Red Riding Hood Love Triangle

A while ago, I posted about a series of ‘Not-So-Childish Fairytales’ with the release of Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke‘s more adult adaptation of the fairytale classic Red Riding Hood, staring Amanda Seyfried, which is set to be released on DVD and Blu-ray next week on 14th June.

Today I was contacted by APB Media who have launched a new website – Red Riding Hood Love Triangle. If you’re a fan of the film, or just a fan of Shiloh Fernandez (Peter) and Max Irons (Henry), then head over to the site to vote for your favourite and help Valerie to decide who to pick.

Not-So-Childish Fairytales

With two of the most recent films being advertised on TV at the minute, it seems that everyone is having a shot at taking a famed fairytale and putting an adult twist on it to make it their own.

Film Review: The Twilight Saga 1: Twilight

Based on Stephenie Meyer‘s novel of the same name and directed by Catherine Hardwicke, Twilight follows high-school student Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), who moves from sunny Arizona to the perpetually overcast town of Forks in Washington. There, she meets Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a handsome but mysterious teen who has a secret. Edward is a vampire. His family don’t drink blood, but Bella’s scent inspires a nearly-impossible-to-harness bloodlust in Edward. Far from being frightened, the two enter into a dangerous romance. Things go relatively smoothly until a visiting vampire clan – consisting of James (Cam Gigandet), Victoria (Rachelle Lefevre), and Laurent (Edi Gathegi) – catches Bella’s unique scent and threatens the young couple’s future together.
