Hansel and Gretel: Witch hunters (2013)

Hansel and Gretel kill their witch, grow up, and kill more witches for a living.

The gimmick: Modern horror aesthetics prevail. Expect plenty of gore, evisceration, and decapitation. Punctuated with F-bombs.

It's a film with an aesthetic, searching for the right script. I haven't seen such unimaginative writing, nor such an offensively anti-female, unironic fantasy film for a long time.
