Teo and Josh Nadler co-scripted THE CURSE OF SLEEPING BEAUTY from the Everette Hartsoe comic book. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie…

“THE CURSE OF SLEEPING BEAUTY is an entirely new, dark vision of the classic Brothers Grimm adventure. Thomas Kaiser (Peck) inherits an ancestral mansion that has been in his family for generations—only to learn that he has also inherited an ancient curse stemming back to the Crusades. Forced into his new role as ‘protector’—the guardian appointed to keep the evil demons in the house at bay—Thomas must unravel the mystery of the house, while struggling to awaken the beautiful Briar Rose (Eisley), held captive in a terrifying netherworld seen previously in his dreams.”

So prepare yourself for a very grim fairy tale (this ain’t Disney, folks!) and see THE CURSE OF SLEEPING BEAUTY on May 9th. FANGO Editor Emeritus Tony Timpone will be hosting the show, plus expect some extra surprises. Watch for an interview with Teo on this site soon, plus stay tuned for future screening announcements.
