We are all familiar with the classic Disney movie, Sleeping Beauty. Who doesn’t love the colorful animation and the beautiful love story? However, what if the story was different, more dark and menacing? What if we had the chance to see where Sleeping Beauty was located, no matter how terrifying it may be? Director Pearry Teo brings this concept to life in his new movie THE CURSE OF SLEEPING BEAUTY.
“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.
If this doesn’t sound absolutely fantastic (and visually stunning), I don’t know what does! THE CURSE OF SLEEPING BEAUTY will be in select theaters on May 13, 2016 and available on VOD and iTunes May 17, 2016.
