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.
