A Wicked Tale is a 45 minute experimental film by INRI studio. It is written and directed by Singapore filmmaker Tzang Merwyn Tong. The film premiered to critical acclaim at the 34th Rotterdam International Film Festival and was a surprise hit at the 2005 Montreal FanTasia Film Festival.
This low budget film is a dark re-imagination of the Little Red Riding Hood fable. Critics have compared it to the work of cult director Takashi Miike and Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin. It has received equal amounts of praise and criticisms for its strange storyline, surreal imagery and psycho-eccentric visual treatment. A WICKED TALE was released in its uncut version on DVD in December 2005 in Singapore along with INRI studio's debut film, e'TZAINTES.
It won the Gold Remi Award at the 2005 WorldFest in Houston, USA.

“He repelled, a short tale to make,
Fell into a sadness, then into a fast,
Thence to a watch, thence into a weakness,
Thence to a lightness, and by this declension,
Into the madness wherein now he raves.”

“Society has quite forsaken all her wicked courses,
Which empties our police courts, and abolishes divorces.”
