While poking around the Internet for more details about Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company’s development of a Gothic reimagining of the classic Little Red Riding Hood, we came across a completed film that’s also based on the popular fairy tale, Rotkappchen: The Blood of Red Riding Hood.
A teaser and the full trailer can be found below, but first here’s the synopsis. Rotkappchen, directed by Harry Sparks (All Hallows’ Eve), follows Rose, a precocious 17-year-old, as her mother brings her from Germany to live with her grandmother in America. Although she is happy to see her grandmother, Rose hates her new life. She misses her friends back home and is teased and ridiculed by the other students at school. Rose can only find comfort in her tattered book of fairy tales until she meets and develops a crush on Nick, the most popular guy at school, and is befriended by Summer, a beautiful sexy coed. But things become complicated as Rose is tormented by Nick’s girlfriend Bridgette, and the once quiet town finds itself rattled by a series of gruesome, mysterious murders…
You can learn more about Rotkappchen: The Blood of Red Riding Hood in all the usual places: Facebook, MySpace, and on its official site, where you’ll also find details about the film’s red carpet premiere on September 12th in Silver Spring, Maryland. The rest of us can see it on September 29th.
