This collector's edition Steelbook includes DVD and Blu-ray.
Fascinating and imaginative The Company of Wolves, directed by Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Interview with a Vampire) brings together the timeless Little Red Riding Hood and werewolf fables with a haunting, compelling, eerie and erotic difference.
This movie is a magical bag of symbolic folklore about werewolves or rather their sexual connotation. Grandmother Angela Lansbury tells her granddaughter Sarah Patterson, disturbing tales about innocent maidens falling in love with handsome, heavily eyebrowed strangers that have a smouldering look in their eyes. She also tells her of sudden disappearances of spouses when the moon is round and the wolves are howling in the woods. Starring Angela Lansbury, Sarah Patterson, Graham Crowden, Brian Glover, Kathryn Pogson, Stephen Rea, Tusse Silberg.
Nominated for four BAFTA® awards including Best Costume Design, Best Make-up Artist, Best Production and Best Special Visual Effects the movie is a visual feast with timeless appeal.
Commentary by Director Neil Jordan
Behind The Scenes Dossier
The Company Of Wolves is a psychologically-themed retelling of the age-old fable "Little Red Riding Hood", which director Neil Jordan ("The Crying Game") has approached from a Freudian and slightly feminist angle. Angela Lansbury plays Grandma, who tells her dreaming granddaughter (Sarah Patterson) bizarre stories of handsome yet heavily eye-browed strange men, spouses who disappear during full moons, and storks and eggs. The film also stars David Warner ("Time After Time") and Stephen Rea ("The Crying Game").--This text refers to the DVD edition.

That said, I always balk when I see this film placed in the 'Horror' section of any store, and cringe whenever I read a synopsis describing this film as a story about werewolves. Both descriptions are very wide of the mark. This is a story about the transition from childhood to adulthood of a teenage girl, and the symbolism throughout the film is subtle and powerful simultaneously. As such, it pretty much goes without saying that if you are looking for a scary movie, you're probably in the wrong place.
The highlights of this movie are:- Angela Lansbury as 'Granny', who turns in a wonderful performance and really adds a touch of class to the film. Also, the set design and lighting is brilliant, evoking a truly gothic feel to the scenes. For example, most of the movie is based 'outdoors' (like in the woods or in the village), and yet you always get the feeling of an enclosed and somewhat foreboding environment. This feels exactly right given that the story is centred around the character of a young girl, whose world consists solely of the small and familiar surroundings of home, where the outside world is only known to her through the fantastic stories of her Grandmother, where men, wolves and 'straying from the path' are to be feared.Read more ›
As the extras are limited to a director's commentary, I would advise saving some money by purchasing the much cheaper standard DVD.
The film is based on story by the same name by Angela Carter, she re-writes Little Red Riding Hood, revaluating werewolves, women's sexuality and innocence. But the film goes one step further by directly bringing the film into the `present'; the protagonist is a young girl on the cusp of womanhood, whose dreams are troubled with wolves coming for her and her older sister who has already reached puberty. She seems to be both fearful and welcoming to adulthood, as she twists and turns in bed dreaming of her sister being hunted and killed by wolves, she wears makeup and smiles softly. Her dreams become more convoluted when she seems to become a young girl in the times when these myths were originally heeded, she acts out the moral warning and finds release, as does Carter's heroin in the company of wolves, not through fear but by accepting what is in myths the embodiment of man and nature combined - the werewolf, she becomes one and by doing this she embraces her own sexuality.
There is so much that can be analysed here but I'll keep it brief and simply say that this is an extraordinary film that deserves at least one viewing if for nothing more than experience, as its definitely that.
Coolest touch - an uncredited Terence Stamp as Mr. Suave Satan in a limo driven by Rosaleen-as-trashy-blonde. Who could resist him? (Not me!)
Cleverest fracture to the traditional fairy tale - the huntsman is also the wolf & we all know Rosaleen knows at once.
Better catch this wolf before the Hollywood remake!
