Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: - - - - IMDb: «..his is the holy grail of weirdo kiddie movies, the ultimate wicked fairy tale, a morbid, bizarre case of Grand Guignol for kiddies in the most odd permutation of genres ever concocted. This rarely-seen feature lies truly beyond description. Those zany folks at Churubusco-Azteca took two of their favorite cinema categories, the wacky fairy tale and the gothic horror movie, and spliced them together willy-nilly to make a ludicrous, entirely diabolical thrill-ride for youngsters. The film starts off menacingly, as a clearly nervous narrator speaks of the evil forces that rule the world. In case that doesn't sufficiently spook the wee ones, we are then subjected to a compendium of monsters (my favorite is Carrot-Head, the monster carrot) including ogres, vampires, robots, witches, skeletons, dragons and Siamese beasts, as well as a catalog of atrocities too numerous and unbelievable too mention, until Little Red Riding Hood and her soul-mate, Tom Thumb, with the aid of fairy tale perennials Stinky the Skunk and the Ferocious Wolf, conquer the evil witch and her band of grotesque ghouls. After this traumatizing descent into hell, the film ends on a high note as our heroes waltz through the wicked forest warbling the excruciating tune, "Just Give a Little Whistle." Imagine seeing this as a kid in 1965 shopping mall America; expecting an innocuous fairy tale, you witnessed instead a disabling nightmare fable! As if the original Mexican film wasn't dark and wacky enough, K Gordon Murray's consciously creepy dubbing must have made the US version downright hair-raising to the malleable young mind...».
