No fairy-tale endings this time.
Going far-darker than Disney, this wickedly-good late ’90s flick leans hard into the horror aspect of the story, allowing Sigourney Weaver to tear up the screen as a bloodthirsty woman bent on revenge.
She’s actually a nice stepmother for some time, but driven to despair after Snow, her brat of a stepdaughter, causes her to suffer a stillborn child.
Turning to the mirror, Weaver is seduced by the dark side, setting up a war of betrayals.
Everyone has trust issues, and there’s not a song to be heard, from human or animal.
