Fairytales without happy Endings

Tale Of Tales
A trio of outrageous fairy tales all connected within an unseemly kingdom. Like every fairy tale there are mythical beasts, royal families and magical powers. Tale of Tales consists of a Queen desperate to have a child that she is willing to sacrifice anything, a King that marries his daughter off to an ogre and a pair of sisters going to extreme lengths to be youthful again. Each of the three different fairytales are filled with insanity, darkness and pure surrealism. Unlike regular fairy tales Tale Of Tales doesn't have a happily ever after, rather just an 'after'.

Into the Woods
A modern twist on the classic fairy tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel all tied together. A baker and his wife cursed by the witch next door leaving them unable to have a child they greatly want. To undo the curse they embark on a journey to gather objects requested by the witch to break the curse. On their endeavours they encounter Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood and Jack and the bean stalk. Everyone's wishes are granted, but with any wish or desire comes consequences and disaster.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events
A series focused on three siblings, the Baudelaire orphans. Right off the bat it is said that very few positive things happen to the children, misfortune seems to follow them and it is not a story with a happy ending. The children become orphans after their parents are killed in a fire in their family home and are sent to live with a distant relative Count Olaf. The series of unfortunate events stems from Count Olaf's many attempts to kill the children in order to get his hands on the Baudelaire family fortune.

The Little Mermaid
Written by Hans Christian Andersen in 1836 the original story is not like the Disney happily- ever-after version you are most likely familiar with. The similar theme of love is present in both versions but the original is a gruesome and depressing story about self-sacrifice. A mermaid meets a prince and falls in love after she saves him from drowning. Madly in love with the prince the young mermaid visits a sea witch and trades her voice for a pair of legs. Here's the twist...she will have legs but it will feel like she's waking on jagged shards of glass and will turn into sea foam if the prince rejects her. Despite these drastic circumstances she willingly trades her mermaid tail for a pair of legs. Spoiler alert, the prince rejects her and the mermaid throws herself into the sea thus turning into sea foam and dying.

Sleeping Beauty
Unlike Disney's version the original story of Sleeping Beauty is not quite so sincere. The beauty is woken with an innocent kiss in the story line that most people know. In the original tale the waking of the beauty is not so innocent but rather vulgar, the prince sees her asleep and rapes her. This in does not wake the beauty and nine months later she gives birth while she is still asleep. What wakes her in the original tale is the sucking of her finger by her new born child. She wakes up to find herself a rape victim and a mother.
