"The Curse of Sleeping Beauty" is an entirely new, dark vision of the classic Brothers Grimm adventure. Thomas Kaiser inherits an ancestral mansion that has been in his family for generations, only to learn that he has also inherited an ancient curse stemming back to the Crusades. Forced into his new role as "protector", the guardian appointed to keep the evil demons in the house at bay, Thomas must unravel the mystery of the house, while struggling to awaken the beautiful Briar Rose, held captive in a terrifying netherworld seen previously in his dreams.
Awfull? boring? creepy ? confuse ? each word, at first sigh, could be fair. but... . it is one of films who has its precise target. so, it do not looks for large audience. in same measure, it is a nice, in the first part, mix between mistery and horror. and it has a decent, sure, in many scenes obscure, story. the sin - maybe the impressive number of cliches. and the end as step to the second part. but it is not wrong. only a good strategy. for mix legends, fairy tale, propose questions and, maybe, seduce the fans of genre.
