Amanda Seyfried stars in this dark retelling of the classic Little Red Riding Hood fable, set in a medieval village where a werewolf has been terrorizing the citizens. Though the night has become a more and more dangerous time for the villagers, who never know when the beast will leave more bodies strewn in its wake, Valerie is a girl on the brink of womanhood, and is so preoccupied with her love and lust for an orphaned woodcutter that she risks leaving herself vulnerable -- both literally and figuratively. Meanwhile, the townspeople hire a werewolf hunter (Gary Oldman) to track down the monster and kill it before it wreaks more bloody havoc. But as suspicions brew, the people of the once peaceful town begin to turn on each other, letting the innocence of their formerly happy community fall further and further into the past. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Minus a couple big names, ie; Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman, this really should've been a made-for-TV-movie. Wouldn't even have Que'd it had I known it was remotely related to anything Twilight (Director, Catherine Hardwicke). All style and near zero substance and let's not even mention the dialogue. George Lucas writes deeper material (read that again)! And explain to me the fascination with the rock-music-type soundtrack on what are somewhat "period" pieces? The backdrops do look like Bob Ross paintings turned CGI, so there was that.
Always in search of a good werewolf movie...and still searching. There is little connection much less allusion to the fairy tale. Aside from that, the movie is slow and tries to shock with twists that just aren't shocking.
