“Are you sitting uncomfortably?
Then I’ll begin…

Jacob and Wilhelm’s famous fairy stories get a Little Earthquake-over, with four new adaptations showing some familiar characters in a dark new light. Spiked with black humour and sprinkled with gore, these tales are decidedly Grimm and deliciously unexpected.
