Caperucita y Pulgarcito contra los monstruos (1962)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Mexican kids film mixed with the horror genre. Little Red Riding Hood, along with her pet dog and a huge skunk, are traveling through the woods when The Wicked Witch of Mexico sends various monsters out to scare them. The monsters include Dracula, The Wolf Man, the giant from Jack and the Beanstalk, Frankenstein's monster and various others. This is a kids movie so it's certainly not meant to be scary and for the most part I found myself entertained. I had to view the film in Spanish without any subs so I'm not sure if the dialogue or musical numbers would have added anything else. The scenery is very good and the colors used in the film are a real treat for the eyes. The monsters look very stupid but again, this is a kids movie so there wasn't any need for them to look scary. The dumbest looking one has to go to the rip of the robot from The Day the Earth Stood Still. Hopefully someone will release a subtitled version at some point. AKA: Little Red Riding Hood Meets the Monsters.
