more than you'd expect for a slasher, excellent foreign horror
Understanding that every one has their own opinion, I was shocked to find out that this movie only has a 4 point rating. Forget the rating and give it a chance. The movie is photographed extremely well. You rarely see this, especially in horror movies. I like to say it reminds me of Raimi. Along with the visuals, the story will keep you guessing. The last horror to do that for me was SCREAM. This is the non-literal adaption of LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD and is poorly marketed as an English teen slasher. I expected to laugh at this rental, as I love to do with every other B-movie. This is more. Simply, a great horror movie. Oddly enough, I am usually the one jumping in horrors and not my girlfriend, suprisingly we both were this time. Cough, but I did it in a manly way. ;) Regardless of the majority rating, take in consideration those who liked it. This movie is worth it if you like the genre. Oh, and watch it with sub-titles. Normally, I would say it wouldn't matter THAT much; however, like MONONOKE it is much better with it's original performances. I hope you give it a chance and enjoy the photography, suspense, and playfully amusing (read: gory) deaths.
