Red Riding Hood

Synopsis: Valerie (Seyfried) is a beautiful young woman torn between two men. She is in love with a brooding outsider, Peter (Fernandez), but her parents have arranged for her to marry the wealthy Henry (Irons). Unwilling to lose each other, Valerie and Peter are planning to run away together when they learn that Valerie's older sister has been killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village. For years, the people have maintained an uneasy truce with the beast, offering the creature a monthly animal sacrifice. But under a blood red moon, the wolf has upped the stakes by taking a human life. Hungry for revenge, the people call on famed werewolf hunter, Father Solomon (Oldman), to help them kill the wolf. But Solomon's arrival brings unintended consequences as he warns that the wolf, who takes human form by day, could be any one of them.

I feel like...

...I'm being sold.

Right up there.

You better watch yourself.

There's a fork.

Let's split up.

Another fork.

We'll take the steep one.

No. We should stay together.

Good morning, dear.

Morning, Grandmother.

Grandmother told us

that the wolf used to kill entire families...

...snatching children from their beds.

Those stories never seemed real to me.

Until now.

Ripped the thing out!


To Adrian.

For his sacrifice.

To Adrian.

Poor Henry.


Your father was a brave man.

You know, I was close enough to smell it.

And I was afraid. And I hid from it.

I didn't do anything.

I should've saved him.

- Henry...

- Just leave!

I don't want you to see me like this.

It was Henry's father, wasn't it?

The man you loved?

Lucie was in love with him.

She was a year older than me.

She could've married him.

Why did you insist it was me?

I think you know the answer to that.

I want you to say it.

Lucie was Henry's half-sister.

Adrian was her father.

Does Papa know about Lucie?

No. And you have to promise me

that you'll never tell.

Father Solomon.

He's here.


Presenting His Eminence...

Father Solomon.


Oh, please don't cry.

You see? You see all these children?

You see how scared they are?

There's a big, bad wolf.

Someone has to stop it.

Is that the beast that killed our mother?

It may very well be.

Go on. I'll join you soon.



This is indeed an honor, Your Eminence.


You've arrived just in time for our festival.

As you can see,

the werewolf has been dealt with.

That is not a werewolf.

No disrespect...

...but we have been living

with this beast for two generations.

We know what we're dealing with.

Well, no disrespect...

...but you have no idea

what you are dealing with.
