He then regales his captive audience with the 'authentic', 'uncensored' version of the tale where Red is sent off to see the Wise Woman Of The Woods (an unseen witch-like grandmother) who will teach her sex education because her own mother is too embarrassed. Because she enters the woods without learning the dangers that await her, she meets the Wolf - a handsome prince-like man who is secretly a shape-shifting man-eater. The rest of the tale plays out as per normal except the Woodcutter doesn't make his entrance (because he was added by the Brothers Grimm to facilitate a happy ending) and Red is raped and then ripped to pieces by the Wolf. The Gangsters wrap up their evening and, utterly depressed, get ready to leave when the storyteller quips: "Did I ever tell you what really went down... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Despite searching for almost 4 months and advertising in as many publications as possible, the actress portraying Little Red Riding Hood (Brooke Petersen) was the only person who responded and tried out for the role. It was pure coincidence that she happened to be perfect for the part. See more »

Quotes

Franko: Now I know she's just a kid, but you'd think that Red could tell the difference between Granny and a Wolf?
Narrator: Look, it's a metaphor. It's all a metaphor! It doesn't have to make perfect sense!
Franko: Maybe she's short-sighted? My sister's short-sighted!
Narrator: She is not fucking short-sighted!
Steve: Maybe she does recognize the Wolf? Maybe she wants to play along?
Marlon: Why would she do that?
Steve: Maybe she's, like, y'know... 'kinky'?
Narrator: Look. She's the fucking personification of innocence. She is not 'kinky' alright?
