When I rented this film, I was expecting a genre-defying horror version of the classic children's tale. Anyone who has seen SNOW WHITE: A TALE OF TERROR knows what I am talking about. But, what we have instead is a modern-day version of RUMPELSTILTSKIN, a movie that tries desperately to be like the "Leprechaun" series, which was even worse.
There are no big names in the film, but the acting is not TOO bad. It could've been better, though.
The film is an angry mess of a horror movie that never seems to know what it wants to do with itself. Many parts are good, and I think that RUMPELSTILTSKIN was one of those 'sleeper' hits of the year. This one gets 3/5.
