Short, sweet faerie tale
17 May 2002 | by (Middle-Earth) – See all my reviews

This could have been easily an ABC Weekend Special. Sadly, I only found it once in a rental store and never saw it again.

Sad, because this was a pretty good story with so-so heroes and cool villians.

Oisin is a poor hunter. When he tries to shoot a deer, it becomes a blue fairy that takes him to FairyLand (obviously). There, he learns that he has to destroy the evil Shadow, who was created from the fairy king's own shadow.

It's a typical fairy tale, but it'll keep your interest if you have a half hour to spare. Good news for Disney Haters: there's no songs, only a ballet-like theme. The animation is okay, but does seem sketchy at times.

Fun Fact: This film was based on a book written and illustrated by artist Brian Froud. He would go on to create the artwork for the films "The Dark Crystal" and "Labyrinth", both directed by the Great Jim Henson....
