“Never stray from the path, never eat a windfall apple, and never trust a man whose eyebrows meet.” “Good advice,” he said after first checking in the mirror. Join your faithful Grue-Crew – Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, Crystal Cleveland, and Jeff Mohr – as they check out maybe a more accurate telling of “Little Red Riding Hood” than you’re used to in The Company of Wolves (1984), as envisioned in three stories from The Bloody Chamber, a short story collection by Angela Carter.

A teenage girl in a country manor falls asleep while reading a magazine, and has a disturbing dream involving wolves prowling the woods below her bedroom window.

The Company of Wolves is directed by Neil Jordan (The Crying GameInterview with a Vampire) and stars Angela Lansbury, David Warner, Micha Bergese, and Sarah Patterson in her film debut. The tales woven into Jordan’s second feature film are primarily based on three werewolf stories (“The Company of Wolves,” “Wolf-Alice,” and “The Werewolf”) in Angela Carter’s short story collection The Bloody Chamber (1979).

An entirely different kind of werewolf movie, The Company of Wolves (1984) is definitely one you should consider for your must-watch list. Join the Grue-Crew as they revisit this wicked twist on fairy tales featuring Granny and Rosaleen – familiar, yet creatively original.

At the time of this writing, The Company of Wolves is available to stream from Peacock, Tubi, and Kanopy, among others. It is also available as a 4K UHD Collector’s Edition from Shout! Factory.

Every two weeks, Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s podcast will cover another horror film from the 1980s. The next episode’s film, chosen by Crystal, will be Vampire’s Kiss (1988). Is everyone ready for some Nicolas Cage energy?

Please let them know how they’re doing! They want to hear from you – the coolest, grooviest fans – so leave them a message or comment on the gruesome Magazine Youtube channel, on the website, or email the Decades of Horror 1980s podcast hosts at feedback@gruesomemagazine.com.
