Oh what wonderful silliness! It is exactly what I expected from The Asylum, and starring Caspar Van Dien. Queen Snow White and princesses, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Rapunzel, along with Red Riding Hood, are the Avengers, who must fight Rumpelstiltskin and the Big Bad Wolf, after they’ve been transported to the modern world, in this “suspend your disbelief and just go with it” flick. It’s not overly memorable, but has some decent make up, gore effects, and in general isn’t too bad for an Asylum movie.  If you decide to check this out, Lou Ferrigno, as Iron John, is the best part.
