IMDB Rating: 5.6
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: N/A
We Got This Covered -
This is one sluggish curse that wouldn't wake even Sleeping Beauty.
The Hollywood Reporter -
Director/co-screenwriter Pearry Teo succeeds in investing the silly proceedings with spooky visual stylishness, providing enough scary demons and possessed mannequins to deliver the requisite jump scares. Unfortunately, the film also features sound, which results in the audience being able to hear the inane dialogue accompanying the familiar horror tropes.
Los Angeles Times -
The Curse of Sleeping Beauty is a hard-working but dreary horror-thriller inspired by the classic Grimm's fairy tale.
Movie Nation -
The effects - monsters, demons - are mildly chilling. But Josh Nadler's script is amateurish in the extreme.
The Curse of Sleeping Beauty (2016)
