Top 10 Gruesome Fairy Tale Origins:
January 6, 2009

Fairy tales of the past were often full of macabre and gruesome twists and endings. These days, companies like Disney have sanitized them for a modern audience that is clearly deemed unable to cope, and so we see happy endings everywhere. This list looks at some of the common endings we are familiar with - and explains the original gruesome origins. If you know of any others, be sure to mention it in the comments - or if you know of a fairy tale that is just outright gruesome (in its original or modern form), speak up.
