In the Company of Wolves (1984)

Neil Jordan directs Sarah Patterson, Angela Lansbury and David Warner in this feminist exploration of werewolf / Little Red Riding Hood tales.

Angela Carter adapts her own short stories that intwine young womanhood, lycanthropy and storytelling itself into this esoteric adult fantasy. A lot of the symbolism and FX work has aged some episodes horribly but the implicit sexual charge coursing through all the varied encounters and Anton Furst’s beautiful set designs hold true to make this a lush, unique treat. A wild rarity.
