The Company of Wolves (1984)
Granny: Never stray from the path, never eat a windfall appleand never trust a man whose eyebrows meet in the middle.
A happy 66th birthday to the writer-director Neil Jordan, who's always managed to trot back and forth between serious stuff (a la The Crying Game and Michael Collins) and fairy tale nightmares like this movie and In Dreams and Byzantium. (I profoundly prefer the latter side of his career, obviously.)
Oh and awhile back we did one of our favorite "Ways Not To Die" posts for The Company of Wolves, you should definitely check that one out. It's the textbook definition of "redonkulous."
