Earlier today, Steve was walking the floor at the American Film Market (AFM).  There are plenty of genre films trying to get distribution, but there’s always one that stands out as the most bonkers, utterly ridiculous picture.  This year, the clear winner is Hansel and Gretel & The 420 Witch.  You can see the full poster after the jump along with some images, but I’ll briefly recap what this movie has going for it.  First it’s going to capitalize on Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, so already that market is cornered.  Everyone else will clearly be late to that party.  Also, 420 Witch is from the producers of Twilight, so now that audience is covered.  And what is the plot of this masterpiece?  It’s a modern take where the witch uses pot instead of candy to lure teenagers into her home.  That’s right, kids: pot, the mellowest illegal drug, can be used for sinister purposes.  I hope this is Reefer Madness for a new generation.  At the very least, we clearly have a movie with something for everyone (if everyone is the 12 morbidly curious people who seek out this flick; I might be one of them).

Hit the jump to check out the poster and images.

Here’s the official synopsis for Hansel and Gretel & The 420 Witch :

A contemporary spin on the classic German fairy tale “Hansel & Gretel” about a brother and sister who battle a witch who uses a special drug to lure teenagers into her home where she devours them to maintain her youth and beauty.
