This movie should have come out closer to Halloween. It is perfect for the folks that like all the special effects that were very inventive. Of course the tale revolves around the legendary fairytales slyly injected into the storyline. Will Grimm (Damon) and Jake (Ledger) are con-men traveling around during the Napoleon Era vanquishing monsters and demons for quick money. They have cleverly staged the ghostly attacks in advance in order to convince the town to hire them. But their deeds get the attention of the French general (Pryce) who makes them exorcise a forest hamlet whose little girls have been disappearing. The brothers find that the evil is real and have to deal with real magic now. The Mirror Queen (Bellucci) lives forever but not in youth in a Rapunzel type tower. The trees in the forest have twisted roots that move and the trees shimmy about .the brothers are helped by feisty Angelika (Headey). She makes the movie. Parents must be careful with the younger children because children are vanishing and there are torture scenes. The PG 13 is there for a purpose
