We've just returned home from the cinema. We went to see "Red Riding Hood".

It's been a while that I've enjoyed a movie this much. It is shot like a classic fairy tale, but with a modern soundtrack that works surprisingly well. Forget Disney fairy tales and go back to even before the Brothers Grimm. All the way to the original version, intended to teach children to not stray off the paths in the woods.

The story has all kinds of twists and surprises you. Several times I reevaluated my guess who the werewolf was. And in the end I was still proven wrong yet again.

This is, however, not a horror movie, more a thriller, and staged like a theater play in places. I enjoyed it a lot. I liked how the werewolf hunters were actually worse than the werewolves.

The werewolf is pure eye candy. Not a furless bear-like doberman, no, an actual beautiful large black wolf. You get a good look later on in the movie.

And in the end, most of the werewolf hunters are quite deservedly dead and the werewolf gets the girl. Such a happy ending.
