Name of Movie: Red Riding Hood (2011)

Director: Catherine Hardwicke

Year Released: March 11, 2011

Summary: Everyone knows the story of the little girl in the red hood who took a basket of goodies to her grandmother’s house, only to be attacked by the wolf that lurked in the woods.

Well, that’s only half the story.

For many years, the people of a village lived in an uneasy truce with a bloodthirsty werewolf. But on the blood moon, a human is murdered.

Valerie loves Peter the woodsman, but her parents want her to marry Henry the blacksmith. But when Valerie’s sister Roxanne is found dead, fears that the werewolf is angry grips the town. The frightened townspeople ask a famous werewolf hunter to help them rid the town of the beast, but he has his own agenda. As people die from the beast’s attacks, Valerie discovers her family’s secrets and that she herself has a possible connection to the wolf…

My review: It was a very good movie, with a mystery twist on a beloved children’s fairy tale.

My recommendation: Keep the younger kids away from this one, as some scenes in the film can be too intense for those under the age of 10.

My rating: *****
