While some retellings of "Little Red Riding Hood" bring the fairy tale back to its sexual roots, Maya Kern's Redden takes a different tack, sending the little girl on a dangerous errand to bring food to Grandmother, the most fearsome creature in the forest.
We've seen tons of interpretations and reinterpretations of classic fables and fairytales, often filtered through layers of Disney. Edward Gorey's illustrations of Little Red Riding Hood, Jack the Giant Killer, and Rumpelstiltskin are wholly his own, adding his understated touch to those classic stories.
In the upcoming film Snow White and the Huntsman, that classic fairy tale receives a modern rejiggering complete with a guest appearance by Thor and (hopefully) a golem made out of poison apples.
Back in 1997, Mia Farrow, Garrison Keillor, Michael Richards, Fabio, Adam West, and Don Rickles lent their voices to Redux Riding Hood, a wonderfully weird jazz-inflected short cartoon that toured the festival circuit.

Here's the plot synopsis, if…
As a companion piece to Glen Duncan's novel The Last Werewolf, animators George Fort and Monica Smith (Superjail!, Venture Bros.) teamed up with cabaret band The Real Tuesday Weld — who you may know from the video game L.A. Noire — for "Me and Mr. Wolf," a gleefully violent music video that harkens back to the…
Felicia Day has started filming her Syfy movie, Red. Syfy's Karen O'Hara tweeted this amazing picture. She also clarified that Red is "the story of the descendants of the original [Little Red Riding Hood] who are now werewolf hunters." Awesome.
