Maria escapes from a religious cult to an abandoned house and finds two pigs that slowly morph into humans and the house into a dark, menacing world.

 

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 Švankmajer is alive and well.
