A twisted take on "Little Red Riding Hood", with a teenage juvenile delinquent on the run from a social worker travelling to her grandmother's house and being hounded by a charming, but sadistic, serial killer and pedophile.
In the 1400s, Rumpelstiltskin is imprisoned inside a small jade figurine. In modern-day Los Angeles, the recently widowed wife of a police officer, with baby in tow, finds her way into a witch's shop and purchases a certain figurine, resulting in the cackling beast being freed and demanding possession of the baby.Written by

When I rented this film, I was expecting a genre-defying horror version of the classic children's tale. Anyone who has seen SNOW WHITE: A TALE OF TERROR knows what I am talking about. But, what we have instead is a modern-day version of RUMPELSTILTSKIN, a movie that tries desperately to be like the "Leprechaun" series, which was even worse.
There are no big names in the film, but the acting is not TOO bad. It could've been better, though.
The film is an angry mess of a horror movie that never seems to know what it wants to do with itself. Many parts are good, and I think that RUMPELSTILTSKIN was one of those 'sleeper' hits of the year. This one gets 3/5.
