it's more in the goth tradition of Twilight. we always imagine little red riding hood as a sweet girl romping around the woods to bring a care package to her sick grandmother but not on this film. it depicts a ladylike riding hood flirting around with the big bad wolf. very much like the Bella-Edward affair. but i would love to see it as it is a refreshing twist from the traditional storybook tale we all loved.

I kinda think it is more suspenseful than horrifying. the kind of movie that puts you on the edge of your seat rather than see blood and gore which will make you want to go to the bathroom to barf after seeing it. all in all, i think the movie is worth watching.

This is not the typical little red riding hood which most people knows. The thriller I saw in the tv is scary and makes me pause for a while and react..lol..I said maybe the wolf is superb in this story.. I will try to watch it tho if given a chance but not a must see for me..hehe

I haven't seen the new film, but the original fairytale is a lot darker and more interesting than people give it credit for. it's overflowing with symbolism and is quite dark. one of my favourite adaptations ever is The Company of Wolves. absolutely beautiful version of the story, where it really focuses on the symbolism of a young girls awakening sexuality. the most obvious symbol being the red cloak. it doesn't take a genius to work that symbol out. at one point, Rosalies mother says to her, when being questioned about "the beast in men" "if there is a beast in man, it meets it's match in woman" her mother seems to understand and relate to her daughters growing feelings, while her father is afraid and her grandmother full of warnings. Little girls, this seems to say, Never stop upon your way. Never trust a stranger-friend; No one knows how it will end. As you’re pretty, so be wise; Wolves may lurk in every guise. Handsome they may be, and kind, Gay, or charming never mind! Now, as then, ‘tis simple truth— Sweetest tongue has sharpest tooth!

The movie was twisted and good.It is kinda like Twilight because of the characters though.No, it is not scary but a little bit dark.

I have seen this trailer for this movie and it alone sparked my interest. It certainly put a new and different spin on the fairytale that most of us have grown up with. i think it could even be bigger than Twilight ever was!
