Red Riding HoodValerie (Amanda Seyfried) is a beautiful young woman torn between two men. She is in love with a brooding outsider Peter (Shiloh Fernandez), but her parents have arranged for her to marry the wealthy Henry (Max Irons). Unwilling to lose each other, Valerie and Peter are planning to run away together when they learn that Valerie';s older sister has been killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village. For years, the people have maintained an uneasy truce with the beast, offering the creature a monthly animal sacrifice. But under a blood red moon, the wolf has upped the stakes by taking a human life. Hungry for revenge, the people call on famed werewolf hunter, Father Solomon (Gary Oldman), to help them kill the wolf. But Solomon';s arrival brings unintended consequences as he warns that the wolf, who takes human form by day, could be any one of them. As the death toll rises with each moon, Valerie begins to suspect that the werewolf could be someone she loves. Panic grips the town as Valerie discovers that she has a unique connection to the beast--one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect...and bait. Read More

Have you had questions about the motivations of the wolf, or suspicions about Grandma? Have you pondered the sexual connotations of this age-old fairy tale? Me neither. Just the same, someone has made a movie about...

More "Twilight" than Grimm, and a terrible mess.
Film.comMarch 21, 2011
Hardwicke directed Twilight, you'll recall, and would apparently like to continue directing it, over and over again.

Catherine Hardwicke is Anne Rice with a camera.

Just when you think you've finished with one of these annoying franchises, another one pops up to plague you.

While it's nice to see renewed interest in genre fiction from a teenage girl standpoint, these new monsters don't have much bite to them.
Big HollywoodJune 30, 2013
Gary Oldman is the one bright light in this tired drama that deserves neither his talent or your time.
We Got This CoveredJune 02, 2013
Trite dialogue, poor special effects and an insubstantial storyline make this one a bit of a dud.
Daily StarMarch 14, 2013
The CGI wolf would have been rubbish a decade ago, the clearly indoor village set looks like it once featured in an old episode of Star Trek and the central love story is lacking in bite.
