Description

FULL MOON'S EVE - 3RD ANNUAL WEREWOLF FILM MARATHON! 
 
 
40th ANNIVERSARY SCREENING Presented By NIGHTMARE ALLEY
 
 

 

THE DESIRE…THE FANTASY…THE NIGHTMARE.

Young Rosaleen dreams of a village in the dark woods, where Granny tells her cautionary tales in which innocent maidens are tempted by wolves who are hairy on the inside. As Rosaleen grows into womanhood, will the wolves come for her too?

Adapted by the author Angela Carter from her 1979 short story of the same name, director Neil Jordan (INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE, THE CRYING GAME) crafts an anthology entwined in the dark forest of dreams, luring us along the path to Grandmother's house with werewolves on our heels. Lush and surreal in its execution, the film delves deep into the inherent dangers of female desire, shrouded by the gothic darkness of subversive fairy tales. THE COMPANY OF WOLVES is an underseen gem of the genre that posits Little Red Riding Hood as an archetypal Final Girl. - Steven Landry
