A good movie

Even though we don’t hear much from him anymore, I always had a weak spot for Neil Jordan’s work so I was definitely eager to check this flick. Back in the 90’s, he made one of the most interesting vampire flicks, ‘Interview with the Vampire’ but many forget that he also made a werewolves feature just at the beginning of his career.

Granny tells her granddaughter Rosaleen strange, disturbing tales about innocent maidens falling in love with handsome, heavily eyebrowed strangers with a smoldering look in their eyes; about sudden disappearances of spouses when the moon is round ...

A good movie

“Even though we don’t hear much from him anymore, I always had a weak spot for Neil Jordan’s work so I was definitely eager to check this flick. Back in the 90’s, he made one of the most interesting vampire flicks, ‘Interview with the Vampire’ but many forget that he also made a werewolves feature just at the beginning of his career. I must admit that the whole thing was pretty mesmerizing to behold. Indeed, it really looked awesome and, at times, it was pretty weird and creepy but it fit really well the fairy tale style. The special effects were also pretty impressive, with no CGI back then, everything was handmade, increasing the general creepy feeling. The other interesting thing was the multiple levels of story telling (up to 3 levels) , up to a point that you didn’t really ” read more

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"Director Neil Jordan had wanted Andy Warhol to play the role of the Devil. Producer Stephen Woolley traveled to New York to meet Warhol, who had recently been shot, and Warhol agreed to do the film. However, fearing for his life if he traveled, he would only play the role if his scenes were shot in New York. This was impossible, and so Jordan cast his friend Terence Stamp in the role. Stamp agreed to do the role if Jordan bought him a suit, which Jordan did, much to Stamp's amusement. Director"

Werewolf shit (my little top list) (46 movies items)

"Taianomaisiin, jättisieniä puskeviin synkkiin metsiin sijoittuva kaunis ja vahvasti tunnelmallinen seksuaalista pelottelua sisältävä satu huvittavilla ihmissusilla ja loppukohtauksessa lauhkealla koiralaumalla korvatuilla ulisijoilla. Helvetin mukaansatempaava ja hyvän jälkifiiliksen jättävä leffa, jonka huumorikin nykypäivän alleviivatusta "tässä pitää nauraa" -kaavasta poiketen toimii."

Top ten werewolf movies (10 movies items)

"This ones seems to be more obscure, at least I think it is, because I never see it on most people's lists of favorite werewolf movies. I always wondered why this film wasn't more celebrated. perhaps it's because Company of Wolves really isn't a horror movie, it's a dark fantasy, an adult take on Little red Riding hood. The set designs by Anton Furst is gorgeous. Also of note, the stories told are based on actually werewolf legend and aren't your typical Hollywood werewolf tales, which is a treat"

Werewolf movies I love (10 movies items)

"Not really a horror film but still about werewolves, the main plot centers around the retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and how that story, similar to Ginger Snaps, is a metaphor for a young girl coming into her sexuality. Great mini stories all based around wolves and again great make-up.This also is one of my favorite fairy tale movies. "
