* ArtisticLicenseBiology: You While a witch's candy might be cursed to cause anyone who eats it to die from "sugar sickness" if they miss an injection (of presumably insulin), you can't get insulin-dependent diabetes from eating too much mundane, non-enchanted sugar unless you gain a lot of weight, like two hundred pounds. And pounds, and even if you could, a regular diabetic can go for several days without insulin.

* TruerToTheText: Played with. The opening sequence with Hansel and Gretel as children is one of the rare examples of a fairytale adaptation that doesn't spare the horror and brutality of the original. The ''rest'' of the film, on the other hand...



* VengeanceFeelsEmpty: Subverted. [[spoiler: At the end, Hans narrates how even though revenge won't change the past or bring their parents back, it still feels pretty damn good.]]

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: The real town of Augsburg has never looked anything like the small village the movie takes place in. A prospering rich center of trade would be much closer to reality. It was so large that it would periodically be the seat of the Imperial Diet (the General Assembly of the Empire). Furthermore, Augsburg not only had its own military, but contained a key base for the Holy Roman Empire. Thus was literally crammed with soldiers, [[spoiler:The Witches attacking it before they gained immortality would have been suicidal.]] Also, whike he movie was correct in that Augsburg was surrounded by forests, the Lech River which runs through the town is completely missing.

** Considering that the witches were essentially bulletproof and could attack from the skies with their brooms, it's more like it'd be suicide for the soldiers.
