I give this movie 3 out of 10, but only for one reason (otherwise it would be 1 out of 10). Kim Johnston Ulrich is actually very likeable as the mother, showing a lot of courage and guts. I wouldn't go so far as to say that it is a well-drawn character, but it isn't your usual "scream queen" but more like Linda Hamilton in "Terminator". Otherwise this film is a mess, it's low-budget showing in almost every scene. Rumpelstiltskin himself is extremely annoying, mouthing bad one-liners almost every minute. The special-effects are not that much to write home about either and the less said about other characters the better (I must confess I even disliked the baby, wishing for a unhappy ending). It's also surprisingly boring despite a healthy pace throughout. My suggestion: don't watch but give ms Ulrich a better part in something else.
