Aronofsky has plumbed the Swan Lake fairytale for its inbuilt elements of Goth-horror. He proposes the black swan as a gateway to mayhem and madness. It becomes a malevolent creature -- think were-swan instead of werewolf.

Movie Review: Black Swan

Black Swan is like a horror-movie version of The Red Shoes --or perhaps it's The Red Shoes meets Saw -- in which the quest for perfection drives the dancer slowly mad.
