Snow White Dark Side

by - July 26, 2011

"Queen, you are full fair, 'tis true, but Snow White is fairer than you."

The queen becomes jealous, and orders a huntsman to take Snow White into the woods to be killed. She demands that the huntsman, as proof of killing Snow White, return with her lungs and her liver. The huntsman takes Snow White into the forest, but after raising his knife to stab her, he finds himself unable to kill her. Instead, he lets her go, telling her to flee and hide from the Queen. He then brings the queen the lungs and the liver of a boar, which is prepared by the cook and eaten by the queen. (D. L. Ashliman's English Translation of The Brother's Grimm Tale# 53))

This must be the premise of Kristen Stewart new movie ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, which will be release in 2012. It is altogether a different take on one of the most loved fairy tale in the world. And the Brother's Grimm must be turning in their grave right now as their Tale Number 53 is going to explore the dark side of the characters...
