Movie Reviews

"no manners then, and no manners now"

"most reviews of "snow white, a tale of terror" highlight the wonderful performance of sigourney weaver as the wicked queen, in addition to touching on either how good (or not) monica keena was as snow white, or 'lilly'. while both, in my opinion were great casting coups, the pleasant surprise in this movie comes from gil bellows. this is not your sometimes annoying, ultra clean cut 'ally mcbeal'/'miami rhapsody' gil bellows. this is gil as we've never seen him before, (and most likely never will again). he's dirty, scruffy, sweaty, smuldering, and sexy-- the perfect tortured anti-hero of this twisted tale. his presence presents yet another welcomed curb in the road as this interpretation of the classic story continues its journey off of the beaten path. if watch this film for nothing else, watch it for gil bellows."
Snow White - Tale of Terror

"This film could have been great if the editor had cut about a third more out of it. It's much too long. I would start by removing ALL of the development of Snow White's relation ship with the social outcasts that replace the dwarves... it is an unfortunate mess, and contains a near-rape scene that is just unnecessary. The thieves are not a sympathetic replacement for Happy, Doc and Sneezy, regardless of their traumatic histories...this is supposed to be about Snow White. It becomes tedious and unpleasant, but the good parts are good, and the actors are top-notch.
Bad, editor, bad!"
Oh-No! Oh-No! It's Off To Dle We Go!..,.

"I've always thought the Disney version of SNOW WHITE needed something extra. Something like mass murder, immolation, or crucifixion. What the....?? It's as though the movie gods have read my mind! In SNOW WHITE: A TALE OF TERROR, I get my wish and more! Sigourney Weaver (ALIEN 1-4, AVATAR) is the delightfully wicked Claudia, stepmother to Lilian (Monica Keena). Now, Claudia didn't start out eeevil. She was fine up until losing her baby. After that, she became hyper-jealous, vain, and absolutely psychotic! Weaver is the nasty black soul of SW:ATOT, allowing us to see just how bloody dangerous hatred can be! Sam Neill (OMEN 3, EVENT HORIZON, JURASSIC PARK, IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS) is Claudia's kindly, utterly blind, ultimately doomed husband. He bumbles along, oblivious to his wife's nefarious plot to kill his daughter and seize all power to herself. Lilian must find a way to survive the many curses and schemes thrown at her by her sinister stepmum. Are there seven "dwarfs" in this movie? Yes, sort of. More like a group of stinky forest men who wind up helping Lilian in spite of themselves. If you enjoy twisted faerie tales, Sigourney, or are as ghoulish as I am, you'll love this one..."
Really creepy

"This movie is awesome! It really keeps your attention--me and my friends usually fall asleep when we watch movies, but not this one! It's not that it's really gory, it's more creepy & suspenseful than horror. The main girl is so pretty! I love that she's pale with dark hair & still really gorgeous."
