Growing up, we all got told the same fairy tales and watched the same Disney movies. Sure, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, but generally, the witches aren’t that bad, the evil animals get vanquished and the heroes live happily ever after. Along the way, we also learn some lessons about morality, beauty being on the inside and other warm n’ fuzzy stuff.
But here’s the kicker. Most fairy tales aren’t even kid-friendly fantasy stories – they’re straight up horror. There’s murder, cannibalism and even torture. Some of these original stories don’t even seem to match the ones we grew up with.
Never mind video games messing us up, I’d blame the Brothers Grimm.
