An excellent movie.
30 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

Rumpelstiltskin is excellent for what it is, and that is a wonderful, cheesy horror movie. If you are a fan of the Leprechaun series, you will most assuredly like this. It has a great mixture of funny dialog and violent humor, and, unlike most films, the bad guy is obviously the only star. This is done by contrasting the boorish, uninteresting people of the film with our colorful, funny anti-hero. Of course, who watches a film like this for dialog or characters? We want to see the bad guy on the screen, doing what he does best. And Rumpelstiltskin does this this quickly, not wasting a lot of time developing other characters, whom we could care less about. However, the characters are certainly not underdeveloped either. You'll just have to see this film for yourself.
