Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Death and Porridge trailer gives a deeper look at horror twist on classic tale – Exclusive!

Arrow in the Head has the EXCLUSIVE first look at the trailer for the horror thriller Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Death and Porridge

A few weeks ago, we shared the exclusive first look at a teaser trailer for writer/director Craig Rees’ film Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Death and Porridge, which puts a horror thriller twist on a classic children’s story. Now a full trailer has arrived online to give us a better idea of what exactly is going on this movie – and again, we have the EXCLUSIVE first look at this trailer! You can check it out in the embed above.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Death and Porridge has a short and simple synopsis: Never enter into someone’s house without permission.

But most of us already know the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. A young girl called Goldilocks wanders into a house in the woods, helps herself to some porridge, sits in the chairs, tries out the beds. Then the home’s inhabitants – a family of bears – get home and chase her away. Judging by the trailer, it seems Death and Porridge follows a group of characters who settle into a home in the woods… then four people (three wearing bear masks, one wearing a Goldilocks mask) show up to give them grief.

Olha Solomakhina (To Happiness) stars as Goldilocks and is joined in the cast by Julian Amos (Get Millie Black), FlexSingh (Tough World), Jimmy Roberts (Once Upon a Time in Frickley), and newcomers Abigail Huxley and Susan Franks, with Robson Medler (In Pursuit of Repetitive Beats) as Daddy Bear, newcomer Jack Barry as Mama Bear, and special makeup effects artist Grace Darling Smith as Baby Bear.

Putting a horrific twist on popular children’s stories is all the rage these days. Earlier this year, we got Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey (read our review HERE), and the filmmakers behind that movie are planning to not only make a sequel, but to also build a cinematic universe that will include horror versions of Bambi and Peter Pan (Bambi: The Reckoning and Peter Pan: Neverland Nightmare), among others. Meanwhile, Cinderella’s CurseCinderella’s Revenge, and Sleeping Beauty’s Massacre are coming down the line. 

What do you think of the “children’s tales become horror movies” trend, and what do you think of the trailer for Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Death and Porridge? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
