For decades, the people of the village of Daggerhorn have maintained an uneasy truce with the werewolf, who prowls at every full moon, by offering the beast a monthly animal sacrifice to quench its appetite. But under a blood red moon, the wolf changes the stakes by taking the life of one of their own.

I missed this on theater and I kind of regret it. I bet the big screen experience would have been much more rewarding but nonetheless, the DVD experience is quite good. I like it when they get the idea of a fairy tale and turn it into a very dark adult version. I love what they've done with the story. The big bad wolf is now a big bad shifter. It is smaller than the Twilight pack but equally stronger. Red, or Valerie (Amanda Seyfried), here in the movie, has two admirers. Her best friend and love Peter (Shiloh Fernandez) and a man she's betrothed, Henry (Max Irons), equally hot and have something to offer. It seems all fine and dandy, as a love triangle should be until Valerie's older sister got killed by the wolf. Your eminence, Solomon (Gary Oldman) came to the rescue, but really he was just an old man blinded by his own revenge. I was truly fascinated. I could have gone with a happy ending, but what the hell, I also like how the story ended. The twist was good as the people, including Valerie, tries to figure out who amongst them is the wolf. A lot of people think the movie sucks, too bad for them. This one worked for me well.

The soundtrack was excellent! The musical score was fitting to all the scenes, eerie and creepy. My favorite track is, Fever Ray - The Wolf, I could not get enough of it.
