A 666-Character Review Of ‘The Curse of Sleeping Beauty’
The Curse of Sleeping Beauty tells the story of Thomas Kaiser who finds out the magical woman of his dreams is real and in danger at the dilapidated mansion he inherited. I expected a mix of fairy tale and reality, but what I got was mostly boring reality. The fairy tale dream world is gorgeous with an aesthetic similar to The Fall or Jupiter Ascending, but those scenes are fleeting. Most of the film takes place in the real world involving uninteresting characters. Thomas and his sidekicks are bland and their acting is at laughable soap opera levels. The villain is creepy, but she only appears for about 10 minutes. Her minions are animated mannequins that are cartoonish instead of threatening. The ending is the only saving grace because it’s unexpected and goes against fairy tale endings.
