What's more terrifying than Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, Carrot Head (exactly what it sounds like), a robot, deformed siamese twins, and a cardboard dragon attacking Little Red Riding Hood and her friend, Stinky Skunk? That's right -- NOTHING! Well, maybe the Wicked Witch of Mexico unleashing a spell that turns children into apes. LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD AND THE MONSTERS is an inappropriate Mexican children's film that was inappropriately dubbed for U.S. audiences by exploitation maestro K. Gordon Murray in the early 1960s. It's filled with excruciating songs, atrocious voice acting, and questionable jailhouse humor between a red-headed ogre and The Wolf Man. All of the animals and monsters are real-life people wearing costumes that were most likely found in a dumpster. Watching this movie is like spying on an alternate universe that is ruled by a skid-row Pee-Wee Herman who passes the time by torturing Eddie Munster. Fun for all ages! (Joseph A. Ziemba)
