little red riding hoodI bet you've never seen Little Red Riding Hood like this before. In the five-minute reinterpretation of the classic tale, creators Jorge Jaramillo and Carlo Guillot turn Red Riding Hood into a brutal and ruthless wolf killer who knows how to wield a knife. It's a dark and gory animation that you'll definitely want to check out ... that is, if you're an adult. If a poor kid happens to stumble upon this thinking they've just located their favorite fairy tale? Well, then, I hope you don't like sleeping alone -- your kids are going to storm trooper your bed so fast it will make your head spin. Nightmares for the young ones are a guarantee.


There seems to be a trend toward making kids' stories less kid-friendly -- between the two new Snow White movies, the recently released Red Riding Hood starring Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Depp's Alice in Wonderland, and Pan's Labyrinth, there have been many fairy tales re-imagined with more adult content.

And it may be something to look out for if your little one is active on the Internet. We don't want to scare the poor kids with a bloody wolf-murder scene when they just want to see something sweet and innocent, now do we.

Watch this magnificent version of Red Riding Hood, but, uh, just make sure your kids aren't in the room:

Do you feel the need to protect your kids from seeing adult fairy tales?
