Description

Most of our childhoods were filled with Brothers Grimm tales, whether we recognized it or not at the time. Cinderella. Snow White. Even Little Red Riding Hood. However, the versions of the stories most of us grew up on are watered down. They’ve been Disneyfied. The origins of these stories are much, much darker and not for the faint of heart.
