Percival's "Why have you cut your hair?" to Lady Jean was not in the original script, but was added when Isabella Rossallini, who kept her hair in an iconic short bob for the majority of her career, was chosen for the role. The directors felt an explanation was needed for why a medieval woman would have such short hair, and the implication of the line was that Jean cut her long hair in mourning for her missing husband.

No, daughter, no. Just because I know a few things, that doesn't make me a witch. But just to be on the safe side, let's keep this a secret. Agreed?

This is one great Cannon Movie Tale.I just recently saw it.The music is very professional sounding and doesent sound cheesy like some of the other Cannon Movie Tales do.
The plotline is a little screwed up.It does have an intriging backstory featuring the Lynette(Red Riding Hood) character's uncle(Craig T Nelson).
This film boasts a terrific music score by Stephen Lawrence.It elivates the film so much and makes it seem more like a real film than a children's movie.
The film has a nasty and frightening atmosphere that might scare the little ones.Children 6 and up will not find it scary. This film is a must see or buy.It is worth a blind buy.That's what I did just because I love the Cannon Movie Tales.It is worth it!Get It NOW!!!!
