The latest in a long line of horror films shamelessly ripping off the Brothers Grimm won't leave you believing in fairy tales.
Director Pearry Teo, who scripted with Josh Nadler, pushes the brooding atmospherics, entrapping us in so many dingy, dustily lit spaces that, like Thomas, we just want to escape.
It doesn't build up enough mythology to be a pure fantasy; it doesn't do enough with the original Brothers Grimm story to be a pure fairy tale; and there aren't enough scares or enough gore to be pure horror.
Sleeping Beauty is a snoozefest.
Runs for less than ninety minutes, but you still might have trouble staying awake through it.
This is one sluggish curse that wouldn't wake even Sleeping Beauty.
This movie is just over 80 minutes, and it feels like (a) they're stretching to fill that much, since so much of what happens is redundant; and (b) that they didn't actually do a lot of takes, since so many of these conversations are stilted.
Nothing to see here.
Well, the brothers Grimm are credited in the opening titles for the story of Briar Rose, but were they still alive, they might have passed on that favor.
The film feels like a fairy tale as re-imagined by the staff of your local Hot Topic.
For viewers who are not into genre trappings, The Curse of Sleeping Beauty [...] is dull and silly beyond belief.
A fascinating film with eerie background music, a believable cast, and creepy atmosphere. This dark contemporary version of a Grimm fairy tale is very intense and not for kids.
