Mirror Mirror, Murder, and Mayhem
The Asylum has taken another fairytale classic and given it their own twist that makes it an adult-only film. This time, it’s the tale of Snow White with the tag line “Mirror mirror on the wall, ‘tis the most terrifying of them all”. That alone should already tell you not to expect singing and cuddly animals. Instead prepare yourself for the action and monsters that you are about to see. The film retains much of the classic elements of the original tale, but gives it their own take on the dwarves and inclusion of a horrifying reptilian beast. Snow White is no longer the doe-eyed princess from your childhood; instead she becomes a heroine in this dark, brutal, and twisted version.
