This plot Oo :-D
Lady in the woods passes the crown to her granddaughter to become some
kind of Zombie-Vampire-Werewolve-Buffy-Chick, so she can protect the
small town from a supernatural evil, the Denmother. Why she had to be
dead for that, who knows...
It felt like an over-length Buffy episode, and it showed the same
trademarks - TV look, effects that change between super bad and
surprisingly good, dialogues from hell, and a cast that is fairly
talented. Especially Eric Balfour, this good old veteran, does his job
just as good as he always does. Bianca A. Santos, the "Red Rotting
Hood", did her job well, too. The rest was overacted mostly, but still
Some of the Special FX were really bad, like the 3 guys changing into
wolves - I've seen this done better by small YouTubers. Some other
scenes were really cool though - the director knew what he had to do
with a small budget and focused on key scenes done well. A fight in a
small town, at night, with lots of trained animals, flame throwers, 30
or more extras, CGI - this is not easy ! The main antagonist effects
(don't wanna spoil you guys !) were not state of the art (or time), but
still looked good - you needa be fair here, this is not a 200 Million
dollar Hollywood movie.
Also, finally a horror B-movie without any night scene problems. Not
one single time I had to try hard to recognize anything in dark scenes
- so, good job from the lighting and camera department !
The dialogues are the biggest weakness of the movie - they were bad,
and I mean like, super bad. The actors tried their best, but some lines
cannot be delivered in a good way, not even if Meryl Streep would say
Overall, the movie is totally okay. It is not art, it is not even a
good movie in the pure meaning of the word. But it entertained me
fairly, and if you look for a "brains out, amusement on" movie, this
might be the one for you, especially if you like Werewolves or creature
horror in general.
There is even a pretty awesome female nudity scene - oh my gosh, was
that chick hot. Uff.
So, get it, guys, nothing wrong with "Little Dead Rotting Hood", maybe
besides the stupid title. In general, I probably would not have taken
the Red Riding Hood story as background, it was not needed. But
however, again, nothing wrong with it.
Have fun, and beware of the Denmother.
Maybe keep your dog out of the room, the tons of animal noises might
make him nervous ;)
