The Curse of Sleeping Beauty Reviews

January 9, 2017
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.

This is one sluggish curse that wouldn't wake even Sleeping Beauty.

The latest in a long line of horror films shamelessly ripping off the Brothers Grimm won't leave you believing in fairy tales.

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.

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.

a fresh idea in a genre where too many ideas are overused and stale.
