On paper, turning Little Red Riding Hood into a glossy gothic horror movie isn’t a bad idea. Unfortunately, beyond the impressive images the filmmakers didn’t seem to know what to do with the concept. There’s no point in a detailed plot description, because it doesn’t make much sense. It involves a medieval town haunted by a big bad wolf, a disturbed monster hunter hired to slay the beast, and a pretty girl in a red hood with two generic love interests.
