With the release of two Snow White related films this year, it is no wonder that The Asylum has decided to throw it's hat into the ring and put out their low budget version of the tale. This film is ultra low budget and so poorly acted that the story is actually hard to follow. The actors and actresses just basicaly read their lines with little or no emotion and make what is already a drab story seem even more uninspiring.
There are dwarves, who happen to be taller than the regular people in the film,cgi dogs and forest monsters that look so badly composed it is laughable. Eliza Bennett tries her best as Snow White, but her ability is muddled by lack of direction. It is like they gave her the script and said read, but did not tell her what body language to show or facial expressions to portray.
No one else was any better, and the 90 minute film became rather hard to watch. With The Asylum's more original efforts out their this film really did not need to be made, and sadly the company has taken a major setback with this effort.
Overall I have to give Grimm's Snow White a pass and rate it a 4 out of 10.
