Snow White

The creepiest retelling of Snow White I've ever read is a short story by Neil Gaiman. And Snow White was the only princess who didn't have blond hair in the Disney movies when I was growing up, which meant I liked her best until I realized I'd rather be a witch than a princess anyway.

So I found a new song by Florence and The Machine, and it's part of the soundtrack for the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman. There's a rather freaky witch, and Thor, and butterfly-flowers, and creepy monkeys. I have to admit I'm intrigued...

Here's the video, which is a mix of movie footage and song:

What do you think?


  1. I saw the trailer for this at the theater. It definitely looks creepy! Not something I'd take my kids to see. I might be interested in checking it out, though.

    I tagged you on my blog, Mama Diaries. If you want to play the game, stop by.

  2. I wouldn't bring my kids, either! I shall stop by your blog now. Thanks!
