Don’t let the title fool you. This ain’t no live action variant of a Disney film, nor is it Maleficent (although some of the costumes are similar) or even a Julia Roberts interpretation of Snow White or any other Grimm fairy-tale (in some part this is based off the Grimms ‘Briar Rose’). Instead this is more like your typical haunted house horror with a Dario Argento type of variant of the haunted house film thrown in for good measure. The story starts with a dream, or more accurately a nightmare sequence in which a young artist called Thomas Eisler (Ethan Peck, grandson to Hollywood legend Gregory Peck) wakes from a dream in a cold sweat after he attempts to kiss and awake a mysterious and exotic sleeping girl called Briar Rose (India Eisley), but is unable to do so. One day he is approached by a lawyer who tells him that he has inherited a house from an unknown uncle who had committed suicide. Naturally the house is a dilapidated old mansion that he is unsure what to do with. Arriving he is both spooked and finds the place spooky. It’s filled with some rather creepy mannequins. As he delves deeper into his uncle’s past and finds all sorts of weird things such as an ancient book of spells he realises that his uncle has passed down a curse to him. A realtor (Natalie Hall) he bumps into one day at the house eventually grows close who also happens to believe that the house may either be haunted or carry a curse. His nightmares continue and even get worse when he is attacked by a veiled Succubus type of demon. He believes that the key to the curse lies with Briar Rose and his understanding on how to wake her. He and Linda one night are attacked by the mannequins as they turn into underworld demons. They narrowly escape out of the house and are saved by a friend of Linda’s, Richard (Evil Dead‘s own Bruce Davison), himself an occult specialist. Between them they attempt to lift the curse from Thomas.
