Hollywood cannot keep up with our demand for dark and gritty reimaginings of beloved fairy tales. The last few years have given us Terry Gilliam’s The Brothers Grimm, Twilight’s Snow White and the Huntsman, and now Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is a movie in which Hansel now suffers from witch-candy-induced diabetes (“Hansel is also inflicted with…”sugar sickness” — and periodically slumps into a coma until he self-administers an injection through his britches). There is no turning back. Every year will bring darker and grittier fairy tales, until they become so dark it is impossible to watch them without night-vision goggles. Here is a taste of what we have to look forward to:
