We all know the fable of Little Red Riding Hood. This Shudder original twists the classic story into a modern and radically feminist fight for survival.

But she's not quite the easy mark they expected, and as she fights to make her escape, the forest is on her side. And she's not out merely to survive, but to seek vengeance.
