This sadistically appealing farce of a fairytale features Mr. Beanstalk Jack, and at the start of his slashing and mashing, he is asked to "stop and smell the roses." Then we get a look at what should be a cute, colorful landscape complete with amusing, charming locals. ...but you know what lurks beneath the surface, right? Yep, copious amounts of blood, which is going to mar that pretty cosmetic look but then again, that's entirely the point. This could be the ultimate guilty pleasure game of the year, and we can't wait to test it out!
