"The Curse of Sleeping Beauty" is an entirely new, dark vision of the classic Brothers Grimm adventure. Thomas Kaiser (Ethan Peck) 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 (India Eisley), held captive in a terrifying netherworld seen previously in his dreams.

Critic Reviews for The Curse of Sleeping Beauty

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

The latest in a long line of horror films shamelessly ripping off the Brothers Grimm won't leave you believing in fairy tales.

May 13, 2016 | Full Review…

Director Pearry Teo, who scripted with Josh Nadler, pushes the brooding atmospherics, entrapping us in so many dingy, dustily lit spaces that, like Thomas, we just want to escape.

May 12, 2016 | Full Review…

It doesn't build up enough mythology to be a pure fantasy; it doesn't do enough with the original Brothers Grimm story to be a pure fairy tale; and there aren't enough scares or enough gore to be pure horror.

January 9, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Sleeping Beauty is a snoozefest.

July 13, 2016 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Runs for less than ninety minutes, but you still might have trouble staying awake through it.

May 18, 2016 | Rating: D | Full Review…

This is one sluggish curse that wouldn't wake even Sleeping Beauty.
