Writer-director Tommy Wirkola’s style is one that will either delight you with its over-the-top gore and sick brand of humor, or will disgust you for the same reasons.  I’m happily in the former camp.  My first introduction to Wirkola’s work was the fantastic original film Dead Snow – two words: Nazi zombies.  While I missed his broader effort Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters when it opened in theaters, last night I had the opportunity to attend the premiere of the film in all of its uncut glory.  The film may not have found its audience stateside, but the global box office of nearly $225 million gives hope that Wirkola will be around for future efforts.  Perhaps the unrated cut version of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, available now on digital platforms and due out on Blu-ray/DVD on June 11th, will find more of a home with American audiences.  For my review of that particular cut, which features 12 minutes of previously-unseen bloody and violent footage, hit the jump.
