Short Synopsis:

Set on the outskirts of the Cuban jungle, this film is a bizarre and twisted take on the classic fairytale..

Review:

Ferozz_wild_riding_hoodThis shocking, disturbing and often funny film draws on all the darker elements of the familiar Red Riding Hood fairytale. With the lush setting of the Cuban jungle as its back-drop, it tells the story of mother and daughter Dolores and Miranda who are desperate to escape the oppressive yoke of the perverted and psychotic matriarch of the family Ms Zulma as well abusive father and husband Lucio.

During a traumatic night Ms Zulma encourages her son Lucio to rape his wife at the dinner table. When Lucio dies, Dolores and Miranda flee Ms Zulma for the protection of Dolores’ brother-in-law Inocencio. However, Inocencio is not as angelic as he seems, dabbling in black magic and unable to resist the pull of young Miranda’s sexual awakening. With a mysterious sub-plot about a werewolf called ‘the cagueiro’ this is a bizarre and mystifying film that is bound to stir up much controversy.

Boasting bright and striking visuals, it is also rich in symbolism and religious imagery. Through its twisted and grotesque filter, it cleverly draws out the tropes and themes of the fairytale archetype, building up to an unsettling and genuinely shocking finale. With strong sexual overtones throughout the film as well as some gruesome violence, this is extreme viewing, which really has to be seen to be believed.
