A Werewolf Film Like No Other

By Jay Villneff

During the night I watched a very unique film about werewolves called In The Company of Wolves. It’s a British gothic horror from 1984. It combines elements from the stories The Company of Wolves and The Werewolf from the book The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories by Angela Carter, while also drawing from reality and dreams. This makes for a unique experience from the visually stunning transformations to the strong female lead.

Well worth watching! Below are the links to materials mentioned and to watch said film:

Inventing Interesting People

12_quote

I love inventing interesting people and then pushing them to their absolute limits – and usually those absolute limits involve homicidal faeries, werewolves, or some other paranormal menace.

Ashkenaz Likes Werewolves?

Horror Quote #9

Another werewolf thing. Like most animals, we spent a large part of our lives engaged in the three Fs of basic survival. Feeding, fighting and… reproduction.
― Kelley Armstrong, Stolen

The third F was obviously farting. Feeding, fighting, and farting. Reproducing is for carbon-based life whose  ancestors were amoebas . . . What am I talking about? Well, it’s not me talking (Penny), it’s actually Ashkenaz. The other mortals have had their free-will (which is just a placebo, as you creatures are simply puppets) sucked out of them. I’ve noticed that this tends to happen to you when you’re preoccupied with work. Work is not as delightful as those illusory cats you desperately try to cling to.

Regardless of what I am not trying to say . . . As an overlord (and apparently an imprisoned resident of Jake’s attic–I have no idea how that happened, I swear) it is my infernal duty to pick up the slack of Team Monster.

I hate my non-life.

P.S: Enjoy your cat illusions! 

P.P.S: I really do like werewolves . . . They are . . . Delicious . . . 

(He really, really, wants to be relevant–Penny)
