YMMV: The Sisters Grimm

  • Fridge Brilliance: A fantasy series that features a big war in its seventh installment. Sound familiar?
  • Funny Moments: The gingerbread man in book 4 accusing Sabrina of being a "bakist".
  • Jerkass Woobie: Being trapped in a mirror for hundreds of years and having to deal with cruel owners made Mirror bitter and led him to become the Master.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • This happens a lot to Sabrina.
    • For the readers, we have the illustration of Little Red Riding Hood at the end of the second book. Sure, the description of the sweet Little Red Riding Hood with the smile of a serial killer is disturbing in its own right, but the picture... it fills in the little gaps in the imagination that were best left blank.
      • Here's the picture, aptly given the file name "The_Mad_Child.jpg". Don't look at it if you're planning on getting good sleep.
    • Also, the thought of the more unpleasant fairy tale characters being both alive and at large, and the idea that the terrible things some of them did actually happened... It becomes Fridge Horror of finest caliber.
    • At one point, the flesh literally melts off the bones of one character.
    • Briar's death. Holy hell. Family-Unfriendly Death is a tad of an understatement. Essentially, she gets swatted by a dragon and cracks her skull against a tree.
    • Everything about this picture, depicting Little Red Riding Hood on the Jabberwocky. Not only is Red still sporting her Slasher Smile, but the Jabberwocky is equally terrifying. Hell, the Jabberwocky's appearance on the cover rivals that of the anglerfish from Finding Nemo in terms of More Teeth than the Osmond Family.
  • Tear Jerker: Briar's death in book 7. Not only was it an extremely unpleasant way to go, but it becomes more saddening when we find out that Jacob was planning to take her hand in marriage.
  • Wangst: Sabrina does try to run away a few times.
