Fairy Tale Adaptations

Lately we’ve been seeing adaptations of classic fairy tale stories into contemporary films with  dark twist. From Alice and Wonderland to the upcoming Snow White and the Hunstman, we’re seeing awesome eye candy as well as stories being retold in darker, fearsome reincarnations.

In my own writing and retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk, along with common tales and legends of Hansel and Gretel, Brother and Sister, the Two Brothers, and other fairy tales – I think the literary/artistic atmosphere is getting darker.
