It's a bit depressing that almost 3 years after this movie was released, only 12 IMDb members have rated it. Little Red is a modern adaptation of the famous Little Red Riding Hood tale. Ruth, aka Red (Hannah Obst), is an 11 year old girl from Milwaukee who's forced by her parents to go to girls' winter camp. On a whim, she decides to change her plane to go to Florida and ultimately to fulfill her dream of seeing wild horses running on the beach of Cumberland Island. However, Red gets noticed by a predator (Mark Metcalf) who decides he will stop at nothing to get his sick desires with Little Red. I say again it's depressing that only 12 people viewed the movie because, to me, it was beyond superb. The acting isn't anything special but you can tell everyone is doing their absolute best. The fact that the protagonist is played by a child who has never acted before or since is incredible. Mark Metcalf was overwhelmingly menacing and creepy. The exterior shots were great. All in all, a very solid movie considering it must have been done on a shoe lace budget. I'd recommend this film to anyone who isn't squeamish about exploring the depths of child molestation and pre-teen psyche. 7/10
