A long time ago in a distant fairytale countryside, a young girl leads her little brother into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil. The new trailer really brings to life how dark the world is for this rendition of the Grim Fairy Tale. The muted colors along with a wicked stylish atmosphere has me excited to check it out.
