tale, but when was the last time you read it? Why do I ask? Well, because most original fairy tales (minus the Disney angle) are disturbingly dark--like I like it. Who doesn't want to eat little children? Muhwahhhh! Better yet, what parent hasn't thought about dropping their kids off in the middle of the forest to fend for themselves? Heh. Heh. Like I said, Hansel and Gretel wonderfully paints a freakishly good picture of what witches in classic literature represent: pure unadulterated evil. #lovedit!
Did you know...
Paramount Pictures is scheduled to release their take on the classic tale--Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters in early 2013. Check out the bad ass movie trailer below featuring Jeremy Renner (yum!) as Hansel and Gemma Arterton as Gretel. Damn, I hope Hollywood doesn't disappoint.
Did you love H&G as much as I did? Which tale is your fav from Grimm? Did you like the movie trailer?
