When young teenager Rosaleen (Sarah Patterson) sleeps, she enters a nightmarish yet alluring dream world populated by werewolves. Her magical encounters become ever more fantastic as they give expression to her own burgeoning sexuality. Meanwhile, rumours grow that a real-life wolf is stalking the dark forest that edges onto Rosaleen's home. This adult interpretation of the 'Little Red Riding Hood' fairy tale is adapted from a series of short stories by Angela Carter.
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.

Unfortunatley the transition to Blu Ray is not so great. I can live with inconsistant picture quailty with the grainyness as there are some very beautiful scenes but the print from which this transfer was taken has artefacts at fairly regular intervals. The sound is my next issue as it has no multi channel or HD sound options. only dolby digital 2 channel or the usual directors commentary. The Extras are simply summed up by saying there are none !
I am having problems rating this so I will break it down to explain my 2 stars....
As a film it gets 5/5 its wonderful I love it and thats the only redeeming feature of this Blu Ray
As a blu ray transfer picture wise it score 1-2/5 too many grainy and artefact scenes though there are a few delightful scenes
Sound quality 1/5 a lack of HD, multichannel or foreign language tracks isn't good
This version is a big upgrade on the VHS copy I had but its been badly transfered and i suspect not a massive improvement on the DVD version so maybe stick with that. As much as it tears me up to say this,this is the worst transfer of a film to blu ray in my collection.
