A collection of Grimm-esque fairy tales coinciding, and told simultaneously, with each other. Each story has a classic fairy tale look and vibe, but they all share harsh lessons for the characters that upend some typical cliches. I found the trio of tales to be completely unpredictable and visually entertaining. The huge multi-cultured cast brings a more rich environment to the beautiful settings. Set design, costume, and special effects (about 80% practical) are top notch, considering the lesser budget. It has universal appeal. One of the years most underrated/overlooked that's not to be missed.

The moment I saw the queen of Longtrellis consuming the bloody heart of a sea monster, I knew these weren't exactly stories I would read to my children. Rather, these are fairy tales for adults provided with some rather strange twists.

In well-known fairy tales, events are usually presented more rosy. And almost all of them …
