A twisted take on "Little Red Riding Hood", with a teenage juvenile delinquent on the run from a social worker travelling to her grandmother's house and being hounded by a charming, but sadistic, serial killer and pedophile.
Two-shots including Dan Hedaya and Brooke Shields make it appear as if they are close to the same height, but in fact, Shields (at six feet) is a full three inches taller than Hedaya (five feet nine inches), and wearing the two-inch white pumps shown in the film, she would have towered over him.
Them's some big ugly fuckin' teeth you got, Bob.
In the opening scene, Vanessa can hardly read the simple sentence "The cat drinks milk", but she seems to have no trouble reading the menu in the "Hi-Way cafe".
The beginning credits play over a series of color drawings (in a style similar to cartoonist Robert Crumb) in a hip retelling of the Little Red Riding Hood story.
In 1997, the 102 minute edited US R-rated version screened in Australia with an R rating for its theatrical release. In 1998, the 104 minute uncut version was submitted to the Australian Classification Board for a video release, however, it was refused classification (RC). Instead, the edited US R-rated version was released on video. The Australian DVD released through Force Entertainment is also the US R-rated version.
