The story of this film is pretty much that of Little Red Riding Hood (and director/writer Tzang Merwyn Tong freely admits this influence even in the credits). But there are a few differences, the wolf is not an animal but young Louis Le Bon (Johan Ydstrand), who likes his girls young, and doesn't even shy away from murder to get into their panties - thus the grandmama (Catherine Sng) has to lose her life. And Little Red Riding hood - here called Beth (Evelyn Ng) - is not the innocent girl of the taqle but a curious youngster on the verge to adulthood, who is more seduced by the wolf's charms but fooled by his feeble lies. And when her uncle Charlie (Wolf Danker) rushes in to save her, it is ultimately him, and not Louis, whom Beth kills ... then though she stumbles over her dead grandma, and the seriousness of her situation hits her like a sledgehammer. Fortunately though, an electric saw is lieing around, and when Louis tries to sneak out of the situation, she simply saws off his legs ...

But ... was it all just a dream of a hospital patient whose legs have just been amputated ? And why does his nurse just look like Beth ?

 

Given the familiarity of the story, this is still a creepy featurette, taking its story into the realms of the horrific, the psycho-erotic, the surreal, and by doing so effectively pumping new blood into the old story.

Nice.
