Posted by Joseph Lee on 11.06.2012
Shock Till You Drop reports that Lionsgate Home Entertainment is taking a page out of The Asylum's book and releasing a knock-off of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters three days before the film arrives in theaters.
They will release the DVD of Hansel & Gretel: Warriors of Witchcraft on January 22. Booboo (Twilight and his sister Fivel Stewart will star. The film is directed by David DeCoteau (Puppet Master III, Creepozoids).
Here's a synopsis: The two play Jonah and Ella Mazer (Hansel and Gretel) were happy, normal teenagers sent to an elite boarding school. The Head Master, Sebastian, seems to know more about the brother and sister than they know about themselves. As both get to know their high school classmates, strange and frightening things begin to happen. When their new friends explain that they are all descendant from powerful witches and that they've been waiting for Hansel and Gretel to join them and complete a new generation of the coven, both refuse to believe them. It's not until Hansel discovers a message from his mother in an old leather-bound book of spells hidden in the school library, that he understands their true and dangerous destiny – slaying witches.
