Movie Review: Little Red Rotting Hood

This week I’m reviewing Little Red Rotting Hood, and here’s what it’s about:

“For years, the old woman in the woods has secretly kept the wolves of the forest at bay. But when the woman dies, the creatures suddenly attack the residents of a nearby small town. As more and more people turn up dead, the townsfolk discover something far more sinister than wolves lurking in the backwoods and fight to save their home from evil by waging a bloody battle against the ruthless creatures. But as the wolves begin to overpower the town, only the woman’s granddaughter may have the key to stopping the bloodbath before it’s too late.”

This movie is rated pretty bad, but in my opinion, it was okay. There were some familiar actors in it, and they were also okay. It’s one of those movies that leaves you with very little memorable scenes. So, yes, I checked my email part way through the viewing.

I’m a little irritated by the title because the word ‘rotting’ had me thinking zombies. There are no zombies in this movie. It’s a werewolf movie as the cover indicates. The idea behind the Red Riding Hood character is interesting, but it could have been so much better.

Watch this movie if you’re in a blah mood with low expectations and you’ll get through it like I did.

My Rating: 2.5 out of 5

The Threat & Thinking Torture

L.J. Moran

L.J. Moran currently lives in S. Jersey. She’s into animal rescue, horror conventions, and is addicted to coffee.
The threat not the act of physical harm is most compelling to me. A scene in Flavors of Death uses a small dark room, a victim chained to the floor and the tormentor nearby. The victim is given a quick glimpse of the nasty tools, the deformed animals waiting to be released to bite, then plunged back into darkness to await their fate.

Mary Shelley uses light and dark scenes to mimic the characters moods. She allows the reader to frighten his or herself much like Alfred Hitchcock’s psychological genus giving the audience peeks into what may happen next.

In my book Satan’s Sting the threat in the cellar are children and a puppy. Once trapped in the bowels of an old Monastery, if you come out again, your not the same. I play upon the fears of the dark, bugs, murderous children and a physically strong victim that finds himself helpless.

I think graphic gore is more for shock value. An author must create a world that doesn’t remind the reader they are reading a book. It has to be an experience. Once that line is broken, I believe the scene falls apart whether it is physical or psychological in nature.

As a child I was more frightened at what might be hiding in the dark shadows of my room, the basement or the closet. The longer I laid in bed or stood on the top step looking down, the higher the terror level as I waited for the unseen to jump out and grab me.

Dina Rae

Dina Rae has penned 6 books with a 7th on the way. Her themes revolve around conspiracy NWO paranormal, and aliens. The Best Seller is her latest release.

When I think of physical torture, I think of spies torturing their enemies or the Mafia torturing people they need information from. As scary as all of that is, nothing topped the torture scenes in the movie Seven. The movie is about a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as an excuse to kill his victims. The torture scenes either show or infer the ultimate pain in both psychological and physical torture. For example, the director shows an obese man who is forced to eat his stomach. Later on, in the movie, a man is murdered with a metal phallic device inserted into his anus. Recently, the movie Nocturnal Animals had me unhinged when two women were kidnapped, raped, and then murdered. My favorite kind of torture to write/read about or watch in a movie is cannibalism. There is nothing more terrifying than humans eating humans. Hannibal Lector is a very odd protagonist. My novel Halo of the Damned had quite a few cannibal scenes in it. My latest novel, The Best Seller, has torture scenes of doctors who mutilate their patients in the name of advancing science.
