The set designers that built the village that the characters live in did an excellent job in creating a balance of of stark isolation and fairytale look to it. None of which, in my opinion was enough to lift this movie out of it’s dull and overuses storytelling.

In the official press release for Red Riding Hood, we are told that Valerie (Seyfried) is a beautiful young woman torn between two men. She is in love with a brooding outsider, Peter (Shiloh Fernandez), but her parents have arranged for her to marry the wealthy Henry ( Max Irons). Unwilling to lose each other, Valerie and Peter are planning to run away together when they learn that Valerie’s older sister has been killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village. Red Riding Hood was written by David Johnson and directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who also directed Twilight.

This connection might explain why this re-imagining of the Red Riding Hood story follows the same predicable teen angst romantic triangle as the Twilight movies do.  Unfortunately for this movie, it doesn’t have a built in audience from a series of successful novels. Given the fact that no one knew the characters in advance, Red Riding Hood might have fared better if it had been more appealing to a wider range of viewers by focusing on the legend of the werewolf and hunting it rather than focusing on a juvenile romance.
