A skillfully warped and visually gorgeous fairy story concerning a forest-folk social scene that springs up around a little girl's corpse. Beautiful Darkness tackles the descent from petty cruelties and casual pecking orders into Machievellian self-preservation, cold-hearted revenge and arbitrary evil. It's a perfect trip down the Lord of the Flies path, with plenty of specific wit and horror along the way, a Breaking Bad for The Brothers Grimm. -EF
