Abstract:

"Once upon a time," Granny begins, as she weaves vivid tales, full of folklore and fantasy, wherein fantastic beasts lurk within men and young girls who stray from the path despite all warnings may encounter a hairy demon with glowing eyes. Rosaleen believes her, but she still puts on her red hood and walks through the woods to grandmother's house, and is surprised by what big teeth Granny has. The forest is always misty, the trees are proudly sinister, and the rural cottages all sit cozy and gingerbread style, but this is a stylishly twisted fairytale.
