The Brothers Grimm

A dark fantasy about the two "Brothers Grimm" (Ledger and Damon) who travel around the Napoleonic countryside vanquishing fake monsters and demons in exchange for cash.

It is there that they have to try and discover what's really happening and deal with it before more people are killed or their lack of success leads to the guillotine.
