For anyone who ever wondered just what was really going on in the minds of the Brothers Grimm as they penned their fantastic and phantasmagorical tales, New Zealand filmmaker Florian Habicht offers a highly stylized take on some of the most imaginative tales ever penned. Every good fairy tale is pregnant with perversion and rife with ominous subtext. In the land of Woodenhead, however, conventional fairy-tale logic is turned on its head as the human subtleties that often help children relate to these strange stories are forced into the rearview mirror by the overwhelming power of humankind's most twisted instincts.
