red riding hood, a mix between the fairytale and a horror-movie by twilight-regisseur catherine hardwicke.

valerie's (amanda seyfried) village is after 20 years of peace again hunted by a werewolf. they ask the experienced hunter pater salomon for help. but what he suggests doesn't comfort: one of the villagers has to be the werewolf. a terrible witch-hunt begins.

after the great trailer, the actual movie was a little dissapointing...

    I'm sad to hear that Red Riding Hood wasn't that great of a movie. I was really excited to see it, but haven't had the chance yet. Guess I don't feel so bad now about waiting to get it through Netflix.

    i really like that kind of movies, with some supernatural element or parallel-world like "adjustment bureau", "inception" and "minority report"...

    i'm really excited to see "source code" with jake gyllenhal!

  4. @jex

    have you read the book? most people think the book is not as good as the movie, so i wont read it, i think...
