Movie Info

Mary is a girl who seeks refuge in a mysterious house in southern Chile, after escaping from a sect of German religious fanatics. There it is welcomed by two pigs, the only inhabitants of the place. As in a dream, the universe of the house reacts to the feelings of Mary. The animals slowly transform into humans, and the house into a nightmarish world. Made in stop-motion and inspired by the case of Colonia Dignidad - a torture center in Pinochet's time - "La Casa Lobo" appears to be an animated fairy tale produced by the cult leader to indoctrinate his followers , resulting in a dark universe of gothic referents and psychological horror.

The deeply uncanny pic makes for an unsettling viewing experience, a creative tour de force whose endlessly fascinating visuals are deliberately seductive and repellent in equal measure.

I may be the wrong person to speak of the true meaning under the layers of allegory, but I can certainly tell you that regardless of the understanding you bring to it, The Wolf House makes for a greatly troubling time.

An elusive animated feature in stop-motion that allows connections to be made with the children's stories of the Grimm Brothers and the surreal impulse of Jan Svankmajer.
