‘Red Riding Hood’ Trailer Sexes Up An Old Fairy Tale

Upon hearing it for the first time when I was 7, I didn’t notice anything about Little Red Riding Hood sticking out as overtly sexy. Of course, after seeing the Looney Tunes version with the howling wolf and finding out what an “Old Woodsman” is, my vision of the story changed slightly.

Now, director Catherine Hardwicke is challenging that view even further by stuffing as much sexual tension as possible into the trailer for Red Riding Hood.

You had no idea that the little girl on her way to grandma’s house just needed a European-style synth track behind her, did you?

I’ll never see “Into the Woods” the same way again. [Apple]
