Red Riding Hood



Hammer is back and they're doing Fairy Tales just the way that only Hammer could do things--and it looks amazing--despite the fact that it's directed by the same director that did that pile of filmographical scheiss  er um movie, Twilight, gak, barf, vomit, which really wasn't my cup of tea.  Gary Oldman looks good as a werewolf hunter, and the sets look incredible...who knows, someone besides Oldman might even be able to actually act in this thing.  A guy can hope. 

With any luck, maybe they'll remake The Reptile.  That was a fairly original movie, with an interesting monster that wasn't straight off the shelf.  It'd be cool to see what they could do with it now...but then again, they did come up with a weird slot game promotion based on the 1971 vampire movie Twins of Evil, part of the notorious Karnstein Trilogy (Which some people think ought to be a quadrology including Vampire Circus, or even a quintology if you add-in Captain Kronos) which was based in turn upon J. Sheriden Le Fanu's Classic Carmilla..so I don't know what to think...but I'll probably have to see this movie.

  1. Let Me In was also a Hammer film.

  2. @Trey: Yup, it was...but it was also a remake of Let The Right One In...and it was substantially changed from the original story. If you're going to drastically alter a tale, why not just a new one from the ground up? In any case, I intend to address Let Me In later on, after I wrap-up some more Hammer-related stuff, after some over-due Riskail get's released into the electronc aethyr...plus Leigh Brackett's profile is almost ready to go...
