SRC 049: Sleeping Beauty (2014)
When the filmmakers of your fairy tale film were too lazy to even read the source material to craft a faithful adaptation, you know you've storybooked your way into the Restroom...
SLEEPING BEAUTY deals with a very loose adaptation of the famous fairy tale, cluttering up the proceedings with unnecessary characters and poorly rendered CGI monsters. That, coupled with a healthy dose of nepotism in the form of director (HA!) Caper Van Dien's ENTIRE family making an appearance onscreen, makes for one nauseating Syfy production.
This fairy tale turd is currently available for streaming on Netflix and Amazon Instant Video, but as always, you're better off sticking to the Disney version and leave this badly acted, low budget fantasy to us.
