Suspense Horror Film ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ Locks Multiple Deals at EFM

The suspense horror slasher “Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Death and Porridge” has locked several deals via international sales company luvit Media while at the European Film Market. Buyers include Gussi Films for Latin America, Pioneer for the Philippines and Front Row for the Middle East.

Directed by Craig Rees (“Annabellum,” “Whispers”) and starring Olga Solo, Abigail Huxley, Rees and Julian Amos, “Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Death and Porridge” is an adaptation of the classic fairy tale.

The news, which was broken exclusively in Variety, calls the film an “intelligent” horror slasher, in the vein of Wes Craven horrors, and with comparables such as “The Strangers” and “The Purge.”In this adaptation of the fairy tale, Goldilocks and the three bears live together in an isolated house in the woods. When a group of friends enter their home, Goldilocks, leader of the bears’ pack, decides to get rid of the intruders.The film is part of a new school of fairytale dark adaptations such as “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey” and “Gretel & Hansel.” The origins of several fairytales are dark such as the Grimm brothers’ and Hans Christian Andersen’s stories, suggesting a more adult audience during their inception.

“Goldilocks and the Three Bears” is produced by Rees Dragon Prods and the film’s trailer which dropped in August went viral among horror fans. We can’t wait to see this one on the big screen!
