"As the moon grows over the coming days. May the tide of its light illuminate your path. So that you may fulfill your destiny, my child."
The Wolf Lady

Little Dead Rotting Hood is an American Action Horror movie by Jared Cohn.

In a small Appalachian town, a number of wolf attacks have left people dead, and the Sheriff (Eric Balfour) quite busy, even as his children are visiting from his ex-wife's. As the bodies pile up, though, some people begin to speculate on the kind of wolves that could be doing all this.

Amidst all this, Danny (Romeo Miller) is looking for his girlfriend Samantha (Bianca Santos), who disappeared on a trip to visit her reclusive grandmother (Marina Sertis) up in the woods. Samantha's grandmother, known to the locals as "The Wolf Lady", had recently committed suicide, though. As for Samantha, well, she seems to have come back as some kind of undead werewolf, and is now trying to sort out all that is happening for herself.

The movie was released on January 5th, 2016.
