Much scarier than singing dwarfs

Having grown up watching Disney, I had absolutely no idea that many were based on actual stories which were far from pretty, colourful or dreamy. This one, which resembles the original Grimm Brothers version, is dark and scary with that hollow and isolated feeling all over it. Unlike the Disney Snow White we all grew up watching, this Michael Cohn directed flick will leave you stunned by its graph... read more

This flick is registered as a TV show here on Listal but, in IMDB, it is considered a standard movie (I think it was considered as a TV feature on IMDB as well but it has been modified in the mean time). In fact, this film was originally supposed to have a theatrical release but it eventually ended up debuting on Showtime in the U.S. Anyway, I wasnโ€™t sure what to expect from this flick but since... read more

Based somewhat more authentically on the Grimm Brothers' story of a young woman who is unliked by her stepmother, the film includes the talking mirror, a poisoned apple, and some ruffian gold (not diamond) miners (and they aren't dwarfs or cute). It takes place at the time of the Crusades, and depicts the attitudes of the wealthy and the peasant classes toward one another.

TDcore's Horror Journal 2019: January (19 movies items)

" This film is rather unique, in being one of the few to realize the horror elements in the Grimm Brother's fairytales. I always found Snow White to be quite frightening as a child, so the idea wasn't too far fetched for me. And it's pulled off rather nicely. We have beautiful direction and cinematography with a fantastic cast. Sigourney Weaver steals the show as the wicked stepmother, whom she turns into a complex character and a young Monica Keena is charming and solid in the role of Snow Whit"
