Rumpelstiltskin is a 1995 fantasy horror comedy film directed by Mark Jones and starring Max Grodénchik as the title character.[2]


In the 14th century, Rumpelstiltskin is imprisoned inside a small jade figurine. In modern-day Los Angeles, the recently widowed wife of a police officer, with baby in tow, finds her way into a witch's shop and purchases a certain figurine, resulting in the cackling beast being freed and demanding possession of the baby.



Rumpelstiltskin was not a success at the box office, it made only $306,494 dollars, with its widest release being 54 theaters.[1] The film was released on DVD on August 21, 2001, by Republic Pictures.[3]

Critical response[edit]

AllMovie wrote, "this groan-inducing would-be camp [..] boasts some good makeup by Kevin Yagher but is still easily the worst of the '90s crop of fairy-tale horrors."[4]
