Set in a medieval village there is the same old story of a young girl betrothed to the son of a rich man but secretly in love with another. There is a little layering of the story as there may have been another secret romance. Yet we have no time for those things as the wolf seems to be expanding his diet and a professional is called in for the dispatching of the misunderstood furry creature.Seems that our hooded heroine can communicate with the wolf which does not bode well of her future.Will she go quietly or be eaten herself. Could be we are in for a big surprise.The movie was not brilliant but watchable. There was a wolf, a riding hood, and big teeth. There are a few scuffed and missing body parts as part of the story; however no excessive gore. It is good to see that Julie Christie (age 70 at time of filming) is keeping a hand in acting as the big eyed grandmother.
