In the late 20th century, fairy tales reemerged in popular culture, often reimagined as gothic fables for adults. These contemporary adaptations examine the false binaries within these tales, while exposing the themes of sexual abuse and recovery encoded therein. “Little Red Riding Hood” provided particularly fertile ground for such explorations, with films such as FREEWAY (1996) and RED RIDING HOOD (2011) following the perils and possibilities for a coming-of-age woman. Rather than passive victims, these protagonists are active, resisting both victimhood and inherited burdens. However, an equally important issue in “Red” adaptations is that monstrosity, like victimization, can be resisted. The figure of the Wolf is not clearly defined in the original tale: Is he an allegory for a predatory Gentleman? Is he a Werewolf? Or is he merely an animal, hungry for a meal? The Wolf may begin as the threatening Other, but his potential for violence can be overcome—or harnessed. This lecture will interrogate a set of deliberately gothic film and television adaptations of “Red Riding Hood” with a particular interest in their messages of recovery and agency.

Presented by Elizabeth Abele
