Red Riding Hood

Date of review: 28 September 2013

A very dark tale inspired by the children's fable, this film tells the story of a village which is ravaged by a werewolf for the first time in 20 years, despite having offered animal sacrifices to placate the wolf. The village priest calls for help from a paladin renowned for slaying witches and werewolves, meanwhile the men of the village take it upon themselves to hunt the beast to avenge the fallen villager. Despite only being 12-rated this is a very dark and violent film (albeit with little gore, hence the rating). If you're a fan of gothic horror then this is definitely one to watch.
