Have you ever had actual gingerbread? It’s an abomination against all things edible. I’d say it comes as no surprise that witches live in houses constructed of such a terrible excuse for confectionary. And no, it doesn’t even have the redeeming property of making good walls for an edible house. The walls sag, get soggy. No, there are only two proper structural elements for such a house: fudge cut into blocks and used as bricks, or chocolate chip cookies baked into thick sheets. Oh, there’s a movie trailer too.

No that is a fantastically fun trailer. It doesn’t just have the swagger and action, so much as manages to hint at actual plot without giving away the entire shebang. Plus there are little touches scattered throughout. The medieval milk bottles with children’s faces? Brilliant.

It feels like a latter day Army of Darkness, and might just wash the taste of Solomon Kane and Van Helsing out of our gingerbread scorched throats.
