"Little Red Riding Hood" set in an urban jungle in the not-too-distant future. It's Christmas time, and Earth is God's Gameboy. Little Red puts on provocative clothing and heads for a night on the town. Her dad, after yelling at her, dons his Santa suit and leaves for work. Turns out he's a cat burglar. While he's in a fancy flat putting swag in his bag, he's surprised by the lady of the house. Meanwhile, Little Red, who has stopped to buy reefer, is accosted by Wolfgang, an aggressive and cannibalistic cop. After dining, he heads for home, where a surprise awaits. Written by
No, this isn't the porno-version of Bob Clark's legendary 70's slasher, but an extremely twisted and rather sick-spirited Belgian short movie that will cover ten of the craziest minutes in your entire life! Writer/director Pieter Van Hees surely has a demented world perspective, as he messes with pretty much all the sacred topics in life like religion, Christmas, marriage and children. The mini-plot is a mature & sadistic version of the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale, only she's a teenage drug-whore, the wolf is a cannibalistic Nazi police-officer and the usually friendly hunter is an aggressive black burglar who disguises as Santa Claus! He violently slaps children in the face and sleeps with the housewives whilst, parallel with these events, officer Wolfgang rapes and devours Little Red Riding Hood. This short promisingly opens with the words: "There are no good and bad guys...There's just bad guys and guys that are even worse!". And at least in this script, the characters live up to this statement. The on-screen violence is extremely graphic, with torn open torsos, wild gunfire and one entirely sickening head explosion sequence. For the true trash-fanatics, we'll even throw in some full-frontal nudity and provocative sex images! With all the vile and demented black humor featuring in this little short, I was really proud to discover that it was made in Belgium (where yours truly is from as well). In case the brief plot description sounds a little too harsh for you, there's a truly ingenious little wraparound story explaining how all the events are merely just happening on God's video game. "Black XXX-Mas" is brilliant and available for free on the internet! It'll be ten minutes you won't regret spending in front of your computer.
