One of Neil Jordan's (The Crying Game) earliest film works, it plays like a movie that Sigmund Freud and Franz Kafka might have decided to make together. This supposedly offers the underlying psychological horrors of the classic fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood, involving werewolves and lots of blood and gore. Pretty pathetic once you watch it all the way through! There are no incredibly good performers in this, except for Angela Lansbury as Granny and the lovely Sarah Patterson as Little Red. Mainly it's the technical aspects of the film that make this interesting. The art direction, costumes, cinematography and special effects stay true to the nightmare vision the filmakers had in mind, but most of the story (especially the ending) leaves something to be desired.
