The Grimm Brothers stories turned 200 last year and what better way to celebrate two centuries of children's fables than to take one of those well-known stories and fill it with all sorts of violence, over-the-top special effects - and of course, 3D? Such is the case with Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

Most of the stories the Grimm Brothers gathered in their various books came from folklore and legend. Some stories are more well-known than others and are therefore easier to adapt for the big screen - Red Riding Hood, Snow White and Rumpelstiltskin.

However, there are dozens of other more obscure stories in the Grimm library, and we've picked out 5 Lesser Known Grimm Stories that we think are worthy of having their tale told on the big screen.
