The realm of evil, ruled by Snow White's Evil Queen (Ofelia Guilmáin):
The vampire (Quintin Bulnes) accuses Little Red Riding Hood's Big Bad Wolf
(Manuel Loco Valdés) and Tom Thumb's Ogre (José Elias Moreno) of having
become friends with their adversaries - a big no-no in the realm of evil.
So0 they are to be tortured and executed. Fortunately though, Red's skunk
(Santanón) listens in on the trial and brings the news back to Red (Maria
Garcia) and Tom (Cesáreo Quezadas Pulgarcito), who immediately head off
to visit the Good Morning Fairy and ask for help. Unfortunately, the Fairy
can do little in the realm of evil, so other than grow Tom Thumb to human
size, there's nothing she can do - and thus it's up to Red, Tom and the
skunk to go to the Evil Queen's palace and free their friends.
course, the Evil Queen knows about the approach of the heroic trio, so she
throws every monster at them she got, like the child snatcher, a Martian
robot, Frankenstein's monster and a dragon - to little avail. Only the
dragon proves to be a bit of a challenge because ... well, it's a dragon,
but then the kids our heroes have previously freed from the childsnatcher
arrive for assistance, and the dragon is powerless against strength in
numbers. Eventually, our heroes free the Wolf and the Ogre, but then the
Evil Queen manages to snatch Red Riding Hood.
Everything culminates in a
showdown between our good guys and the Evil Queen, at the end of which she
falls into an oven that's connected straight to hell. And with the Evil
Queen gone, the realm of evil turns into a friendly place after all.
best advice I can give you concerning this film is probably: Don't watch
it on drugs! Seriously, this is one weird movie. While obviously intended
for children and using The Wizard
of Oz as a template, this movie doesn't shy away from throwing
vampires, robots and the Frankenstein monster into a fairy tale context
and creating an at times quite macabre atmosphere. And if you combine
this with cheap costumes and very basic special effects, you have - well,
