A fraught fever dream of a fairy tale from Chile inspired in part by the nightmarish goings-on at the Pinochet regime’s Colonia Dignidad torture colony, The Wolf House is something like a Little Red Riding Hood narrated by the wolf, an unpredictable, malevolent shape-shifter of a movie shot over five years of painstaking labor, much of it on the extraordinary stop-motion effects that make up its bulk. A film of constant disorienting transformations and smothering claustrophobia, showing the spirit of unsettling experimental animation found in the works of Walerian Borowczyk, Jan Lenica, and Jan ┼ávankmajer is alive and well.

STARRING: Amalia Kassai, Rainer Krause
