Truly a grim fairy tale, director Catherine Hardwicke's ("Twilight") dark take on one of the most famous stories in children's literature casts Amanda Seyfried ("Mamma Mia!") as the heroine.
A wave of bizarre killings strikes her village, prompting her to wonder if one of her two suitors (Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons) is able to morph into the werewolf that's responsible. An asset to the film is the appearance by ever-luminous screen veteran Julie Christie as Seyfried's grandmother; "Twilight" staple Billy Burke, Lukas Haas and Virginia Madsen also appear. DVD extras: deleted scenes. *** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
