Last time in the genre of horror has become a popular theme of the evil witch. For the past few months in the Russian hire left "Hansel and Gretel: hunters on witches", "the Lords of Salem", "the Witches of Zugarramurdi", and here again the old story for a new way. Generally it is not the last adaptation of the tales of the brothers Grimm, dated 2013, that in General, it is not surprising, because the original story gives fruitful soil for violent fantasies. But we are going to speculate, but go to the debriefing that offers us in his version of Duane Journey — the identity of a hitherto unknown, but which we can congratulate quite successful debut.

So, forget about flying brooms, dense forests and gingerbread houses. Although... no, not sure, because these and other symbolic elements in one or another form will appear on screen, paying tribute to the great source. Exactly how, say later, but while introducing a new story: at the 21st century where modern children instead of sweets eat ..... marijuana. Or rather, sniffing. And apparently, the the witch brave brother and sister was once thrown in the oven does not died of year year and continued their nefarious deeds. But time goes by, needs change and to cater to the desires of the present generation, advanced lady decides to grow yourself the basement, a greenhouse, a hallucinogenic herb, and very quickly gaining credibility with local stoners. Once in house for friendly old lady, young men is your favorite weed risk to be a victim of flesh-eating witches for a special ritual, she returns former youth (very reminiscent of another famous tale).

Somewhere in the first ten minutes we will show very unpleasant scene of violence with the first victim of the cunning Hotties, after which a movie on the law can be attributed to torture-horror meat! In further bloody mess the plot is not particularly sharpened, but all action time and again will move in house of hell, filled with sinister potions and the aforementioned hotbeds of magical herbs, the minimizing the most boring and mostly empty dialogues. And up the mansion is a lot of dangerous surprises! Besides being a tempting hemp has quite a specific name the "Dark forest," according to the witch's clicking her dense spreading thickets start to secrete intoxicating smoke, and also used as impenetrable trap for escaped captives. Well, what is not reference to the original fairy tale, in which Hansel and Gretel are not could find his way home in more dense? Add to this bestiary venerable black Doberman with bright red eyes, perfect guard demonic basement that caring owner generously lure the remains of the human flesh, but also, note that the feral zombie servants that old hag, according to apparently, "blind" from the drained corpses. Yeah and the ogress will show amazing skills of hospitality and seduction (especially when younger), just out of young fresh hands of the carcass, and exposing the mask of the beast will willingly bleed their prey. Gourmets will remain satisfied!

Special mention deserves the potential "meat" uspevaya for screen time remembered total okurivanie, arrogant and thuggish tendencies. Oh it is an amazing feeling when I look at the faces of slutty drug addicts and parasites with special reverence waiting for the moment when W all of them have a good gut. You could even say that movie — a kind of appeal to a healthy lifestyle and throwing all sorts of toxic drugs, artificially creating a sense of fun and buzz, or your soul, as well as and inside, will gradually rot, turning the body in the walking dead. And even the result is a paradox: to survive in the picture is not particularly anyone, not what for all deserve, but still curious to know what other "skeletons in the closet" hidden in homes for the bloodthirsty biznesmeni, and whether to do something the police response to numerous guidance from the parties frivolous youth (here, by the way, we also get a small break from the pattern in the genre of horror).

In General, I want to praise the painting for that she is trying to be something not really is a straight line shows everything that is stated in the trailer, every time inviting viewers to visit Granny-addict on "festive feast". Simple but with style! At all of his brutality and cruelty of some scenes, what is happening is perceived more with the irony that hurts eccentric behavior of the characters in the decision-making (one of the scenes, you can see cool made-up Cary Elvis), so and absurd, but the funny situations, like eating one of the hungry girlfriends scattered in the maze of candy, pointing the way to output — again, waving a pen bread crumbs from  tales of 1812. The only and probably the most important question: at what here, actually, Hansel and Gretel? Or, more precisely: a where are they? The main line of the story are the search for the sister of his friend, but the girl practically all the time looms on the background about brother, missing a large part of the duration, and say nothing. Actors as Central characters, and even more brother and sister who need to show a strong sibling relationship with each other — fail, however, it rather the fault of the writers, clearly not to prescribe the characters.

Result. Youth-butcher horror story with predictable and flimsy finale, all the basic plot of which revolves around the old "God dandelion", and her home surprises. Came original and bloody interpretation of the old children's story with funny, sometimes vulgar, humour and a light narrative. It is a pity that not have developed a fantasy of the full program with event missing a spark and charging power, which was to come from the characters. In General — fit movie viewing which perhaps will encourage you to abandon bad habits!
