I’m a pretty big fan of Japanese splatter cinema, with films like Tokyo Gore Police and The Machine Girl ranking high on my list of movies that allow me to gauge just how cool someone really is. I’m also a bit fascinated by the recent trend of turning literary heroes into big-screen action stars. Sherlock Holmes, Robin Hood, and even the upcoming “gritty” adaptations of Jack and the Beanstalk and Snow White all make me wonder why these characters torn from the pages of classic literature and thrown on the movie screen have suddenly become so popular. So, naturally, I’m totally into this ridiculous Japanese splatterfest adaptation of Red Riding Hood, which features boobs, swords, and yes, bestiality. I can’t decide if it’s brilliant, insane…or both. But it’s definitely NSFW and in incredibly poor taste.
