Adapted from short stories drawn from Angela Carter’s revisionist fairytale collection The Bloody Chamber, director Neil Jordan’s second feature was one of the most surprising and startling British films of the early eighties. Centred on the troubled sexual awakening of a young girl, Rosaleen, the film’s modern-day frame opens up to reveal a dark dream world – a fairytale village nestled in the depths of a primeval forest where young men, both desired and feared, turn into werewolves on the prowl. At once sensual and seductive, genuinely eerie, and with eruptions of alarming violence, this exquisitely designed film is destined to linger in the memory.
