Quotes

Jennifer McKenzie: Life was perfect. Until one day, a terrible day, something happened. One of those events that could turn your world upside down. I got an e-mail. And guess who it was from? Good old Windbag: my *grandmother*. She's coming to visit me. Out of the blue. What for, why now? And as usual, nothing but dramatic *bullshit* came out of her mouth.

Awful! Do not waste your money
12 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I swear this is the worst horror movie ever made. Even Jeepers Creepers was a 10 out of 10 compared to this. The acting by the little girl (Jennifer) was horrific (and not in a good way). Seriously...she should have taken some acting classes prior to appearing in this film. This film was just a bunch of gory scenes intending to "scare" you by making you lose your lunch, with no real plot or supporting story lines. It has nothing to do with the traditional story of Red Riding Hood other than the fairytale is mentioned once in the movie. The antagonist doesn't even wear a red hood. Just goes around killing people. The ending left me thinking "what the hell?" because it had nothing to do with the film, didn't tie up any loose ends, etc. Don't waste your money on this piece of crap.
