News & Interviews for Snow White: A Tale of Terror
Critic Reviews for Snow White: A Tale of Terror
It's an unappealing dark adult version of the classic Grimm Brothers' fairy tale of the Snow White story.
Too dark for it's own good...the fairytale's been sucked clean-dry
Not bad dark retelling of the classic tale.
Audience Reviews for Snow White: A Tale of Terror
Interesting version of Snow White. Not quite a horror movie, it does have some of those elements, bringing the story much closer to how the Brothers Grimm told it than the cleaned up version that we're more familiar with. Sigourney was fantastic as the wicked Queen. Definitely not a Disney film.
The Creepy version of Snow White!
If Nursery Rhymes were derived from certain events in history, why cant fairytales be glossied up stories of certain people from the past?The fairy tale is over.The Grim Brothers rewrites the classic childrens story into a more realistic, dark and horrifying life story of a young girl from a prestigious family.Set in medieval Europe, the story starts off in the middle of winter while the Hoffmans are travelling home. Lady Lilliana Hoffman is with child and is weary from their previous engagement. As their carriage passes by the woods, the group is spotted by a pack of hungry wolves... Sam Neil, Sigourney Weaver and Gil Bellows (Billy, from Ally McBeal) takes the house down with their great performance in this 1997 TV movie. I thought one of the seven 'dwarfs' looked like Chris Benoit, which was interesting and "personally funny" at the same time. There were parts in the movie that I thought I was watching a theater play, and Monica Keena reminded me of Frodo in a dress... but then again I also hated Kristin Kreuk in "The Fairest of them All", so maybe its just me reacting to the chosen pretty one. A dark, delectible syrup. An interesting story and an outstanding performance by Sigourney Weaver. Loved the shocking twists.Extra extra! Read all about it!"Weaver's critically-acclaimed performance earned her an Emmy Award-nomination as well as a Screen Actors Guild-nomination as Outstanding Lead Actress in a TV Movie.The film also earned two Emmy nominations for Makeup and Costume Design."Easter egg: Ever thought about how some people degrade others? Think about what yould call someone who yould find lowly.Director: Michael Cohn
