One of the most bizarre things I've ever had the fortune to see
26 September 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Its odd how this Studio Azteca kiddie flick is probably more horrifying and nightmare inducing than any of their actual horror films. "Little Red Riding Hood and the Monsters" is simply put one of the most bizarre things I've ever had the fortune to see. Its just as surreal as the infamous "Santa Claus" (produced by the same studio), and thats saying a lot. Its odd that this was intended as children's entertainment, because its one of the most uncomfortably creepy things I've ever witnessed. Ranging from jaw-dropping bizarreness to just being annoying, is it any wonder I ended up loving the little thing? As a kids film, its a complete failure. However, when viewed as a cult film, its utterly beyond belief.

Just what makes this so bizarre? Well, the central plot (Little Red Riding Hood and Tom Thumb have to do battle with various Mexican monsters to rescue and Ogre and a talking wolf) for one. Also, the creatures themselves, ranging from Siamese twins to a werewolf with OCD to a robot and beyond. Also, the crappy dubbing (unsurprising, as this is a K. Gordan Murray importation) ensures plenty of campy laughs. The songs in particular where excruciating, to the point where I was tempted to shut the screen off and blast some Stooges to erase them from my sub conscience. As bad as this is, the sheer strangeness ensured I would never actually become bored. Highly recommended to die-hard psychotronic fans. (6/10)
