"The Company Of Wolves" by Yojimbo

An adolescent girl dreams of a fairytale world inhabited by werewolves in this Gothic horror reinterpretation of the Red Hiding Hood story by Neil Jordan. The Company Of Wolves is loaded with metaphors and sexual symbolism, featuring snakes, hedgehogs, girls climbing tall trees and pure whites tainted by blood reds at every turn.

Company of Wolves

This movie is is full folklore about werewolves, or, rather, their sexual connotation.

Grandmother Angela Lansbury tells her granddaughter (Sarah Patterson) Rosaleen strange, disturbing tales about innocent maidens falling in love with handsome, heavily eyebrowed strangers with a smouldering look in their eyes; and about disappearances of spouses on there wedding night when the moon is round & the wolves are howling in the woods;

Not forgeting about babies inside stork eggs, in a stork nest.

The story is loosely based on Little Red Ridinghood who meets a handsome he-wolf! with joined eyebrows.

All the stories are somehow are about loss of innocence, and fear of/hunger for (a newly acquired sense of) sexuality; their Freudian character is mirrored in their dreamlike state....
