This was an interesting revision of the classic Little Red Riding Hood fairytale, telling it from a darker and more stylish perspective: What starts in a very innocent manner quickly turns into a dramatic tale of revenge and survival, with the Little Red Riding Hood bravely facing the Big Bad Wolf in a violent confrontation.
Even when by this time dark and more mature re-tellings of fairy tales have been done to death to the point it seems nothing new can be said (specially considering that some of the original stories weren't exactly Disney stuff), I consider that "Red" is worth of recognition thanks to its more than well done aesthetic and a great atmosphere, which makes a neat homage to shadow plays.
The ending, albeit a little bit predictable, still has an effective emotional impact which closes the short in a very satisfying manner.
