Storyline Heading
For decades, the people of the village of Daggerhorn have maintained an uneasy truce with the werewolf, who prowls at every full moon, by offering the beast a monthly animal sacrifice to quench its appetite. But under a blood red moon, the wolf changes the stakes by taking the life of one of their own.
DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Fantasy Thriller - This is a horror-tinged spin on the classic fairy tale aimed at teen and young adult audiences, particularly females. Scary sequences, sensuality, and violence make the film much too intense for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Excluding the silly CGI and the regrettable lack of blood and gore, Red Riding Hood is a visually breathtaking motion picture (and is thankfully not available in 3-D). But the content does not aspire to anything close to the packaging.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor Of the classics of world literature crying out to be filmed as a sexual fantasy for teenage girls, surely "Red Riding Hood" is far down on the list.

USA Today Full Review
Average The best that can be said is that the production design is striking. Otherwise, it's a foolish story, marred by a strange blend of overacting and bland, offhand performances.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 119 moviegoers:
These are very mixed reviews from everyone. It appears that you will either love it or be somewhat disappointed. Not many in-between.
TEENS:Two-thirds of the males enjoyed "Red Riding Hood" very much with most loving it. Unfortunately, the remaining third were disappointed. Two-thirds of the females loved it but the remaining reviews are very mixed but most of them enjoyed it, at least to some degree.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Both the male and female reviews are disappointing but not terrible. Approximately half the males enjoyed it very much but very few loved it. A quarter of them rated it average and another quarter rated it below average. Only about a third of the females enjoyed it very much. Another third rated it average with the final third rating it below average.
ADULTS:Half the males enjoyed it very much with most of them loving it. The remaining half is about equally split between average and below average, which is disappointing. The female reviews are slightly better. More loved it and fewer rated it mediocre to low.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Valerie (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.
