The Company Of Wolves (1984)

Rating: ****
Cast: Angela Lansbury, David Warner, Sarah Patterson

Wow. This is a truly amazing film. It's a bizarre and psychologically twisted rendition of the classic "Little Red Riding Hood," featuring innocently alluring Sarah Patterson as the red-hooded Rosalee and Angela Lansbury as her frumpy grandmother. The film is full of wonderfully strange and terrifying imagery, and students of symbolism will be delighted and overwhelmed. The sets and effects are excellent and the look and feel of film is mystically creepy throughout. A stunning piece of work that deserves wider recognition.
