Little Red Riding Hood and the Monsters

It's easy now to make fun of these triply, redubbed foreign fairy tale films that dominate dye kiddie matinees of the sixties and into the early seventies but one has to remember they were made for kids. As such, they aren't bad. I recently had the opportunity to watch this one, originally from Russia, for the first time in 45 years and it's colorful, scary, funny with odd characters, mean villains and triumphant heroes. What more could a good kids movie need? Yes, there's a guy in a bad dog suit. Dael with it! Use your suspension of disbelief. Once you get past that, LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD AND THE MONSTERS can still be a treat!
